Dr. Filippa Chatzistavrou, Research Fellow at ELIAMEP, comments on the results of the Spanish Elections 2019 on the TV Show “Proini Vardia”.

According to Dr. Chatzistavrou: “In relation to the issue of the rise of the extreme right in Europe after 2008, Spain has always been referred to as the “counter-model” because it was the only country that had not experienced the rise of a far-right, neo-fascist or ethnic-conservative party. After these elections, Spain has ceased to be the counter-model, the euro-friendly country, which, after the end of Franco, created a stable constitution based on democratic parties where the Spanish Right fully embraced the far- right elements “.
