United Left (Spain)

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

United Left (Spanish: Izquierda Unida [iθˈkjeɾða uˈniða], IU) is a political coalition that was created in 1986, bringing together several left-wing political organizations.[1]

IU was founded as an electoral coalition of seven parties, but the Communist Party of Spain (PCE) is the only remaining member of the IU at the national level.[1] It is currently part of Unidas Podemos.
