Centre-right won more votes

After 99.2% of the votes are counted, the centre-right has 1,271,903 votes against the socialists' 1,250,888. Yet the socialists will control the Parliament with 87 MPs, while the centre-right will have by 82. This is caused by a system in which votes in rural areas give more mandates for the parliament than the urban areas, which favours the left. Contrary to many other countries, centre-right parties are broadly speaking more urban and liberal (as defined by the European term) than the socialists.

Keep up this, please. News from the darker sides of this, our next four years, would be highly appreciated (the word is being spread)
