Selin ATAY-TDO- In Spain, which will hold a general election for the fourth time in four years, many voters has expressed their opinion not to go to the polls to protest frequency of the election. Because of the public's frustration and resentment at being constantly called to the polls, forming a government after the general election is expected to become more difficult.
The leader of the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE), Pedro Sanchez, came out first in the polls for the first time since 2008, as the Populist Party (PP) became embroiled in corruption. However, other parties did not support forming a coalition government with PSOE when PSOE did not have enough MPs to form a government alone. For this reason, Sanchez declared an early election for November 10.
To address the parliamentary deadlock, some politicians are calling for constitutional reform, but society wants politicians to change rather than election rules. “These politicians don't represent me. Instead of imposing a solution on the people, politicians should listen to the people and seek a solution."one Spain voter said.
Antonio Garamendi, Secretary General of the Spanish Confederation of Business Entities (CEOE), which represents the country's business community, said: "the fact that there will be re-election is a general failure that will affect employment and investment."
Another voter criticized the frequency of the election by saying “The money to go to another election should actually have been spent on hospitals, schools. But it is clear that MPs are not worried about anything other than their own seats and salaries,"
