Different Bipartisanship

Different Bipartisanship
Speaking of the economic recovery and hardness adopted by the Popular Party did not report on Catalonia votes in the whole of Spain, judging by the Metroscopia poll released today by the country and also by previous surveys of the same series. The PP remains stalled and remains virtual tie with the PSOE, which outperforms popular for the second time this barometer, although the distance between them is limited to 1.2 points.

After more than likely win independence in the Catalan elections, the PP should recognize the mistakes, including not less bet in Catalonia for a candidate with a profile like that of Xavier García Albiol. It Albert Rivera and citizens who unequivocally support the unity of Spain, but with better picture and aspirants take advantage centrist attitudes. Paradoxically, the PSC could get more votes in general that in the regional, according Metroscopia, which, if confirmed in the polls, would strengthen the option of Pedro Sanchez.

But the most significant change is the rebuilding of bipartisanship. The four-dominant forces, prompted by various surveys in late 2014 and early 2015, with PP, PSOE and can practically a handkerchief, and Citizens approaching those in intention to vote quarters. This design gives way to a more bipartisan, somewhat similar to the Transition, which was appealed to "imperfect" mode, and those other legislatures in states without an absolute majority, which the ruling party needed the support of other smaller to complete his training.

What should not go back is the enormous tension that society underwent during the great political polarization experienced in times of Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero as prime minister Mariano Rajoy and the head of the opposition, even though that confrontation was translated in a huge concentration of votes and seats between socialist and popular. Spain needs more seny. The policy of pacts and understanding is better than playing frazzled times much of the previous decade coinciding with the outbreak of the financial crisis, and midwives of the political crisis that crosses Spain today.

The sum of voting intentions toward the two main parties has not yet reached 50% at present, but begins to be clear that on the PP and the PSOE will bear the responsibility of building the future state government on the basis of agreements with smaller and define constitutional and legal reforms as claimed as discussed. None of this will be possible if the total rejection of sectarianism and others returning to the stage. In this direction we must refocus policy to make it possible to reconstruct the state.
