Spain Socialists, far-left Podemos agree in principle to form govt | AFP

Pedro Sanchez (PSOE, the Spanish Socialist Party) and Pablo Iglesias (Podemos Party) announce that the parties have agreed in principle to form a coalition government. A government formed by the two parties — who tried and failed to reach a deal several months ago, triggering Sunday’s repeat election — would need the support of other factions in order to pass an investiture vote with at least 176 votes in the 350-seat parliament.
