FT, 9 / 10 noviembre 2015. How the Catalonia vote will ramp up tensions with Madrid.
“¿Quién saldrá ganando del choque y tensiones en curso?”
“Es difícil pensar que la escalada en curso no favorece a Rajoy”.
“La recuperación económica, el enfrentamiento y el callejón sin salida actuales son cartas triunfantes”.
“Con rivales jóvenes y sin experiencia, la agravación de la crisis, el gobierno de Rajoy puede ser apreciado por los electores.”
FT, 9 / 10 noviembre 2015.
Who might emerge victorious from the current stand-off?
In political terms, it is hard not to conclude that the escalating tensions play into the hands of Mr Rajoy first and foremost. Spain’s prime minister faces a general election on December 20, and sees the Catalan stand-off (along with Spain’s economic recovery) as his trump cards. He is hoping that mainstream voters outside Catalonia will reward him for his resolute defence of Spanish unity. And there is another thing: in December Mr Rajoy will be challenged by young and largely inexperienced candidates, mostly in their 30s and early 40s. With political tensions sharply on the rise, his decades of experience in government may come to be appreciated after all.
