ABSTRACT
The article presents an overview of politics in Spain. Confidence in the Spanish economy and reassurance of markets of its ability to avoid a European Union (EU) bailout arose from the political and economic reforms introduced. Over the next decade, structural political issues expected to be addressed include unemployment, changes in demography and constitutional concerns. The transformation of Spain is a result of the shift to democracy, EU participation and adoption of the euro.
