Spain: Far-Right Vox Party Makes Gains in Regional Elections

HeadlineDec 04, 2018

In Spain, the far-right Vox party won multiple seats in a regional parliamentary election in Andalusia Sunday—the first successful election for the far right in Spain since the country returned to democracy in the 1970s after the death of military dictator Francisco Franco. Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon threw his support behind Vox earlier this year and has apparently been advising the far-right party. Vox campaigned on an anti-immigrant, anti-abortion platform and has many worried about the rise of far-right political populism in Spain.
