Spain held an election last weekend. The Socialists were the big winners, but they fell short of majority (29%). Keith Walker speaks with DW's Spain correspondent, Guy Hedgecoe, who explains what happens next.
The Socialists may have won the general election, but the real story is the rise of the far-right nationalist Vox party as it enters the Spanish parliament, says Bernd Riegert.
Four Catalan lawmakers must now choose between leaving their seats in parliament empty or resigning. In a fractious assembly, the ruling could work in the favor of acting Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez.
In a vote that saw one of the highest turnouts in recent years, Spain's ruling Socialists have won the most seats but fell well short of a majority. The far-right Vox party will enter parliament for the first time.
Socialist Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez could win re-election on April 28. But a left-wing government is far from certain, with neither left nor right wing blocs on track to easily reach a majority.
