  • Women Driving Political Change

Sunday, 5 June 2011

I cannot help preparing to depart Costa De Sol without a brief mention of the recent held municipal & regional elections in Spain. Where I'm residing in Benalmadena, the conservative opposition right wing, Popular Party (PP) faired extremely well, coming first.

The political unrest of recent protests in Spain Squares have suffered the current Socialist rule, Spain's Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero was notably targeted down to the recent failures in the economy, high rise of unemployment followed by malpractice & corruption allegations.

It will be interesting to see how the political landscape in Spain changes in the future, in 2012 nationally whether the recent political unrest will sustain to change by voting democratic power to the Popular Party.

  1. I think that what needs to happen in Spain (and Portugal) is for the state to get off the back of business so that enterprise can flourish and their young will have opportunities.

    The inflexibility in the labour market and the cost and red tape imposed by government on business means that there would appear to be great potential for great improvement with little effort provided the will is there.
