Spain's Podemos is continuing to back its fellow radical anti-austerity party, Greece's ruling Syriza, despite leader Alexis Tsipras being forced into accepting further budget cuts in return for another international bailout.
Nacho Alvarez, secretary of the economy for Spain's Podemos party told CNBC that the party still supported its Greek ally.
"Of course we continue to support Syriza. Syriza did a great effort to make everyone in Europe understand the need for change and the need to stop austerity and we continue to support Syriza."
"What we have learned, the situation in Spain and Greece is very different. Greece did not have any fiscal room for maneuver but the situation in Spain for a post-austerity situation is very different. We have more room for fiscal stimulus and for different negotiations with European institutions so we cannot compare both situations."
