Watch the moment a rat disrupts parliament in Andalusia
Watch a rat cross the Andalusian parquet floor, throwing politicians into their chairs or running.
A rat caused a stir in the Andalusian parliament on July 21 as politicians were about to vote to make Susana Diaz, the former PSOE leader in Andalusia, a senator.
Speaker of Parliament Marta Bosquet brought her hand to her mouth in surprise as the rodent made its way straight to where Vox representatives sit.
Bosquet, a member of the Cuidadanos, called for calm the panicked politicians as they jumped into their seats and Ana Mulas, Vox, dressed in gray, walked straight for the door.
The rat looked just as pissed off as the politicians and as soon as he could find a way out he ran, to the cheers of parliamentarians.
The Parliament of Andalusia is held at the Palacio de San Telmo in Seville. Work began on the imposing building in 1682 and it first served as a university for mariners.
It was renovated in 1991 and again in 2005.
La Junta de Andalucia is led by a sometimes wobbly coalition of Partido Popular (PP), Ciudadanos and Vox and is led by PP de la Junta President Juanma Moreno. Juan Marin des Ciudadanos is its vice-president. This is the first time that the center-right has led the regional government in 36 years when the PSOE has held a monopoly of power in Andalusia since the end of the Franco era.
The new Senator Susana Diaz led the party to its historic loss in December 2018. The next regional elections must take place before January 1, 2023.
