Following the rejection by the Parliament of the national budget for 2019 proposed by the socialiat government of Pedro Sanchez, the President called snap election on 28 April. Hot on the campaign trail already, the leftist parties inisist on "dialogue" with separatist Catalonia as the only "commonsensical" solution to the escalating Catalan secessionism while the conservatives vow to "defend Spain from its enemies" by implementing indefinitely the harsh Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution. On another plane, the left vows to recover the debilitated welfare state system while the right seeks to implement a liberal economic model.
