(p.56) Three The Evolving Political Landscape in the Enclaves
Europe or Africa?
Liverpool University Press

This chapter surveys the impact, on both national and local elections, of the relationship between the Spanish community in the enclaves and the central government in Madrid. It examines the emergence of the Muslim community as a political force in local elections as well as the rise of the Grupo Independiente Liberal (GIL) party in both towns and the political crises that it caused. Both phenomena are clear manifestations of the peculiar circumstance of the enclaves within the Spanish state.

Keywords:   Ceuta, Melilla, enclaves, Spain, Spanish government, Muslim community, local elections, national elections, Grupo Independiente Liberal
