The Socialist Party (PSOE) of incumbent Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez and the radical left-wing Podemos, led by Pablo Iglesias, have announced an agreement in principle to form a " progressive coalition government ." This deal could lift Spain out of the political instability that has dominated it since 2015.

At a joint press conference on Tuesday 12 November, the outgoing Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez and Pablo Iglesias announced the signing of an agreement in principle for the formation of a government composed of their formations, respectively the Socialist Party (PSOE ) and Podemos. The two leftist groups had already failed to form a government, especially in previous elections in April.

The support of other forces will however be necessary for an investiture by the Chamber of Deputies, after the elections of Sunday, November 10, because the support of Podemos acquired by the head of the outgoing government is not enough on its own to arrive. at the threshold of the majority of 176 deputies. The radical left party has only 35 deputies, and the Socialists have 120.

Pedro Sanchez will also need the support of some of the Catalan separatists, against whom the Socialist has hardened the tone during the campaign, or that of Ciudadanos . And the preference seems to be towards the Liberals. " We will continue to try not to depend on separatists " who supported Sanchez's coming to power in June 2018 before releasing him last February, " and it is possible, " assured José Luis Abalos, Socialist Minister of Transport and trusted man of Mr. Sanchez, the day before the announcement of an agreement.
