MADRID The leader of Spain's Socialists Pedro Sanchez failed on Friday to win the confidence of parliament to become prime minister, opening a new round of talks between parties to break an over two-month deadlock after an inconclusive election.
As on Wednesday when he lost a first investiture vote, Sanchez secured the backing of only 131 representatives in the 350-strong assembly.
