FORMER prime minister Felipe Gonzalez has called on Spain’s political leaders to resign if there is a third general election.

Socialist Gonzalez, who was Spain’s longest-serving PM, also appeared to urge PSOE leader Pedro Sanchez to abstain in any vote on a new government.

“If parties can’t form a government they should not impede others from doing so,” he insisted.

Sanchez and his 85 delegates voted against Mariano Rajoy when the PP leader held a vote on forming a new government earlier this month.
