The Party for the Renaissance and Union of Spain (PRUNE) is the first Islam-orientated political party in Spain. The Party was founded in Granada and party organizers are trying to present candidacies in three cities (Granada, Barcelona and Oviedo) for the next local elections in 2011. The article is an interview with Mustafá Bakkach El Aamrani, the president of PRUNE. In the interview, he explains the main points of their political program. He defines PRUNE as a party with an “Islamic orientation” much like the way “the Popular Party (PP) has a Christian orientation”. “This is different from an Islamic party”, Mustafá Bakkach adds. The PRUNE was legalized in July 2009. The party identifies itself as a conservative party which aspires to represent all the minorities of Spain.
