SPAIN looks to be heading for yet another election stalemate, according to a new opinion poll.

While a second general election is looking increasingly likely for June, a clear result is extremely unlikely.

It comes after a detailed poll found that the four main parties are all still neck and neck.

In the Metroscopia survey, the PP would gain just 26% of the vote, down from 28.7% secured in December’s election, while the PSOE have risen by 1% to 23%.

While Podemos’ standing has dropped to 17% from 20.7% Ciudadanos has seen a rise in popularity from 14% to 19.5%.

The parties have until May 2 to cobble together a new government or a general election will be called for June.
