The Economist reduces the note of Spanish democracy to defective for the political division when it comes to renewing the judiciary

The Global Democracy Index corresponding to the year 2021 published by The Economist magazine places Spain for the first time in the group of nations that have suffered a democratic deterioration and descend in the ranking until they placed among the countries qualified as "defective democracies".

The publication mainly attributes the Spanish descent to a greater weakness in the parameter that refers to the independence of justice, a deterioration caused by the "political divisions" when it comes to renewing the General Council of the Judiciary, the Government Body of Justice in charge of guaranteeing its independence. An organ that, he adds, has expired his term since 2018 and suffers the lack of agreement between the political formations for the appointment of new members. The publication requires that a majority of three fifths in Congress is necessary to proceed to this renewal, something that, as long as it does not occur, mine the credibility of justice and converts it into a vulnerable objective for politicization.

To this, it is added, according to the analysis included in the index, the problems derived from the "Parliamentary Fragmentation", the "Lattany of political scandals" and the "growing nationalism" in Catalonia. All this, he concludes, constitute "risks for governance".

The group of countries considered "full democracies" has been reduced from 13 to 12 by the exit of the same of Spain, which has passed in the global list to be occupied 24 and in which it only includes European countries, 14. The note that is now attributed to Spanish democracy is 7.94 against the 8.12 that received in the previous index.

In this way, Spain is immediately behind France (7,94), but ahead of Portugal (7,82) and Italy (7,68). Once again, they are the Nordic countries - NOREGA, Finland, Sweden, Iceland and Denmark - the best score receive.

The new Democracy Index has immediately provoked a new war between matches. The appearance of the first vice president, Nadia Calviño, before the Mixed Commission for the European Union has been the perfect scenario to make it clear. The Calviño itself has taken advantage of the appointment to qualify the PP policy of "destructive" and "unpatriotic" and urge the first party of opposition to renew and the CGPJ. "His destructive attitude of her," she said, "she is taking us down in international rankings."

It has also been pronounced in this regard, but in a radically opposite direction, the PP. His spokesman at Congress, Cuca Gamarra, has attributed all responsibility for the deterioration to the Government President. "Sánchez what plays the degrades," he said in his Twitter account. "Spain deserves to continue enjoying full democracy that we have all built, Sánchez does not have a problem, he is the problem," he adds.

Citizens, meanwhile, has chosen to point out the two main political forces of the country -PP and PSOE- emphasizing the inability of both to reach agreements.
