Spanish PM calls snap elections for April 28

Spain's socialist prime minister yesterday called early elections for April 28, the third in less than four years, after his draft budget was rejected in parliament over the Catalan secession crisis. Opinion polls suggest one outcome of the snap election could be a rightwing majority in parliament, including a newly-emerged far-right party. The campaign will focus on the hot-button issue of the secession crisis in Catalonia, with the right-wing furious at Sanchez's attempts to negotiate with the region's separatist executive, accusing him of yielding to their demands to stay in power.
