Spain’s Sanchez says Podemos leader cannot be in government

July 18, 2019

MADRID (Reuters) – Spain’s acting prime minister Pedro Sanchez said on Thursday that he would not accept that far-left Podemos leader Pablo Iglesias be part of his government.

Spain is at a crunch time, with parliament voting next week on whether Sanchez can stay on as prime minister.

Podemos has consulted party members on whether the party should demand that its top officials be in government in order to back Sanchez. The outcome is expected late on Thursday or on Friday.
