Spain's PSOE loses votes, right-wing parties gain support, poll shows

Spain's ruling socialists (PSOE) are not expected to win a majority in the country's parliamentary elections on Sunday, according to state television predictions and their number of seats in parliament is seen as decreasing. Meanwhile, right-wing Popular Party (PP) and Vox recorded major gains.

PSOE's result of 123 seats from April is seen as falling to 114-119. Ciudadanos could lose as many as 40 seats and fall down to as few as 14 while PP's number in the lower house could grow from 66 to 85-90. Vox is seen as gaining up to 59 seats which compares to 24 it won in April. Unidas Podemos could lose around 10 seats from the previous vote.
