Negotiations to continue between PSOE and Podemos

Written by on September 9, 2019

Negotiating teams between PSOE and Unidos Podemos are to meet again today, in an effort to form an agreement for a forthcoming investiture vote.

Discussions were held last week between the two parties over policies ahead of the deadline for PSOE leader Pedro Sanchez to pass a vote of confidence.

It’s understood Executive Vice President of PSOE – Carmen Calvo – and Political Action Secretary of Podemos – Pablo Echenique – held telephone conversations over the last few days to arrange the next round of negotiations.

PSOE won April’s General Election, but failed to gain a majority in the Congress of Deputies. An investiture vote must be passed in the next fortnight to avoid another national poll being triggered.
