MADRID – Spain's King Felipe VI plans to hold a new round of talks with political party leaders in a bid to find one who can muster enough support to form a government before an Oct. 31 deadline.

Parliament Speaker Ana Pastor said Tuesday that the talks would take place Oct. 24-25. If no government is formed by the month's end, Spain will hold its third election in a year.
