Footnotes:
  • 1 Meeting Point for Self-Determination results are compared to Basque Citizens totals in the 1999 elections.
  • 2 The Supreme Court annulled 229 of the 249 lists of Meeting Point for Self-Determination due to them being a continuation of the outlawed Unity and Basque Citizens parties. Consequently, these forces called for their voters to cast invalid ballots. Results for AuB refer only to the lists that were not invalidated.
