    Spanish elections roundup

    We have been talking so much about american political issues, that we neglect our own.
    Two polls are going to be held next March 14th (which will meet me, by the way, in Italy): general elections to the two chambers of the spanish parliament, the congress and the senate, and elections to the andalusian parliament, only in the region where I live, Andalucia.
    Elections in Spain have become very much the same as in any other country in Europe: the incumbent party, the center-right PP, which has been ruling for eight years, is pitted against a center-right party, PSOE, socialist, with other smaller parties (nationalist, regionalist, and far left) vying for mindshare and votes.
    Elections are fun enough, but if you have a dab of truce (but only in a region) thrown in, it becomes hilarious.
    At the end of the day, Spain is a country where swing vote is a minority, maybe less than 10% of the total.
    Voting is a great thing. We should do it more often. It would be even better if we could vote for the american president.

    So many of us agree on the "we should be able to vote for the American president" that I find it surprising no-one has made up a fake election for non-US citizens.

    It's too much trouble... starting with the primaries, caucuses, whatnots... :-)

    There was a posting in the BBC today about the Spanish elections (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/3516111.stm) and I began immediately looking for english language Spanish blogs on this issue. Its funny enough to see that if the press isn't writing about it - nor are the bloggers (in great quantity that is).

    Nice to see that you are from Granada, I was there a year ago, studying empresariales on the cartuja ;)

    You can find lots of postings in spanish, but very few of them in english; not that there are many expatriates blogging or spanish people blogging in English, of course.
    Great you like Granada. It's a nice city to live and study.
    I'll post an update today. Thanks for the link.
