Election in Spain: Not a Minute to lose

After the Failure of his budget in the Parliament of Spain, Prime Minister hidden Encyclical on elections. It is also calculus: hidden Encyclical of hopes to his followers to mobilise.

The elections are for Spain is no Surprise. That Pedro Sánchez would quit, it has emerged on Wednesday. Sánchez had not managed to bring its budget proposal through Parliament: The conservative forces, and Catalan separatists made him beg for it.

Sánchez could make with the budget of the conservative predecessor government. But he has decided otherwise: "Either we continue with a budget that is not ours. A household that does not respond to social demands that our country needs. Or, we believe, as I do, that Spain did not lose a Minute. After consultations with the Council of Ministers, I proposed to dissolve the Parliament and to the 28. April to hold elections."

Rule by decree

This is a difficult term in office comes to an end for Sánchez. He had led in Spain, a minority government, his socialists had around a quarter of the seats in Parliament.

So he had to mainly by decree to rule. He had, among other things, the minimum wage raise. He also made sure that all residents in Spain have the right to medical care - including migrants without a residence permit. Many other projects remained.

With the soon-to-be new elections, want to lose of a socialist, in fact, seems not a Minute. Sánchez hopes to be able to his followers to mobilize, because the political landscape in Spain is currently polarized.

Conservatives are satisfied

On the one hand, the parties of the left, with the promise that it should go after years of crisis, the poorer Spaniards better. And the belief that the conflict with the separatists should be solved in Catalonia, in a gentle way. On the other hand, the Conservatives, who warn of large social benefits and, in the case of Catalonia, a hard-line challenge. The Chairman of the conservative people's party, Pablo Casado, continued as in the past few weeks a particularly sharp tone.

"We are satisfied. We remembered the nine months of the Pedro Sánchez on his promise to hold elections. He has been a long time did not realize that he would keep this promise. That he had to do it now, but that is up to the people's party. She has managed the Sánchez government had to throw in the towel," he said.

Correct the members of his people's party are not able to enjoy. There she stands in the polls badly and could lose elections seats. Profiteers in the conservative camp are, therefore, the liberal-conservative "Ciudadanos", and also the legal national party Vox. Not previously represented in the Spanish Parliament. This is likely to change soon.

Everything is open

The Parliament is likely to remain even after the elections fragmented, believes the political scientist Pablo Simón. In the channel "La Sexta" he said: "There are the polls, according to two possible scenarios: One is that the people's party, Ciudadanos, and Vox to get the absolute majority. But it may also be that neither the Left nor the Right, to reach the absolute majority. In any case, is not a Separatist of Catalonia will lift a Pablo Casado into the office," says Simón.

so, It could be that because of this Blockade Sánchez after the election once more will reign. With a very shaky majorities. At least no Trouble for Europe, from Spain: Both the conservatives and the forces of the left are Pro-European set.
