Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Congratulates PP for winning.

Over 72% participation shows strength of democracy.

PSOE loses with 7 million voters.

Talks of having governed during "the worst economic crisis we've known".

PSOE will lead opposition according to identity, values and convictions, and commitment to the general interest of the country.

Fighting the crisis should not mean a loss of social safety net. Defend universal public services, public and civil rights and equality. Asking that Europe be up to the current situation.

They start the way to recovering power.

There should be an ordinary party congress, as soon as possible.

Thanks all around.

Funny how that's only the case when they're in opposition.

Maybe that means the PSOE is more useful in opposition...

That would be a sad statement about their usefulness when in government.

My take is that parties are better when governing in coalitions. The first legislature of Aznar (PP) was less terrible than expected because their majority wasn't absolute.

We are going to get a very itneresting super majority.

With 10.5 million votes.

A pleasure

IIRC that is still under the threshold for constitutional change with only their votes. It was bad this summer when the PSOE passed the 'austerity' amendment with PP complicity.
