The results of October 21 election for the parliament of Euskadi, the
Basque autonomous community within the Spanish state, are expected to
confirm the rising popularity of the left nationalist coalition, Euskal
Herria Bildu (EH Bildu--Basque Country Assembly).

Regardless of whether EH Bildu tops the vote or is pipped by the
conservative Basque Nationalist Party (PNV), progressive politics in
Euskadi seems certain to record its best ever result.
