PODEMOS – HERE WE COME!

  • On an extraordinary day for Spanish politics on Sunday 20th of December: The ruling Partido Popular (PP) lost many votes and fell well short of a majority, and the prospect of a coalition government will be reality, with a lot of «horse trading», I guess!
  • With 99% of the votes counted, the PP was on course to take 123 seats in the 350-seat legislature, led by the political clown Mariano Rajoy, the current (hopefully not longer) prime minister, they got almost 29% of the vote, leaving them with a third fewer seats than they received in the 2011 election (they should have lost much more, as a result of their extreme neoliberal politics, I don’t understand Spanish voters here).
  • The Socialists came second, with 90 seats and 22% of the vote.
  • The two new parties could now hold the balance of power in a future coalition government: the anti-austerity and socialist alternative, Podemos, won 69 seats, the centrist-liberalists Ciudadanos 40 seats.
  • Rajoy has said he will try to from a “stable government” as Spain “needs security and confidence”. What security does he mean? Security and confidence for the capitalists, of course! He’s a right winger, remember!
  • Pablo Iglesias, the leader of Podemos, has hailed this election result as the birth of “a new Spain” and the death of decades of two-party politics. Let’s hope he’s right and that this will be a different story for Podemos in Spain than for Syriza. so far, in Greece.

Congratulation PODEMOS with third and 20.7 procent and 69 seats!
