Portugal: Divided Left Wins 50% of Vote, but Right Retains PowerThe Bloco de Esquerda (Left bloc)
 made a breakthrough. It got 5,2% in the last election.  Now it has 
10.22%. It’s worth noting that some opinion polls had given them around 

The Portuguese right wing coalition has 
lost its absolute majority in parliament, but remains the main political
 force in Sunday’s election. The Left Bloc made a spectacular comeback 
with the best result ever, almost doubling its voters and more than 
doubling the number of elected MPs.
