Spain's indignant achieve transparency laws

The Andalusian regional parliament passed a series of regulations aimed at ensuring greater transparency on Thursday that were proposed by the movement of the "indignant" which emerged from the protests of May 15. But the vote demonstrated that the conservatives still haven't learned their lesson in true democracy, writes the left-leaning daily Público: "The MPs may not have completed all the exercises set for them by the May 15th Movement, but at least they did some of them. Like eager pupils bent on passing the new subject 'The Quality of Democracy', the leftist pupils wrote their exam yesterday. And even if they didn't obtain the top grade they are not far off a 'B'. Meanwhile their classmates on the right disrupted the class with their interruptions, insults and lies and refused to write the sentence 'I may hold only one office'. As so often, the rowdies of the class sabotaged the exam just because they didn't like a couple of the exercises. It won't be an easy task to make decent pupils of them."
