After government only formed in a second election attempt in 2016, Spanish citizens will now cast their vote in a snap election on April 28. Less than one month later, Spaniards will have to vote again for their local, regional and European representatives on May 26.

Campaigning ahead of the Spanish parliamentary elections on 28 April has brought to the fore the many, primarily domestic, challenges that the country faces. Those range from imminent economic issues, such as a new budget, unemployment and public debts, to the political discourse on Catalonia. They also include long-term developments, such as questions on demography and ageing population, as well as immigration. These hot topics will be decisive among Spanish voters in the upcoming elections.

As none of the Spanish parties is expected to win a large majority, they will have to forge alliances in an increasingly fragmented political landscape. Founded in 2005, the Spanish liberal party Ciudadanos currently represents the strongest liberal force in Southern Europe. Which reforms do they propose for the upcoming years? Which political partners are they ready to work with? Where do Spanish liberals stand between the several elections?
Our next liberal breakfast aims to shed light on these and many other questions, so join us for a discussion with our distinguished speakers!
