Mariano Rajoy

MARIANO Rajoy would win another four years as prime minister of Spain if a general election was held today.

A new poll today shows ruling Partido Popular (PP) would hold on to its slim majority ahead of the Socialists (PSOE) followed by market-friendly Ciudadanos.

The PP headed Rajoy would win 26.3% of the vote while the Socialists would take 23.1%, according to the poll carried out by Sociological Research Centre (CIS).

Center-right Ciudadanos would win 20.7% while anti-austerity Podemos party was seen winning 19% of the vote.

Spaniards are expected to return to voting booths again in around 2020.
