Dr Lasse Thomassen, Podemos find itself caught between the battle lines of Spanish politics
“Podemos has shaken up Spanish politics in ways unimaginable when it was created in early 2014,” writes Dr
Lasse Thomassen in The Conversation. “Other political parties and the media have been forced to adjust to the populist, left-wing Podemos as it became an established part of Spanish politics. However, this has created challenges for the party itself. Initially formulated as an assault against the establishment, Podemos is now part of the political system that it set out to fight,” he continues.
