    New Spanish far-right party Respeto will be established on the basis of local right-wing political forces Platform for Catalonia, España 2000 and Party for Freedom.

    MADRID (Sputnik) — Spain’s Tarragona province in Catalonia will host on Saturday a presentation of a new far-right party Respeto standing for the strict anti-immigration policy and the return of internal borders within the European Union.

    The party will be established on the basis of local right-wing political forces Platform for Catalonia, España 2000 and Party for Freedom.

    Respeto’s manifesto also includes advocating for Spain’s exit from NATO, the revision of the bloc’s structure and functions, as well as the country’s boosted centralization to avoid separatism.

    The Spanish party’s anti-migrant and eurosceptic sentiment mirrors the ideology of other far-right groups all over Europe, including France’ National Front and Germany’s Alternative for Germany parties, as the ongoing refugee crisis in Europe has led to the growing popularity of right-wing forces.
