MADRID (Sputnik) — The Spanish centrist-left Citizens party may either negotiate with the ruling Popular Party (PP), or join the opposition, the party's vice-general secretary, Jose Manuel Villegas, said Monday.
"The PP headed by [acting Prime Minister Mariano] Rajoy won. Now, we have to negotiate with them and see whether there will be any agreements. But it is also possible that there will be agreements without Citizens' participation, that Citizens will join the opposition," Villegas told the Onda Cero radio station.
Spain’s center-right PP won Spain's parliamentary election on Sunday, with the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE) finishing second.
The PP has received 33 percent of all votes counted and thus will have 137 seats in Spain's 350-seat lower house of parliament.
