In Spain, the procedure for forming a Government has begun, the chances of the right-wing parties getting support are small
The leader of Spain's main right-wing opposition People's Party, Alberto Núñez Feijo, began a speech in Parliament today as part of the procedure to win support to form a government after no party won a majority in Spain's July elections.
Feijo's People's Party won the most seats in the July election, but has so far failed to muster enough votes to win a parliamentary majority, although it has the support of the far-right Vox party. The debate will begin today, while the vote needed for Feijo to win an absolute majority will take place tomorrow.
Another vote will be held on Friday, in which Feijo needs a simple majority. If, as expected, Feijo fails to win support, Acting Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez, who leads Spain's Socialist Workers Party, will have two months from Wednesday to make his proposal before Parliament is dissolved and to call new elections.
