Spanish Ciudadanos Establish as Liberal-Centrist Force

Albert Rivera is excited and in a defiant mode. Last Sunday, the leader of the Spanish Liberals achieved what other liberal parties in Europe might dream of. In only four years, he and his team of the “Equipo Naranja” (Team Orange, based on the orange colour of the party) further expanded their parliamentary presence and established themselves as liberal-centrist force in Spain. Ciudadanos (Cs) is now the third force nationally and are represented by 57 congressmen and women which is nearly the double compared to the previous elections in 2016 (32).

Zwischen Ende April und Ende Mai finden auf der iberischen Halbinsel gleich vier Wahlen statt: nationale, kommunale, regionale und europäische Wahlen, die letzten drei sogar parallel. Eine Herausforderung für die spanische Parteien und ihre Anhänger.
