In Spain’s most-recent 10th November 2019 general election, the NCa and CC ran in coalition and won 123,981 votes, for a 0.51 percent share of the total vote, which was down 13,125 votes and 0.02 percent from the last-previous elections in April 2019. The coalition’s vote total gave it two seats in Spain’s 350-member national Congress of Deputies, with one seat going to NCa and one seat to CC.
