MADRID, December 21. /TASS/. The People’s Party of Spain "managed to once again become the country’s leading political force," Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said after Sunday’s parliamentary elections.
Rajoy said the party that won the elections "should try to form the government."
"We have had difficult four years, but I have been doing what, in my view, has been the best for Spain’s interests," the premier said, underscoring the importance of continuation of economic transformations.
"We are entering a difficult period, when it is necessary to hold talks and reach agreements," Rajoy said. "I will try to do that."
Sunday saw parliamentary elections in Spain. With 99.64% of election protocols processed, the People’s Party won with 123 seats. The Spanish Socialist Workers Party gained 90 seats in the 350-seat Congress of Deputies. The third position is held by leftist Podemos ("We can") with 69 mandates and it is followed by centrist Citizens with 40 seats.
