SPAIN’S four main left-wing political parties are holding coalition talks in Madrid’s Congress.
Delegates from the Socialist PSOE, Podemos, Compromis and IU are discussing the investiture of PSOE leader Pedro Sanchez.
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.
