The political experts have conceptualized the elections of 1977 as “foundational”, which means that they define the end of an authoritarian regime and they give way to a democratic regime. However, they do not usually speak of original sin: elections managed by the heirs of the Franco regime, without democratic and official data.The passage of time, the academic rigor and the political honesty should not make us forget that it was the electoral result— against the odds— which turned the Cortes into constituents and allowed Catalonia to regain self-government with the restoration of the provisional Government. While the previous “Movimiento” secretary won the elections in Spain, in Catalonia the victory was of the leftist and pro-Catalan parties. The Catalan breakup was political and cultural before being electoral. At least since Franco's death, the democratic culture had conquered hegemony in the streets, in protests and in major festivals. This books wants to vindicate the reasons and emotions of those elections that people transformed into a huge democratic party.
