The far-right Vox party won just over 10 percent of the vote in Spain’s general election. Vox will take 24 of the Congress of Deputies’ 350 seats following the Spanish election, held on Sunday (April 28). Its success marks the first time that a far-right party will sit in parliament since the 1975 death of military dictator General Francisco Franco, who had ruled the country since 1939, after leading the Nationalists to victory in the Spanish Civil War. Vox’s leader Abascal regularly speaks out against what he calls “supremacist feminism and gender totalitarianism.” He and his colleagues oppose same-sex marriage, and have proposed introducing a separate form of civil union. Abascal told the Spanish TV channel Antena 3: “We don’t consider a relationship between two men or two women to be a marriage, but it’s a civil union that needs regulating.”
