HE may be a newcomer to politics but he is no spring chicken.

Retired Spanish doctor Moises Broggi is setting his eyes on the senate at the ripe old age of 103.

The centenarian – who will set a new age record for a Spanish senator should he win a seat on November 20 – is standing in Barcelona as an independent for a coalition led by the Catalan Republican Left (ERC) party.

“The party nominated me,” explained the retired doctor, who served as a field surgeon for the international brigades in the Spanish civil war.
