The Wider Image: Spain: lawmakers in limbo
Miguel Vila, 32, a former cameraman and a new lawmaker of Podemos (We Can) party, poses for a photograph in front of the Spanish parliament in Madrid, Spain January 27, 2016. "I never thought I would become an MP until [party leader] Pablo Iglesias told me he counted on me to be part of his team for the elections. A team called to gain the country to give it back to the people. I felt very honoured when he told me so, but I would be lying if I didn’t admit that I also felt giddy. It was about taking a huge responsibility with the country and I didn't know if I was up to it. My shock at becoming a politician didn't last long, just until I remembered the almost six years I spent working as a television cameraman in parliament, seeing how politicians of the old two-party system were working with their backs turned to the people, completely cut off from the real problems of the country. At this point I thought that any person could become a politician and do it better by being closer to the people," he said. REUTERS/Andrea Comas SEARCH "LAWMAKER COMAS" FOR THIS STORY.
