    Spain’s politics remain in deadlock after the centre-left PSOE party of prime minister Petro Sánchez shed a handful of seats but still won the country’s fourth general election in as many years, but his left bloc fell well short of the 176 seats needed for a majority in parliament.

    Despite the far-right, anti-immigration Vox party more than doubling its previous score and the conservative People’s party also making sizeable gains, the right was also left without enough seats to form a government after the liberal Citizens party lost four-fifths of its deputies and was all but wiped out.
    The major national parties’ final scores, compared with their tallies in April’s elections, were as follows:

    Left 157 seats: PSOE 120 (down 3), Podemos 35 (down 7), Mas Pais 2

    Right 149 seats: PP: 87 (up 21), Vox: 52 (up 28), Citizens: 10 (down 47)
