The Spanish Parliament is dissolved

“I made the decision after looking at the results of yesterday’s elections,” Sanchez said in a televised speech.

Sanchez’s Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE) and its junior ally Podemos lost Sunday’s regional elections, while rivals the conservative People’s Party and the far-right Vox party prevailed.

Although yesterday’s elections were local and regional in scope, the report of the vote carries a message beyond that. Therefore, as Prime Minister and PSOE General Secretary, I personally take responsibility for the results

he added.
