English translation:ETA stays ETA;
Explanation:
Ibarretxe (proper name)

PNV (Basque Nationalist Party)

gobierno vasco = Basque autonomous government

gobierno de Madrid = Spanish government

PP (Popular Party)
PSOE (Socialist Workers Party of Spain)

That's the way I've always done it, leaving the initials and translating what they stand for in parentheses.
