Good that the State visit to Morocco has already started. Otherwise it would perhaps have been postponed another time.

And we might not see another State Visit for some time too!

Spain is again facing a complicated situation. Pedro Sanchez has seen his budget proposal be rejected and so there will be elections again.
Spain is divided and the parties do not understand each other. I venture to say that the only thing that still unites Spain is the King and the monarchy, otherwise it would be even worse.
I am sorry that these first years of Philip VI's reign are so complicated.

Difficult times ahead for King Felipe: in today's election, no single party is expected to gain a majority, which means five parties from across the political spectrum have a real chance of sharing power in the next government.

Let's wait and see the final results of the election first. I don't think the mainstream center-right parties will be happy to go into government with Vox and the Socialists are likely to have a sizeable plurality. They might end up with a Socialist minority government again with some confidence and supply agreement with Podemos and the nationalists.

Nobody really knows what is going to happen, no one trusts the polls because the level of undecided is very high and in the last elections they have failed.

PSOE had support to kick out the PP from the government, but to form a government, Podemos and the independentist will demand a very high price and reaching agreements will be difficult. The more independence parties they need, the worse.

The center-right could repeat the pact of Andalucia with PP-Cs-VOX ... but Vox is a mystery and the more seats they have, the harder it will be to reach agreements.

It seems that the preferred agreement by the economic powers that want stability is PSOE-Cs, but it seems unlikely that they can get a majority and the relationship between their leaders is not good.

On May 26 there are European elections, but also local and in several regions ... so the pacts will probably not be closed until they pass.

I think there are strong possibilities that the right to rule with a coalition between the PP, Vox and Ciudadanos. I do not believe that the PSOE can reach an agreement with Podemos.
But of course it's all unknown and we'll have to wait and see.

At what time will you know who won the election?
According to the latest polls the PSOE won the elections but without an absolute majority. PP came in second.

If the exit polls are right, PSOE + Podemos and PP. + Cs + Vox had approximately the same share of the popular vote, but the seat count is not directly proportional to share of the popular vote in the Spanish system. PP seems to have done poorly, even worse than the last pre-election polls predicted.

Even if we add the Vox seats, the right won’t have enough seats to form a government so it will be probably a PSOE minority government with confidence and supply from Podemos and the separatists. I don’t think Sanchez will go for a coalition government.

Well, the majority would be PSOE and Cs, and probably the best option for the stability of the country... but the interests of the parties and their leaders make it complicated. The appearance of Vox and the electoral system has hurt the PP.

So it seems that the PSOE will be able to govern with Podemos and the abstention of the independentists... it really is bad news for Spain and the Monarchy.

Do you think the monarchy is at risk with the Podemos in the government?

Podemos in the last elections was prudent to attack the Monarchy to attract a more moderate electorate, but now they have reduced their power and must maintain an electorate of extreme left that is republican... in the last two years they have united with the independentists, and their objective is to create a federal Spain and for that the Monarchy is a great obstacle. If they support the government of Sanchez it can be negative for the Monarchy... but if they become part of the government they will try to damage it from the power, which is worse. The PSOE is not going to have it easy, because Podemos and the independentists are going to demand a very high price for their support... and Sánchez has to take into account his more moderate electorate and non-independentist regions, the economic power that wants stability and his partners in Europe.

Probably until the elections of May 26 have passed, there will be no agreements on the government. The government of some regions and large cities will enter into the game of agreements.

As the leader of the party which won the biggest share of the vote, Sanchez will be invited by King Felipe VI to have the first chance at forming a government.

Parliament will be reconvened on May 21st when Sanchez’s leadership will be put to the vote.

If in a first vote Sanchez must win an absolute majority – with at least 176 votes in his favor - to become prime minister but if he fails to do so, then he must only secure a ‘simple majority’ - with more voting for him than against him – to take the role.
