Spain's PM may call snap election - EFE

Politics A- A A+

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez is considering calling an early national election for April 14, state-owned news agency EFE reported on Monday citing unnamed government sources.

The ruling Socialists hold less than a quarter of the seats in the lower parliamentary house and face a key vote on the 2019 budget on Wednesday, that they could well lose.

Officials had told Reuters over the past few days that an early election was likely but that, while April was a possibility, the date had not been set yet.
