Incumbent Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez casts vote



Spain's Socialist party leader and outgoing Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez called on Spaniards to send a clear message in Sunday's (April 28) poll after he cast his vote in the country's general election.

Sanchez, the front runner, hopes to lead the country and called for a clear majority in parliament in order to end "years of instability".

Sunday's election is Spain's most open and divisive in decades, and no party is expected to obtain a majority.

At least five parties from across the political spectrum - including far-right newcomer Vox - have a chance of being in government and could struggle to agree on a deal among them, meaning a repeat election cannot be excluded.

It is unclear if Sanchez will manage to stay in power and how many allies he would need to do so.
