Spain’s king invites Sanchez to seek parliamentary vote as PM

June 6, 2019

MADRID (Reuters) – Spain’s King Felipe VI invited acting head of government Pedro Sanchez on Thursday to seek parliament’s approval to be sworn in as prime minister, parliament’s speaker said.

Sanchez’s Socialist party won a national election in April without securing a majority.

The King has held meetings this week with representatives of the main political parties and subsequently met speaker Meritxell Batet to communicate his decision to her.
