On Sunday, June 26, voters in Spain go back to the election booths one more time following the December national elections in which no coalition could achieve a majority.
Recent polls suggest a coalition of socialists are on the verge of an absolute absolute majority.
[…] The above chart from El Pais.
The polls show United We Can plus PSOE is within one of an absolute majority. If necessary, they could pick up a few votes from “other”.
No other coalitions make any practical or mathematical sense.
It is possible PSOE and/or Ciudadanos abstain, perhaps on the grounds that acting prime minister Mariano Rajoy steps aside. Abstention would allow PP to stay in power.
