SPAIN: Socialists consider next move after elections

Spain’s Socialists are considering their next move after failing to gain a majority in Sunday’s general election.

Pedro Sanchez’s party won the poll with 29% of the vote.

But he must join forces with either left-wing Podemos and other regional parties or the centre right if he decides to form a coalition government.

However, fellow Socialist and Deputy Prime Minister Carmen Calvo said in a radio interview that the party would try to govern on its own.

She said: “We have more than enough to steer this ship along the course it must follow.”
