THE Spanish public will head to the polls again on June 26.

King Felipe signed a decree dissolving the current parliament in a bid to break the political stalemate.

The country has been without an elected government since December’s ballot failed to produce a majority.

Months of pact-negotiations between the country’s five main parties – PP, PSOE, Podemos, Ciudadanos and the IU –  have failed to produce a coalition.
