Elections in Castilla y León mark the political pulse of Spain

Elections in Castilla y León mark the political pulse of Spain

Madrid, Feb 11 (Prensa Latina) This Sunday's elections in Castilla y León will mark the political pulse of Spain, in a bid that favors the right wing, while the left seeks prominence.

The autonomous community of Castilla y León is traditionally a bastion of the right under the command of Alfonso Fernández Mañueco (Partido Popular (PP)) since 2019. But clearly, it will only manage to win again in alliance with the far-right Vox party.

Mañueco’s own statements evidence this almost explicitly. The president of the PP, Pablo Casado, has spared no effort to attack the Unified Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE), the central government and anything left-wing in Spain in order to overcome their rivals.

On the other hand, the President of the Government, Pedro Sanchez, who is also the leader of the PSOE, is at the head of the left to try to find a good result in Castilla y León.

Podemos, the Communist Party and Izquierda Unida, mainly, have joined the campaign. Ciudadanos, from the center right, appears to be ahead of the PP, but does not want to enter an agreement with neither of these organizations nor the PSOE.

In 2019, in the last general elections, the sum of PP, Ciudadanos and Vox accounted for 43 percent of the votes throughout Spain, although this rose to 57% in Castilla y León, proving that the PP has been especially strong in the province for 35 years.
