List Of Political Parties In Spain
This article lists political parties in Spain.
Spain has a multi-party system at both the national and regional level. Nationally there are two dominant political parties, (the left-leaning PSOE and right-wing PP) which make it extremely difficult for any other formation or coalition to achieve an electoral majority in the bicameral Cortes Generales (consisting of both the national Congress of Deputies and regional representation in the Senate).
Regional parties can be strong in autonomous communities like Catalonia and the Basque Country and are often essential for national government coalitions.
