Spain's Socialist PSOE party has won the 2019 general election with 29% of the popular vote but has fallen short of a majority in congress.

PSOE’s leader and incumbent prime minister Pedro Sanchez said the party’s victory meant the "future has won and the past has lost."

Pablo Iglesias, the leader of Unidas Podemos, has expressed his desire to form a left-wing coalition government.

A total of 2.6 million votes for Vox saw them gain 24 seats in parliament – the first time a far-right party has sat in the Congress of Deputies since the death of dictator Francisco Franco in 1975.

The established centre-right Partido Popular suffered their worst ever general election defeat as they more than halved their number of seats from 137 to just 66.
