THE Socialist PSOE general secretary Pedro Sanchez has rejected Pablo Iglesias’s demands for ‘exclusive’ dialogue.
Sanchez was speaking after talks with the Podemos leader as Spain’s political parties continue to try to form a government.
Iglesias has called for the PSOE to shut out rival party Ciudadanos from any dialogue about a potential government pact.
But Sanchez is adamant the PSOE would negotiate ‘in plural’.
“There are things that separate us but there is one thing that unites us: that we have to put an end to Mariano Rajoy and the PP’s government,” said Sanchez.
Sanchez has asked for a month to try to form a government after Rajoy turned down the opportunity to do so for a second time.
Spain has been without a government since the general election on December 20 when no party secured an overall majority of 176 seats.
