Mr. Rivera announced his departure from the party leadership, and politics, during a press conference this morning. He met with the party executive early on Monday morning after the party saw their number of seats fall to just 10.
The General Election on the 10th November was won by PSOE, however no party won a majority in the latest national poll.
