Scaring the people with the D’Hondt system

Published in Expansión

Dear reader,

In representative democracies, the people vote for their (supposed) representatives but the final result depends decisively on the small details hidden in the electoral law of the day, the wording of which is never accidental. In this article we will briefly explain the intricacies of the Spanish electoral law (which is usually misunderstood) and analyze by way of example how a center-right Popular Party in Spain is using its complexities to intimidate and deceive the electorate for the campaign for the next April 28th general elections, trying to misleadingly deter people from voting for its center-right wing competitors.
This article will only be published in Spanish.
