Rajoy's first attempt has failed, second one on Friday.
If he does not secure the necessary support at the investiture vote this week, there will be two months to either form a government or hold new elections

Should King Felipe VI follow the example of Albert II in Belgium and take a more proactive role now to try to avoid a third election ? Or is the position of the monarchy in Spain too fragile for the King to serve as an effective mediator between the different political parties ?

The PP/Ciudadanos/Coalición Canaria group is only six votes short of an overall majority. It doesn't seem reasonable that a new election should be held. Quite frankly, the leftist and nationalist parties are just playing (bad) politics.

the AP news item on this: https://www.yahoo.com/news/spains-ki...01.html?ref=gs

To sum up how the AP is reporting his position: Compromise and move forward.

I'd ask Forum members from Europe how this is being interpreted regionally?

Spain's king coaxes politicians to end 9-month gov't limbo | Daily Mail Online

Felipe said he will not call the political leaders for consultation, but to give them time to discuss (as he already did after Sanchez' failed investiture). He also asked for dialogue and compromise.

Without an agreement between the political leaders until October 31st, Felipe is going to call new election on Christmas day.

Felipe will strictly follow his role according to the constitution what is a mediator but not to take active role in forming a government.

Socialist Party (PSOE) has just voted to abstain on Rajoy investidure so he can govern in minority.

This most likely means the King will appoint Rajoy as candidate after his round of consultations this week and he will be probably elected in one-two weeks, just at the end of the term that forces to call for new elections.

Spain's Socialists vote to allow Rajoy minority government - BBC News

The bright side is we won't have to vote (third time in a year) on Christmas Day (!!!!!), and obviously that there will be a government at last. The worst part is everything else, IMO of course

That was the wisest thing to do for PSOE (Labour). Polls showed that new elections would only benefit PP (Conservatives) again and hold the risk that Podemos will bypass the PSOE as the largest party on the left.

Yes, indeed. But the outcome is not a good one for them either. I'm afraid they have just given the leadership of the left to Ps. They are going through the same road that PASOK in Greece. It was a lose-lose situation for them if there ever was one.

The only thing they have won is a four-year term to rebuild themselves and recover their voters, because new elections in December would have been a complete debacle for them. Much better to stay with the number of seats they already have.

Well that's some good news and hopefully Spain will have a new government soon and not another election.

Same in Germany with the SPD. They have been in decline for years, I am sure it will be the same for PSOE, their members/voters will leave and other parties will benefit. This is the end of the 2 party system as Spain has known it.
