“Sick And Tired”: Spaniards Fed Up With Yet Another Election, Fourth In 4 Years

Spain has been in political limbo since the Socialists emerged as the biggest party in a parliamentary election in April but without enough seats to govern on their own.

MADRID: 

Spaniards were frustrated and angry on Wednesday after being called to the polls for a fourth time in four years and some said they would stay away from the ballot box, making it harder to predict how the political deadlock could be broken.

Spain has been in political limbo since the Socialists emerged as the biggest party in a parliamentary election in April but without enough seats to govern on their own.

Rival parties in the fragmented parliament have failed to support efforts by acting Socialist premier Pedro Sanchez to form a government and on Tuesday night he called a new election for Nov. 10.

Political analysts have said voters are so weary of being called to the ballot box that turnout might be lower than usual.

“For the first time, I think I won’t vote and it pains me a lot,” said 47-year-old Ruben, an events manager.
