    Spain still stuck in political deadlock as party talks fail

    MADRID (AP) – Spain’s centre-left Socialist leader Pedro Sánchez failed to win the support of the far-left We Can party for his bid to form a government, prolonging the political limbo in the eurozone’s fourth-largest economy.

    Sanchez won the most votes in April’s general election but he is far short of a Parliamentary majority. He needs to negotiate extra votes to get lawmakers’ approval, in a confidence vote later this month, to take office.

    A fifth round of talks between Sánchez and We Can leader Pablo Iglesias broke down without agreement on Tuesday. The two major right-of-centre parties in Parliament said they will block Sánchez’s attempt to return to power.
