Pacts and alliances against the electoral clock in Spain

Madrid, Jun 8 (Prensa Latina) Spanish political forces are currently intensifying their negotiations since they have less than 24 hours to meet the deadline to form pacts and alliances for the general elections.

The speed is not coexisting well at the moment around the Sumar movement, headed by the current 2nd Vice-President and Minister of Labor, Yolanda Diaz, in talks with “Podemos” (We Can) party to try to run alongside the elections.

“Podemos” party, on the one hand, is a consolidated left-wing organization, although it had an important drop in the municipal and autonomic elections on past May 28.

Diaz is among the most popular political figures in Spain, and despite she is the maximum representative in the Government of “Unidas Podemos” (United We Can), which is “Izquierda Unida” (United Left) and “Podemos” (We Can), she needs to show herself as an alternative with joint backing on July 23rd election.

The Minister of Finance and second highest responsible of the Spanish Socialist Workers Party (PSOE), Maria Jesus Montero, asked this Thursday to Sumar and Podemos parties to think about going together to the general elections.

“The progressive electorate cannot cast their vote in any formation that has no prospect of obtaining institutional representation.

What we hope is that the space to the left of the PSOE be configured so that it can have greater profitability in electoral terms to seduce the electorate that does not want to vote for the PSOE,” Montero pointed.

However, it is not clear yet if the six public debates requested by Spain’s President the socialist Pedro Sanchez, to the leader of the conservative Popular Party (PP), Alberto Nuñez Feijóo, will take place, in some way the confrontation tones down the atmosphere.
