Spain has an election coming up, and Podemos doesn't want the Spanish voters to think they'll get the same treatment from Brussels.
"Spain is not Greece," said Podemos’s head of economic policy, Nacho Alvarez -- echoing the line used by Spain’s conservative government to reassure voters.

"Greece and Spain are different economies in very different situations which demand different economic strategies," he told a news conference.
