A REGIONAL Podemos MP has died at the age of just 55, only eight months after he was elected to Parliament.
José Luis Serrano was joint spokesman and leader of the left-wing independent party, which at national level is now the third-largest political force, having gained his seat in Andalucía's regional government after the March 22 elections.
A university professor and head of the faculty of law philosophy in Granada since 1982, Serrano has written five novels.
He passed away in Granada's La Inmaculada Clinic this week from terminal cancer.
