I was actually planning to do an update this week because we've had an interesting election in Andalucia, where the new "right wing populist party" Vox had taken seats in an election for the first time in its history. I'll probably get that done tomorrow.
Vox in particular is a party I've avoided talking for quite some time, as is a bit of a divisive topic between the espanish forums and /pol/ communities.
It was formed fairly recently, 5 years ago by Santiago Abascal, a member of the mainstream right wing party (a career politician). It a following fairly quickly due to smart desitions in social media and a bit of help of the media demonizing them.
And as of right now is in all televisions where pretty much everyone is demonizing them as "far right extremist" and calling them fascist and followers of Franco.
In my opinion, their program is a mixed bag, with some nice options such as forbidding a migrant from ever adquiring legal status if it entered illegally, to the "is nice, but you're never going to get that" in the case of Gibraltar, to missing content such as "we will create laws against illegal occupation and usury", where then they go on explaining how the laws against illegal occupation will go without mentioning usury at all, retrive our judicial sovereignty (but not economic one). Also, they do not include any labor reforms in the entire program.
In short, they're nice but they do not go nowhere near far enought against the European union, and there are many questions regarding many of their stances.
And funnily enought, we have actual right wing anti-european parties that advicate retrieving national sovereignty in the economic department (which I'm not voting for, because replacing the euro with a new currency so we can remove all taxes and print more money each month to cover all expenses is fucking retarded).
Since this is the first time they actually got in an elected position of any kind, I'll be watching their behaviour in a sort of "trial by fire" fashion, but without any prior observation, I'm going to with controlled opposition, but I'm probably still going to vote for them because controlled opposition is better than suicide.Post too long.
