Monolithic, a Vertical (Top-Down), and Hierarchical Party?
The Podemos ‘convention process’
(consolidating the new party’s structures) which began on September the
15th, ended on Saturday, November the 15th with the election of Pablo
Iglesias as General Secretary. He won 88.7% of the votes cast (96.9%
valid). His list won the 62 posts for the ‘Citizens’ Council’ and 10 for
the Safeguards Commission.
The level of abstention, was however,
also significant: 57% of those registered, larger than the percentage –
45% who abstained during the vote on the overall party documents
(policy, programme and organisation). The proportion of blank (or null)
ballots was also important: 8.5% of votes cast for the General
Secretariat; 5.1% for the Citizen Council and 13% for the ‘guarantees’
Reports Ensemble. (Podemos : un parti monolithique, vertical et hiérarchique ? 22 November).
