Another indecisive result in round 2 of General Election.

Exit polls had shown Podemos Unidos overtaking PSOE, but actual results so far show otherwise.

with 36% counted, projected seats (total seat = 350):

PP - 134
PSOE - 95
Podemos - 69
Ciudadanos - 27

Only way to get the PP out is for the other three parties to coalesce. Otherwise a PP PSOE Coalition.

Ciudadanos look to have got a pasting and may lose 50% of their seats. Lowest turnout in Spanish democratic history at just over 51% at 18.00.

The United Left / Podemos joint platform will replace PSOE as the second party in Spain - and it should be noted that IU/Podemos have shifted significantly to an anti-EU position in the run up to the election.

The electoral system in Spain means Podemos comes third in seats with the second highest vote share.

Ciudadanos plight reflects the dilemma of the libertarian have to chose between Left and Right coalition partners with whom the both disagree and agree on different issues. By jumping into bed with Pedro Sanchez politically in the failed attempt to form a govt a few months ago, he alienated centre Right voters.

They really can't go at this another time and someone has to come up with a deal. A version of our arrangement may be a way out seeing as there seems little appetite for a grand coalition. Advantage PP in any deal making.


EDIT: Podemos spokesperson (Inigo Errejon) acknowledging their performance has not been good, even though there's a way to go to the final result. Serious and prolonged waffling about it though!

PP could cobble together a government to include Ciudadanos. Latest has both on a combined total of 168 seats at 91% counted.

They have been saying that for a while. And telling us it would show in the coming elections. They have now had two election and its seems not to be going the way of the left.

PSOE didn't win in any region

Unidos Podemos won in Catalunya and País Vasco

PP won everywhere else.

PP-CS on 169 (137 and 32) with 94% counted. 7 more needed for majority. Can they do it?

Hard to see how Rajoy won't be Head of Government, whatever the arithmetic involved.
