Zapatero's Midnight Party

As with all Spanish parties, political parties run late into the night, and no less for Spain's longest standing party, the incumbent Socialists (PSOE). Tonight Spain's General Election campaign officially kicked off and the Prime Minister and candidate for relection, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, celebrated the moment with a heated and emotional rally at Madrid's main convention centre. The speech began at midnight following a unique and innovative musical show. Here are some first hand photos of the event.
