Next week is the debate and then vote by MPs on the next prime minister.

Pedro Sánchez (PSOE) looks unlikely to get support or even abstention from enough other parties to get a majority and observers expect another debate and vote in September.

The debate starts on Monday, 22 July, and Sánchez said on Thursday that he would definitely not allow Unidas Podemos' Pablo Iglesias into his Cabinet.
