Canaries, Tenerife and municipal election results 2015

After yesterday’s elections, the nationalist Coalición Canaria party continues in power in the regional Government, but only just! The CC won 17 seats with the PSOE (socialists) very close behind with 16, the PP (conservatives) with 12, and Podemos – the new Spanish indignado force – 7, better than anyone might have expected.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
