Spain votes anti-austerity
« on: Tuesday, 26 May, 2015 @ 14:10:49 »
Spain follows Greece as anti-austerity parties sweep local election
Spain’s political future has been thrown up in the air after local elections saw the dominance of its two big political parties destroyed, and sparked unwelcome comparisons with Greece

Europe’s Left-wing anti-austerity parties have claimed another victory after a surpise triumph in Spain’s local elections.

The defeat of the two main parties that have dominated Spanish politics for more than 40 years means that a series of new Left-wing movements now hold the balance of power, inviting an unwelcome comparison with Greece.

In all of Spain’s major cities, including Madrid and Barcelona, coalitions will be required.
