Spanish regional elections, 1983


The 1983 Spanish regional elections were held on Sunday, 8 May 1983 in Spain, to elect the regional parliaments of 13 of the 17 autonomous communities: Aragon, Asturias, the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands, Cantabria, Castile-La Mancha, Castile and León, Extremadura, Madrid, Murcia, Navarre, La Rioja and the Valencian Community. Andalusia, Catalonia, Galicia and the Basque Country did not held elections that day because they had separate electoral cycles. Municipal elections were held throughout Spain the same day.
