Îles Canaries

The Coalición Canaria (CC) is a significant political force in the Canary Islands, established in February 1993 from a coalition of five diverse Canarian parties, and formalized as a party in May 2005. Its political stance champions regionalism and Canarian nationalism, aligning itself with centrist and liberal ideologies. The CC has played a pivotal role in the governance of the Canary Islands, ruling uninterruptedly from 1993 to 2019 and regaining power in 2023 under Fernando Clavijo Batlle. Despite a brief period out of office, the CC's influence extends beyond the regional to the national level, often leveraging its parliamentary presence to negotiate benefits for the Canary Islands. The party is member of the European Democratic Party at the European level, showcasing its international connections and it will run for the European elections in 2024 with EAJ-PNV and Compromiso por Galicia.
