It will be the end of bipartisanship in Spain?

After years of austerity and successive corruption scandals, the Popular Party (PP), Mariano Rajoy, Prime Minister must lose part of the support that allowed him to rule 11 of the 13 communities that renew regional parliaments. But the announced fall of the conservatives should not benefit the Socialists, as was the case in the past.

If the PP should watch a leak of votes for the ' Ciudadanos ', the PSOE is facing the threat of ' Can '. Albert Rivera and Pablo Iglesias, who has more followers on Twitter than Rajoy, hope to capitalize on the youth vote, the more hampered by unemployment, which reaches more than 20% of the active population.

The struggle for capital also arouses much attention. Esperanza Aguirre, a dinosaur PP politician, returned to activity but faces stiff opposition from left-wing platform Ahora Madrid, led by retired judge, Manuela Carmena. The same is true in Barcelona, where the Nationalist Xavier Trias is threatened by Ada Colau, a ' Muse ' the outraged, who also founded the platform against the evictions.
