¡Ay Carmela

Good results for us lot in Spain.

The big story of the night were the many smaller parties. Newcomers Podemos (We Can), a political movement that emerged from Spain’s indignados, earned 7.9% of the vote, enough for 5 seats.

“We can’t talk about the end, but we can talk about the beginning of the end of bipartisanship. We have to throw them out because they’re the one who have ruined the country,” Podemos leader Pablo Iglesias told journalists on hearing the results.

The leftwing coalition United Left increased their seats from 2 to 6 while the Union, Progress and Democracy went from 1 to 4 seats.
