Spanish Political Deadlock Update

Pedro Sanchez

Pedro Sánchez says he trusts that the current political deadlock will be resolved without the need for a repeat general election. Speaking at the weekend, the PSOE leader and acting prime minister, earnestly defended a “third way” that would also bypass the option of a coalition with the leftist Unidas Podemos.
Sánchez, who’ll present his latest proposal tomorrow in Madrid, insists that there is still time before September 23 to negotiate the essential points of a common progressive program, and notes that his administrations have always included independent ministers with a proven track record.
