Madrid: Spain, which returned to democracy five decades ago with the death of General Franco, is again in a state of power-sharing. m. The Spanish people have voted in an election that will bring down the socialist government led by Pedro Sánchez. The indication is that the People’s Party led by Alberto Nunez Feijoo will win.
They will have to cooperate with Santiago Abascal’s extreme right-wing party ‘Voxu’ to govern. Thus, a far-right party may participate in governing the state for the first time since the end of Francisco Franco’s dictatorship in the 1970s. Voting started at nine in the morning local time and lasted till eight at night. Voter surveys will be released after voting ends.
It is indicated that public opinion will vote strongly against Sanchez, who has been ruling the state since 2018. There were protests against the polls which were held while the state was burning in the heat. Sanchez announced the state election two months ago after his party suffered a massive defeat in the local elections. Opinion polls say that no one has won a majority this time.
