Commentary, Analysis, and Implications

by Ruy Scalamandré

1 August 2023

In this paper we discuss:

  • How the PP and Feijóo had won the election, but don't have enough support for a governing coalition;
  • The good performance of PSOE and Sumar;
  • How Carles Puigdemont’s Junts por Catalunya could be decisive in forming government;
  • That Vox suffered a punishment in the polls;
  • How  public debt, pension reform, and economic stagnation will be some of the most important challenges for the XV legislature.
  • why uncertainty over who will govern remains, but the Spanish party system appears to be stabilising after years of turbulence.
