Socialists win Spain polls amid far right surge

Madrid, Nov 12 (TIWN) The Spanish Socialist Party (PSOE) of acting Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has won most of the seats in the country's fourth general election, but fell short of a majority while right-wing parties made major gains, it was reported on Monday.

The conservative Popular Party (PP) came in second, and far-right Vox more than doubled its seats to become the country's third most-powerful party.  This is Spain's fourth general election in as many years.  A previous vote in April ended with no clear majority, and the Socialists failed to form a coalition government.
