Popular Party in Spain Lost the Majority in the Elections

In the elections in Spain the conservative Popular Party (PP) lost its majority, whereas anti-austerity party Podemos and liberal Ciudadanos received quite many votes as compared to the previous elections, BBC reports.

The PP received 28.7% of the votes, the Socialists 22%, Podemos 20.6% and Ciudadanos 13.9%.

“Spain is not going to be the same anymore and we are very happy,” said Podemos leader Pablo Iglesias.

Now the next step of the Popular Party will be starting negotiations to form a coalition, as it has failed to gain the majority of seats.
