AT: We learned that the socialists won in Spain, but it won’t be easy to put a government together, as we see in this report:
Spain’s socialist prime minister says he will consider talks to form a new government only with parties that respect the constitution and promote social justice.
Pedro Sánchez declared his party the winner in Sunday’s general election, a ballot in which the far-right made inroads for the first time since Spain returned to democratic rule.
Sánchez hinted at a preference for a left-wing governing alliance but his stress on the constitution also sent a warning to Catalan separatists even though he may need their support to be elected by Parliament’s lower house to a new term as prime minister.
Translation: Spain is a mess.
