The PP’s Rosa Estaras kicking off the campaign.


Madrid/Palma.—Nearly two-thirds of Spaniards intend to vote in the European Parliament elections later this month, and over half have a favourable impression of the EU, according to a poll released yesterday.
Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s centre right Partido Popular, which has pushed through painful spending cuts to reduce the public deficit, has a narrow lead over the main opposition Socialists, the poll showed.
Over 64 percent of those polled said they would “certainly” or “probably” vote, against over 24 percent who said they would certainly or probably not vote, according to the survey by the Centre for Sociological Studies.
 The rest were undecided or did not answer.
