THE session to vote in Spain’s new leader will be held on March 2 and 3.
The Socialist PSOE secretary general Pedro Sanchez has been charged with forming a new government following the general election on December 20.
He hopes to have gained enough support from other parties before the investiture debate session starts on March 2.
The vote will be then be held on March 3.
If he fails to gather enough support to form a government, Spaniards will go to the polls again on June 26.
The PSOE won 90 seats at December’s election behind Mariano Rajoy’s PP, who won 123.
Rajoy turned down the opportunity to form a government at the first investiture session citing a lack of support from other parties.
