Podemos Leader Says Pedro Sanchez Wants Another Election in Spain

Pedro

The leader of anti-establishment group Podemos has accused acting Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez of steering Spain toward a fourth general election in as many years, setting the tone for fraught negotiations with less than three weeks to form a government.

Pablo Iglesias said “It seems like Pedro Sanchez wants new elections, I think that’s a mistake.”

He also said another ballot would raise the risk of handing electoral victory to Spain’s three parties on the right, something both Sanchez and Iglesias want to avoid.
