In the unstable political environment in Spain that followed Franco's death and the narrow victory of Adolfo Suárez's UCD party in the 1977 general election, it became obvious that a great deal of cross-party cooperation would be needed if progress was to be made. The result was the Pactos de la Moncloa, named after the prime minister's official residence, where the pacts were signed in October 1977. They were designed to bring together all political groups in a spirit of consensus in order to push through vital legislation, specifically the Constitution, but also budgets and regional policies.
