Andorra. In the parliamentary elections held in April,
the Liberal Conservative PLA lost government power for the
first time in 15 years. The Social Democratic PSD received
14 of the 28 mandates, while the four-party alliance in
which the PLA was included received 11 seats. According to
countryaah, new head of
government became PSD leader Jaume Bartumeu. The Social
Democrats had gone to elections with promises that a low
income tax would be introduced, that banking secrecy would
be loosened and Andorra would be approaching the EU.
In May, the economic cooperation organization OECD
withdrew Andorra from its "black list" of non-cooperative
tax havens. Liechtenstein and Monaco were simultaneously
deleted from the list, which was thus empty.
