In Spain, at the Autonomous Community level, there are various experiences of coalition governments, yet the possibility of this structure on a national level remains unprecedented and provokes certain precaution and suspicion. The appearance of new parties has resulted in a wider diversity in Parliament, which brings Spain closer to European contexts characterised by multiparty systems such as Germany or Italy, where different types of coalitions are presently in government. Beyond the ideological differences, this issue also forces Spaniards to rethink the coincidence of the political parties in relation to basic issues and the profiling of their leaderships.

This begs the question: what is the difference between a post-electoral pact and a coalition government? What consequences of governance could a coalition between opposing parties bring? What are the difficulties of the adoption of this form of government in Spain? What have been the results in the countries surrounding us? This will be among the questions that will be addressed during the session presented by our guests Ignacio Urquizu, Lecturer in Sociology at the Universidad Complutense of Madrid and a Member of Parliament for Teruel (PSOE), and Pedro Riera, Lecturer in Political Science at the Universidad Carlos III of Madrid.

A debate format in which, once a month, on a Monday at 7:30 pm, leading experts analyse important issues that make up today’s social reality with the journalists Antonio San José and Íñigo Alfonso.

New approaches to university education, the future of the press in Spain, the future of the Autonomous Regions in Spain, electoral reform, robots and industry, climate change, political leadership during the Spanish democracy, pharmaceutical industry and health, the Arab world, the solutions to the crisis, independence movements, globalisation, the future of Europe, anti-system movements, aging, virus of the new Millennium and the future of the monarchies in the world have been several of the issues involved.

The presenters put some of the audience’s questions to the guests. Please send your suggestions to:
