Further anti-democratic reforms in Spain's law

The institutional two parties of Spain have agreed further reforms to the already outrageous Law of Political Parties that will make even more difficult that people with dissident opinions can run for political office in the European kingdom.

Particularly the new reforms would allow to:

1. Declare a party or list illegal already in the electoral campaign even if it fulfilled all the draconian ideological requirements to run.

2. Suspend elected representatives.

Spanish weakness and fear

The Basque Nationalist Left, which has recently insisted that they want to work democratically (originally , in the 1970s and 80s, they did not run but for local offices, considering all the rest of institutions illegitimate) has declared that it's nothing but weakness and fear to democratic confrontation what motivates these repressive laws.
