Pedro Sánchez does not plan to repeat elections after the general elections of #23Jul

The Socialist Party (PSOE), a party led by Pedro Sánchez, obtained second place in the elections on Sunday, July 23 with 122 seats, an insufficient result to govern. However, the Socialists won two more seats in these elections than in the general elections in November


The acting president of the Spanish Government and leader of the Socialist Party (PSOE), Pedro Sánchez, does not anticipate a repeat election after the general elections on Sunday, July 23, since “this democracy will find the formula for governability,” reported EFE.

Sources from the Socialist Executive meeting this Monday the 24th to analyze the results of the elections told the agency that this is Sánchez’s intention.

The PSOE obtained the second position in the elections with 122 seats, an insufficient result to govern, so, in addition to the votes of the left-wing coalition Sumar and those of the Catalan independentistas of ERC and Basques (Bildu and PNV), its re-election would depend on the positioning of the seven seats of the Catalan secessionists of Junts.

This formation is led by the former president of the regional government of Catalonia Carles Puigdemont, a fugitive from Spanish Justice and resident in Brussels.

However, the Socialists won two more seats in these elections than in the general elections in November.

According to the sources, Sánchez commented at the meeting that Spain “has said no to involution and setbacks”, in reference to the conservative Popular Party (PP), winner of the elections with 133 deputies, and the far-right formation Vox (33).

The two right-wing parties do not have a sufficient majority to govern either, which is why the socialist leader stressed that the PSOE is today “a reference in Europe and in the world.”

Alberto Núñez Feijóo was the winner of the elections according to the provisional count in Spain, but far from the majority he wanted and from the one he would need to join Vox.
