Communist electoral expectations placed the Party as a substantial part of Parliament and a leading actor in the democratic process that was beginning. However after the elections, the party ended up being the third political force in the country. The aim of this study is to identify and analyze possible factors that might have influenced the electoral presence of the party and therefore to understand the causes of the election results. Particular interest is placed on whether these were of exogenous nature, as the party defended, or of endogenous nature. The work focuses only on the scope of the Congress of Deputies.
