Election Fever


General Elections are scheduled to be held on March 9th for the Spanish parliament in Madrid. 350 diputados will be elected into the Congreso (the Lower House), plus 208 seats are up for grabs in the Senado (the Upper House).

Only during the last two weeks, the political parties are allowed to campaign for their programmes, i. e. now.

Two days ago, during market day, the parties distributed their leaflets and some silly little gimmicks to the populace of Felanitx. Us foreigners have no vote, this time, irrespective as to our status of Residencia. We are only eligible to vote during the local Municipal elections (they were held last year), and during the elections for the European parliament (coming up next year, I think).

The party in government at the moment, Spain’s PSOE, will have a mítin (election rally) tonight in the Palma Arena with the participation of Prime Minister, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero. Opinion polls record a small advantage for the PSOE party, at the moment, when asking about voting intentions.

The photo was taken in Felanitx, Mallorca, Spain. The date: February 24th, 2008. The time was 11:34:26.
