The Heat: Spain Election

The Heat

Voters in Spain went to the polls on Sunday in the country’s second general election since April. It was also Spain’s fourth general election in the last four years.

Spain’s Socialists won the most seats but failed to win a majority. Questions continue about Spain’s ability to break its political gridlock.

Meanwhile, the far-right Vox party was a big winner, more than doubling its seats.
