This paper describes PoliticES 2023, a shared task organized within the workshop IberLEF 2023 in the framework of the 39th edition of the International Conference of the Spanish Society for Natural Language Processing. This second edition of the task shares the goal of the first edition of PoliticES, which is to extract political ideology and other psychographic and demographic characteristics of users in social networks. What is new this year is that the traits are extracted from text clusters of users who share the same traits, and that celebrities have been included as a type of profession. This edition attracted 43 teams, of which 11 submitted results and 8 sent papers describing their systems. Most of the participants proposed Transformers-based approaches, but others also used traditional machine learning algorithms.
