Right wins Spanish elections, but falls short of majority

Madrid, Jul 23 (EFE).- The conservative Popular Party won the largest share of votes in Sunday’s Spanish general elections, but even an alliance with the far-right Vox will not be enough for a majority in parliament.

With 97 percent of the vote tabulated, the PP is on track for 136 seats in the lower house of parliament, while Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez’s Socialists will have 122.

Vox will have 33 and the leftist Sumar, the junior partner in the current government, will have 31. It takes 176 seats to form a stable government.
