Sanchez was accused of failure of negotiations left parliamentary bloc “Together we can” (Podemos Unidos). “Podemos “is blocking us for the fourth time together with the conservative opposition, preventing the establishment of the progressive government headed by the Socialist party,” said Sanchez.
The opposition, in turn, accused Sanchez’s reluctance to form a coalition Cabinet. “It’s not fair that when you create progressive governments will be represented only 7 million people who voted for the socialist party. 4 million citizens who voted for us must also be submitted… Attempt to become Prime Minister, without offering anything in return, senseless”, — said the leader of Podemos, Pablo Iglesias, quoted by Euronews.
