Ciudadanos is a liberal opposition to the classical political structures of the country – the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party and the conservative Popular Party.

The party advocates political freedom, respect for the individual, and the promotion of private initiative with a minimum of state machinery, declares the need to combat corruption, and supports the unity of Spain. It declares itself a pro-European party, advocating for continued progress in various integration processes. The party advocates the creation of a United States of Europe. It also declares a commitment to respect and complies with the normative framework established by the United Nations, civil liberties, human rights, security, the fight against terrorism, and the protection of the environment.
