The landscape after the parliamentary election in Andalusia looks bleak. But, Dick Nichols argues, that hidden beneath the dark statistics, a seed of hope germinated.
Pablo Iglesias’s plan for the left to win the Madrid elections was simple: to inspire the workers and poor of the region surrounding the Spanish capital to vote, writes Dick Nichols.
On November 12, largely in reaction to the rise of the right-wing Vox, Socialist Workers' Party leader Pedro Sánchez and Unidas Podemos' Pablo Iglesias stitched up a pre-agreement for government in less than 48 hours, writes Dick Nichols.
Spain’s acting Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez, leader of the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE) and winner of the April 28 general election, informed King Philip on September 17 that he lacked the support to form a government. As a result, another general election will be held on November 10.
