The last years have been marked by the absolute majorities of the PP since 2011, when Jose Maria Garcia Urbano took the baton of command, and has since revalidated to date, being one of the most voted for mayors in Spain in municipalities with more than 50,000 inhabitants.

In the 2019 elections, the popular candidate swept in Estepona and expanded its previous absolute majority. From 17 councilors he went to 21, with 16,828 votes.
The growth of the popular occurred at the expense of PSOE and United Left. The socialists lowered two ediles; going from six to four. Izquierda Unida lost its only councilor. And the high expectations around Ciudadanos and Vox were not met, since none of these formations entered the Estepona City Hall in the previous elections.
