Geroa Bai (Basque: Yes to the Future) is a regional political coalition in the Navarre constituency, created for the 2011 election to the Cortes Generales. It includes the Basque Nationalist Party (EAJ-PNV), Atarrabia Taldea, and the Zabaltzen partnership. These groups had shared the former coalition Nafarroa Bai, along with Eusko Alkartasuna and Aralar (which entered the coalition Amaiur), and Batzarre.

History[edit]

Geroa Bai elected one representative to the Congress of Deputies in the general elections held in 2011 (Uxue Barkos, who had been the representative of Nafarroa Bai in her previous term).[1] Geroa Bai holds 9 seats in the much fragmented Parliament of Navarre since 2015. Since July 2015, Uxue Barkos (Geroa Bai) presides the regional government of Navarre relying also on EH Bildu, Podemos and Izquierda-Ezkerra.
