Spain to hold snap election on April 28

Madrid: Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez on Friday called a snap general election on April 28. Sanchez, 46, of the Socialist Party (PSOE), said he was asking for Parliament to be dissolved and for the polls to be held a month before regional elections in the country.

“I have proposed the dissolution of Parliament and call for elections on April 28,” Sánchez said in a nationally televised press conference from his official residence Moncloa Palace. The announcement came two days after his Socialist government suffered a defeat in Parliament after failing to get its 2019 budget passed, CNN reported.
