Podemos number two Inigo Errejón led an eight-strong group from Podemos, who have criticised Sanchez’s decision to negotiate with Ciudadanos at the same time as Pablo Iglesias’s party.

The PSOE general secretary will try to form a coalition goverment on March 2 and 3 after accepting King Felipe’s invitation.

Spain has been without a government since December 20 when no party managed to secure an overall majority of seats.
