ElPais: UPyD gets into madrid strongly
[Rosa Díez]'s party keeps garnering citizen support since it was founded in September 2007: it got, newly born, one seat in the General election of 2008 - 3006k votes, more than [left Catalan Nationalists] ERC and nearly as many as [right Basque nationalists] PNV --, another seat in the 2009 Basque regional elections and, that same year, one MEP. In those European elections it was the only party that grew in votes since the General: no less than a 47% increase. In these elections, with more candidates on their lists than party members (some 6000), with a budget of barely €1.2M and with a campaign os street events throughout Spain, the party succeeded in establishing itself and getting into the Madrid city council and regional goverment.
