Vox (Spain)

Vox is a Spanish political party. It takes strongly conservative, right-wing populist, and Euroskeptic positions on issues.[1][2] The party also is pro-life.[3] To the annoyance of left-wing parties, Vox has celebrated the Reconquista, when Christian Spaniards reconquered Spain from the Muslims.[4] Like other conservative and right-wing populist European parties, Vox has been falsely labeled "far-right" by the Left and the media.[5]

In December 2018, Vox entered the parliament of Andalusia, the first time a Euroskeptic and right-wing populist party won seats in the country.[3][6] Because of this victory, it automatically gained a seat in the Spanish Senate.[7]
