BARCELONA Sagrada Familia -the church in the foreground in a park playing guitar.

Having Llorente , 29, singing a song, which tells the dictator Francisco Franco atrocities and civil war heritage in Spain. It also tells about a country where the leaders have forgotten the people.

– to Me the traditional political parties are practically one and the same thing. They are guilty of corruption and only care about power and money.

the Major parties of corruption scandals have undermined trust in politicians, especially amongst young people. Recently, the focus has been, for example, the people's party is the Peoples Party former Madrid regional leader, who is suspected of corruption and abuse of public funds.

Podemos got the youth movement and other political parties began to woo them.

Take Llorente represent young people who are enthusiastic about voting recently. She told me she'd gone to the polls for the first time five years ago, when the left-wing Podemos party was founded.

the Party said he wanted to improve the position of young people in the labour market, for example by calculating, inter alia, of small business payments.

Before I experienced that no one really would drive young people's interests, Llorente said.

– Traditional parties have not taken youth into account, because the largest age group have always been the most enthusiastic voters. At the same time young people's interest in politics has fallen even further, Madrid university educational policy professor Ignacio Jurado said.

Jurada, according to Spain throughout the democratic period by the prevalent two party system started to fall apart only after 2014. At that time, the socialist party PSOE and people's party Partido Party alongside began to appear new, fast support collect those parties including the leftist Podemos.

– Podemos got the youth movement and other political parties began to woo them, Jurado said, and pointed out that the two party system being broken is the young voter, thanks.

Social support for young people are non-existent. As a result young people are moving away from home still later. The birth rate is the lowest in 40 years.

in Particular, the country suffered the economic crisis and the young educated Spanish mass exodus abroad provoked the parties.

the researcher Jurada according to podemos's support among young people the percentage is higher than the other, but not significantly.

–in Other than you might perhaps think, 20-year-olds to vote in Spain in the end in much the same way as the 40-year-olds.

Because the fees are bad, I can't afford to pay the high business fees. That is why I work off the books.

Companies to take young people to work in unpaid internships, but after a period of companies can not afford to offer the right contract.

Also, social support for young people and the needy are non-existent.

the debate bike the election campaign of the Catalan crisis around.

Also Take Llorente followed by a debate.

even Though he is not Catalan, sympathizes he separatists and has also been involved in the Catalan independence demanding protests.

– independence movement is, above all, is to make a clean break of the Spanish regime toon. Therefore, the Catalan separatists represent the liberation movement also us from other parts of Spain came in, Llorente said.

This the day of elections, politicians, the concern is not only the poor youth participation. Researcher Ignacio Jurada, it is likely that voter turnout will decline in all age groups.

the situation of the winners seem to survive the right-wing parties. Especially a lot of their support is raised the right-wing is described as Vox, which can opinion polls, according to (you move to another service)rose to the third biggest party.

– Catalan crisis and the recent troubles are the party's popularity behind them, Jurado said.

the Party opposes, inter alia, feminism and sexual minorities rights.

Party leader Santiago Abascal is known as Spanish Donald trump of . Abascal is, inter alia, the proposed wall on the Moroccan neighbor, on the African coast for the enclaves Ceuta and Melilla, in order to Africa come from migrants can be halted.

the extreme right – wing also appeals to young people, because their rhetoric nation is a clear and easily understandable.

Also Jurado believes Voxin to rise.

– Catalan crisis and the recent troubles are the party's popularity behind.

Take Llorentea the extreme right's rise scares.
