IN a dramatic move, Rajoy has revealed the king has not asked him to form a government.

The favoured candidate to form a government is PSOE leader Pedro Sanchez.

President of the congress Patxi Lopez has announced: “The King has asked Pedro Sanchez to form a government.”

Sanchez has asked for three to four weeks to form a coalition government.

Meanwhile, Rajoy has commented: “There are three options: ours (PP, PSOE and Ciudadanos), PSOE and ‘the radicals’ (Podemos and independent parties) which I don’t think is good for Spain and new elections which is not something we want.”
