End of bipartisanship Spanish; new era of citizenship within the institutions

Do you want to see policy in all caps? Photo of the backstage last night. Without care, there is no possible victory ♡♥ pic.twitter.com/vMdohTaIrr

The list "Barcelona en Comú" integrates the "we can", Catalunya Verds (ICV), Esquerra Unida, Procés Constituent and Equo, for siso even victory will cost some divisions and shares, to govern. But for now, it's party time.

If, on the one hand, the vote is fragmented, on the other hand, shows have been a clear and strong vote of cidadina against the crisis and the consequences in the life of the population.   Alda Colau will become the first woman ever to win the camera of the Catalan capital and will lead the municipal government with 11 coalition partners, members muncipais. Their militancy and strong character show, as she claims, who won the hope against the resignation and fear via @el_pais. Won a real person against a any character of public life, "the girl next door", as he called the El País.

Ada Colau:

-I am convinced that we are completing a cycle after decades of bipartisanship, of parties that have ruled with majority and dominate the political scene, but in which citizens vote for four years without actually decide anything.

The goal of Ada Colau is to make of Barcelona a reference in the democratic revolution. Intends to put in place a contingency plan against poverty and create a municipal office against corruption. Became conhcida when he formed the platform of affected by Mortgage (PAH), which, as the name implies, fought tirelessly to prevent the eviction of those who can't afford the House to the Bank.  Ada Colau:

-Starting today, may 25, we must change the way we do politics, starting with transparency, by knowing everything, absolutely everything, what's in the adminsitrações, which was stolen, the posts of senior officials controlled by political parties, it is necessary to put everything in order.

Until the elections was responsible for housing at the Observatory of economic, social and Cultural Rights (ESCR) of Barcelona.

During the election campaign, gave primacy to the direct contact with citizens, aware that every vote was important. The camera takes a team without any municipal experience (who say they have been a requirement of the candidate) and the belief that the increasing social inequalities are the fault of the previous Presidents.

Is the moment of truth. ADA Colau appeared to win the election and went into politics to stay.

-Many municipalities and regions of Spain now have new faces, people who never imagined entering politics. After the election it is time to open dialogue and reaching agreements.

To help us interpret the results of the local and regional elections in Spain, we looked at the Ortega y Gasset Foundation, with the professor of political science at the Autonomous University of Madrid, Fernando Vallespín. He retains two evidence:

Fernando Vallespín â€" there are two dice: one, is the spectacular loss of political power of the governing party, the Popular Party, and the other, the symbolic value of success in cities like Madrid and Barcelona, of these platforms of citizens who rivalled the great parties and that, in the case of Barcelona constitziram the first option of the voters and in Madrid ... almost.

Two women, an activist in the field and the other prestigious ex-magistrada, led two lists without partisan label to govern the cameras of Barcelona and Madrid. What have they in common?

Fernando Vallespín-Both Ada Colau, which is a symbol of anti-establishment movements of the toughest moments of the crisis, Manuela Carmena, are people who have the ability to aggregate people who don't necessarily have the same political colour, but that represent this new sensibility that we observe in Spain after the economic crisis.

The huge share of territorial power accumulated by Mariano Rajoy's Party since the election of 2011 evaporated. Neither the leader's personal involvement in the campaign, nor economic recovery earned him. What consequences does this have for the head of the Spanish Government?

* Fernando Vallespín-Or Mariano Rajoy radically changes the speech, and it takes a significant number of new elements to the Government, or it will be very difficult for him this season until nationwide elections. I think that the way of doing politics sunk, notably in Madrid and Valencia, two of the major defeats of the Party in these elections, but also in other places where corruption is evidente.*

The results confirm the loss of power of the two major parties, PP and PSOE, which, alone, have 70% of the votes in the past. That balance of power exists now?

* Fernando Vallespín â€" I think the results necessarily clarified the Spanish political landscape, at least in terms of the relative power held by the two major parties, in terms of impact of votes. There was a mobilization of left but not translated into increased votes at parties how we can or Citizens. In other words, the result was revolutionary because, before, these parties were not in institutions and are from now on. But the path was discreet, as seen in the sondagens.*

Finally, that there will be, in the regions and perspectives Spanish cities, where there is no one that can constitute a Government of absolute majority?

Fernando Vallespín â€" there's a contradiction experienced by Spanish citizens, who will observe the magnifying glass the action of these new moves since they make alliances as they have of making deals, but, on the other hand, citizens want governability and, therefore, these pacts. The parties do not know how to act, because there is a situation of some instability, no doubt, but that logic will recover after the November elections, for sure.
