Spain's Rajoy: "Important" to keep up with economic reforms

Rajoy will have first chance to form coalition

Here are the updated elections results:

  • Rajoy's PP - 122 seats
  • Socialists - 91 seats
  • Podemos - 69 seats
  • Ciudadanos - 40 seats

Forming a government will be tough with at least 176 seats needed. The natural ally of Rajoy would be Ciudadanos but they only have 162 seats combined. The only way that could work would be if the Socialists abstain.

Otherwise, the Socialists, Podemos and the United Left could try to build a coalition.
