The Chunta Aragonesista (CHA)[1] is a political party of Aragon (a region of Spain), influenced by socialism, ecologism and pacifism. CHA defends a federal state, greater financial resources for Aragon, and the protection of the environment and hydrological resources of the Ebro Valley. It promotes the use of the Aragonese language.



The National Assembly is the highest organ of representation and decision of the Chunta. It establishes political policies, programs and principles, and chooses the members of the Mayan of Lawsuits, to those of the National Committee and to the president of CHA. A group of delegations from each local organization meets once every three years with the power to modify the statutes and the regulation of the organization.


In the 2000 and 2004 parliamentary elections, CHA won 0.4% of the vote and 1 seat for José Antonio Labordeta, a folk singer in the Zaragoza constituency. It lost the seat in 2008 after Labordeta retired from the congress.

Chunta Aragonesista is a member of the European Free Alliance and the European coalition, Europe of the Peoples.

Nieves Ibeas is the president.

In 2005, the party campaigned against the ratification of the European Constitution.


  1. ^ Rendering the party's name in English is somewhat complicated. As a translation of Aragonese Chunta (Spanish junta), "Council" is fairly widely used and is better than "Junta," with its more specific English connotation. The word Aragonesista, too, presents problems. A more literally accurate (if less common) translation is "Aragonist," i.e. pro-Aragon, not just from Aragon (aragonés).
