Assessment of this violence: two arrests and about fifteen wounded including a member of the Vox party hit in the hand by a stone.

Third political force in the country, the Vox party allowed the right to regain power in Madrid in 2019 through an alliance with the Popular Party and Ciudadonos. But the resignation a month ago of the president of the region, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, from the PP, has reshuffled the cards. Voters are called to the polls on May 4.
