This chapter focuses on the outcome of the February 1936 elections. By 17 February it was evident that the Popular Front had not merely won but would hold a parliamentary majority. That fact was not contested at the time, but subsequently there were much controversy and confusion about the overall totals in the popular vote, made more confusing by the functioning of the alliance system. One of the most remarkable results was that, ultimately, seventeen of the twenty-two Communist candidates gained seats.
