EurActiv.com - Spain ready for a liberal alternative, says EU poll candidate | EU - European Information on EU Elections 09

After over fifteen years of a "fierce and brutal two party-system," Spain is ready for a third moderating force to inject some reasonable and sensible discourse into Spanish politics, redress abstentionism and allow the country to embark on a new economic deal, said Sean O'Curneen, the Centro Democratico Liberal's top candidate, in an interview with EurActiv.

Launched in September 2008 with the intention of grabbing seats in the European elections, CLO is trying to portray itself as a centrist political party which will inject greater plurality into Spanish politics and re-engage people in political life. 

Stemming from the Centro Democratico e Social of Manuel Alonso, the party is well represented in local councils across the country, but has no representatives in the Spanish parliament yet.
