The former Vice President of the Government Pablo Iglesias He has achieved an associate professorship in the Faculty of Political Science and Sociology of the Complutense University of Madrid, which means his return to teaching, which he put on hold when he began his path in politics in 2014, when he founded Podemos.
This is the third teaching position to which he aspired and for which he has obtained the best qualification among the applicants, with a score of 7.5. It deals with ‘Analysis of political and electoral behavior’ and ‘Theory and practice of democracies’, subjects that correspond to the Department of Political Science and Administration, where Iglesias will meet the also founder of Podemos and friend Juan Carlos Purse.
Iglesias achieves his purpose after two frustrated attempts. The first, in October, when he failed the test to teach at the Faculty of Information Sciences. The square was left in the hands of the journalist from Televisión Española Sandra Daviu. The second, this same month, when the court did not even evaluate his candidacy to enter the Faculty of Political Science, something that the affected person considered “extremely strange.”
The third teaching position that I applied for at the Complutense has already come out. On this occasion, the commission has not excluded me and has rated me as the best candidate based on curricular merits. My greatest dream has always been to be a teacher https://t.co/NECbi810lM

Iglesias knows the university well. He is a doctor in Political Science from the Complutense, where he taught from 2008 until he took office as MEP in 2014. Graduated in Law and Political Science, he expanded his training with a Master’s in Humanities from Carlos III and another in Communication from the European Graduate School.
Since he left politics, in 2021 after failing in his attempt to remove Puerta del Sol from Isabel Diaz Ayuso, he joined a research group at the Open University of Catalonia and began to collaborate in various media. He also presents a podcast called ‘La base’ and has just announced the creation of a television, Canal Red.

The fact that Iglesias does not hold political office does not mean that he does not have influence precisely from these speakers in which he works or directs. In recent days he is pointing out with his statements the deep differences within United We Can in the Government and in the face of the general elections, accusing the vice president Yolanda Diaz not to defend Irene Montero of the attacks due to the lowering of sentences for sexual offenders as a result of the entry into force of the so-called ‘only yes is yes’ law.
