Confessions of a Political Animal

European Left Watch: Spanish Regional Elections

Spain held regional elections at the weekend, which turned out to be something of a mixed bag for the ruling Socialist Party (PSOE). Generally, for reasons of time, the Animal doesn’t propose to cover regional elections – particularly as the materials that need researching tend to be in languages over which I have a very shaky grasp. And there’s inevitably someone with more of an insight of me.

In this instance, I’d like to point you to this excellent post by the Animal’s good friend Dave Cole, who writes about the possibility of the first post-Franco non-nationalist coalition in the Spanish part of the Basque Country, with PSOE as the possible leaders, combined with the main centre-right opposition party.
