Pedro Sanchez walks away from coalition talks as political breakdown raises concern of repeat election in Spain

TARGET: Pedro Sanchez heavily criticised in the adverts

SPAIN’s caretaker prime minister has called an end to power-sharing talks and ratcheted up the risk of a fresh election in the autumn.

Pedro Sanchez has accused the Podemos leader Pablo Iglesias of acting in bad faith and called off talks three months after his PSEO party won April’s election.

A repeat election would plunge Spain’s young democracy into an unprecedented crisis as it would be the fourth in as many years.

Sanchez has said the two parties policy differences were too large to accommodate a coalition.

Podemos official Pablo Echenique said: “We were surprised to hear that the prime minister said that negotiations had collapsed. For our part, this is not the case.”
