Spain: immigrants’ vote
Spanish Socialists are going to grant immigrants the right to vote on the next local elections. This measure will afect to a million and a half immigrants approx., producing effects specially in great cities as Madrid and Barcelona.
There is a doubt about the real sign of this vote, as there are no real studies about the subject.
The man behind this decision is 32-year-old Mohammed Azahaf. He was born in Madrid of Moroccan parents. Since 4 years ago, he has been one of the main supporters of the immigrant vote for local elections. After succeeding in obtaining the approval of the Socialists, now the “challenge is to obtain a political consensus regarding 2011 local elections”.
