MADRID — Spain’s four major political parties have kicked off a two-week campaign ahead of a June 26 vote aimed at breaking an electoral deadlock that has left the country with a caretaker government.
Campaigning began at midnight Thursday with rallies by acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy of the conservative Popular Party, Pedro Sanchez of the Socialists, Pablo Iglesias of the far-left Unidos Podemos alliance and Albert Rivera of the business-friendly Ciudadanos.
