Less than one third of Spaniards want a re-run of the general election, which resulted in a stalemate. A poll shows that two-thirds favour a pact between parties, while just seven per cent said they would change their votes in a fresh election and 87.1 per cent said they would vote the same way. Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s Partido Popular (PP) won the most votes at the election but lost its parliamentary majority. The opposition socialists (PSOE) were in second place, but both lost ground to newcomers, the liberal Ciudadanos and left-wing Podemos.
