On December 16, AEGEE-Europe deployed a 25-member EOM to monitor the Spanish General Elections of 20 December 2015, with a special focus on youth participation. Headquartered in Madrid, observer teams were deployed to Alicante, Barcelona, Bilbao, Madrid, Seville, Valencia, and Vigo.

The AEGEE EOM was composed of youth from Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States. All observers have been trained according to the methodology of the OSCE/ODIHR and have been conducting research on Spain’s political and electoral climate for the previous six weeks.

The AEGEE EOM to Spain is the 12th EOM since the beginning of AEGEE Election Observation in May 2014. The elections of 20 December were the second monitored by AEGEE Election Observation in Spain this year, after Catalonia’s Parliamentary elections of 27 September 2015.
