Ciudadanos is part of the Andalusian government

On 2 December 2018, an early election was held in the Spanish region of Andalusia in which ALDE member party Ciudadanos emerged as the big winner with more than doubling theirs seats.

Following 40 years of Socialist dominance, the region is now ruled by a minority government composed of Partido Popular and Ciudadanos.

After weeks of negotiation, on 9 January, a comprehensive reform agreement of 90 measures was agreed on as Andalusia suffered from massive corruption scandals as well as Spain’s worst educational indicators, the highest unemployment rates and the highest taxes in the country.

On 16 January, the Parliament voted in favour of a PP-Ciudadanos government with a majority of 59 votes, with Juan Manuel Moreno Bonilla (PP) appointed as premier and Ciudadanos taking half of the Cabinet positions and the vice-presidency.
