18 months, 3 elections?

18 months, 3 elections?

Hi guys! How are you?  

As you might know, the last elections in Spain were held six months ago, more precisely, on April the 28th. Normally, a legislature lasts for four years, but there have been some problems. That’s why the government has announced new elections next Sunday, November 10th.

Due to PSOE not obtaining the majority of votes, if they wanted to form a government, they had to make an agreement with the other parties. There were a few options that Pedro Sánchez, the PSOE’s leader, could have chosen, such as mixing up with Podemos, a left-wing party, or Ciudadanos, a central right. Because of their differences, they didn’t come to an understanding. That’s the reason why we’re voting again only a few months later.

Did you know that in the last year and a half, there have been three elections in Spain? Do you know why? Our last president, Mariano Rajoy, was kicked out of his position because of our lack of confidence and support. What do you think about it? Are Spanish politicians doing their job properly?
