MADRID: Spain's conservative People's Party (PP) mandated its leader on Wednesday to hold talks on forming a pact with a rival party, though he still faces a struggle to end an eight-month political stalemate.
PP leaders met to discuss the offer from centrist party Ciudadanos to consider backing Mariano Rajoy for a second term as prime minister, provided the PP agreed to a six-point package of political reforms.
