Spain Conservatives Win Most Votes but Lack Majority
Spain’s ruling conservative Popular Party (PP), led by Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, won the highest number of votes in Sunday’s general election but fell short of outright majority in the 350-seat parliament, newswires reported.
According to exit polls, PP won 122 seats while it needed at least 176 needed for a parliamentary majority.
The Socialist party won 90 seats and two new movements achieved nearly a third of the seats
The newcomers, anti-austerity party Podemos and libera party Ciudadanos, secured 69 and 40 seats, respectively.
This means Rajoy will have to partner either with the Socialists, or the two movements to form a coalition or minority government .
