In only one year since it was created as a foundation, Equo has managed to gather enough support to run for presidency in 38 out of the 52 Spanish provinces (further divisions of the autonomous communities). For that, they had to collect the signatures of at least 0.1% of the electorate in each of those provinces, a new measure imposed to parties without previous representation in Parliament. In another five provinces they will run alongside other ideologically related parties accounting, in total, for 82.7% of Spanish territory.
