CatalanCatalansAutonomous Community of Catalonia
In absolute terms, Madrid's economy is roughly equal in size to that of Catalonia, which remains Spain's largest. The Assembly of Madrid, a directly elected body, represents the people of Madrid and exercises the legislative power of the community in approving and supervising the budget and in coordinating and controlling the actions of the government. The seat of the Assembly is located in Madrid, in the district of Puente de Vallecas. The members of the legislature (currently 129) are elected through proportional representation with closed-party lists and a 5% electoral threshold in a single region-wide constituency. The elections follow the normal electoral calendar set for most autonomous communities (with the exception of Catalonia, the Basque Country, Galicia, and Andalusia). The only exception to this occurred in 2003, in which due to the refusal of two socialist deputies to follow party discipline after the May election prevented the formation of any government. Therefore, new elections were held in October, outside the established electoral calendar. The last election took place on 24 May 2015. The next election is scheduled to be held on 26 May 2019.
