Spain’s Far Right Poised to Make Historic Return to Power

Spain is on the brink of a historic election that could see the far right return to power for the first time since the country’s transition to democracy in the late 1970s.

Opinion polls suggest that the right-wing Popular Party (PP) is on track to win the most votes in Sunday’s election, but it is unlikely to secure an absolute majority. This would mean that the PP would need to form a coalition government with the far-right Vox party, which has been steadily gaining popularity in recent years.

Vox is a populist, nationalist party that has been accused of racism, xenophobia, and Islamophobia. The party’s leader, Santiago Abascal, has called for Spain to be “reconquered” from immigrants and for the country to leave the European Union.

If Vox were to enter government, it would represent a major shift in Spanish politics. The party’s policies would likely have a significant impact on issues such as immigration, security, and social welfare.

The outcome of the election is still uncertain, but it is clear that the far right is a major force in Spanish politics. If Vox does enter government, it will be a watershed moment for the country and for the European Union as a whole.
