PODEMOS have topped recent polls and are now the leading party claiming 27,7% of votes while the PSOE stand at 26,2%.
The Metroscopia poll for EL PAÍS places the PP at 20,7% with the two former parties blaming the seemingly never-ending corruption scandals for Podemos’ success.
Although Podemos has been anti-corruption from the start the PSOE and PP seem to only now be realising the extent of the public’s discontent and believe they can reclaim their leads by taking a strong anti-corruption stance themselves.
Podemos has voted through Pablo Iglesias’ and his team’s political model which received 80% of voters’ support.
Their final Citizens’ Assembly will be taking place between November 10 and 14 which is when the party’s cabinet will be voted in and their official leader – thought to be Pablo Iglesias – will be elected.
