6. Spain Socialists reject Rajoy or PP-led government

Spanish Socialist leader Pedro Sanchez has said he will not support a government led by acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy or his conservative Popular Party (PP).

After a brief meeting with the prime minister, Mr Sanchez insisted Spain needed a change of government.

"No to Rajoy means yes to change," he said, adding that he did not want fresh elections.
There is speculation that a left-wing coalition government could be formed - along the lines of neighbouring Portugal. But there are serious divisions between the PSOE and Podemos - and together they would still be short of a majority. They might have to woo small leftist parties in the Basque Country and Catalonia.
