Elections in Galicia and the Basque Country
(Esta entrada está disponible también en español.)

The self-governing communities of Galicia and the Basque Country (Euskadi), located in northwestern and northern Spain, respectively, go to the polls on Sunday, March 1st, 2009, to elect their devolved legislatures. The results of autonomic elections held in Galicia from 1981 to 2009 and in Euskadi from 1980 to 2009, as well as an overview of the Galician and Basque proportional representation electoral systems are now available in Elections to the Galician Parliament and Elections to the Basque Parliament.

The 2009 Basque Parliament election will be the first autonomic poll in which radical nationalist parties linked to the ETA terrorist group won't participate. I have written a commentary on the topic for the Hotline section of JURIST, the University of Pittsburgh School of Law blog, under Spain's ban on radical nationalist Basque parties adds unpredictability to March election.

Finally, the list of Spain election resources now includes a link to the Elections to the Galician Parliament 2009 official website, available in Galician and Spanish.

Elecciones en Galicia y el País Vasco
(This posting is also available in English.)

Las comunidades autónomas de Galicia y el País Vasco (Euskadi), situadas en el noroeste y el norte de España, respectivamente, acuden a las urnas el domingo, 1ro de marzo de 2009 para elegir sus legislaturas autonómicas. Los resultados de las elecciones autonómicas celebradas en Galicia de 1981 a 2009 y en Euskadi de 1980 a 2009, así como una breve exposición de los sistemas electorales de representación proporcional gallego y vasco están ahora disponibles en Elecciones al Parlamento de Galicia y Elecciones al Parlamento Vasco.

Las elecciones al Parlamento Vasco de 2009 serán la primera consulta autonómica en la cual no participarán partidos nacionalistas radicales vinculados al grupo terrorista ETA. He redactado un comentario en inglés sobre este asunto para la sección Hotline de JURIST, el blog de la Escuela de Derecho de la Universidad de Pittsburgh, bajo Spain's ban on radical nationalist Basque parties adds unpredictability to March election.

Finalmente, la lista de recursos electorales de España incluye ahora un enlace a la web oficial de las Elecciones al Parlamento de Galicia 2009, disponible en gallego y español.

On Latvian parliamentary elections, past and future
Is Latvia still headed for an early election?, on Global Economy Matters (and cross-posted on Latvia Economy Watch and Baltic Economy Watch) reviews current political developments in the Baltic republic, where the four-party coalition government of Prime Minister Ivars Godmanis prevailed today in a parliamentary vote of confidence.

Meanwhile, Part I of Elections to the Latvian Saeima (Parliament) is now available, with an overview of Latvia's proportional representation system and the results of the 1998, 2002 and 2006 parliamentary elections; I also reviewed Latvian politics two years ago in 2006 Parliamentary Elections in Latvia.
