12 November, 16:19

    (ANSAmed) - MADRID, NOVEMBER 12 - Spanish Socialist leader Pedro Sanchez and the leader of Podemos Pablo Iglesias on Tuesday signed an agreement in Congress to form a coalition government.

    "We have reached a pre-agreement to form a progressive coalition government combining the experience of Psoe and the courage of Unidas Podemos", Iglesias told a joint press conference with Sanchez. "It is an agreement for four years of legislature", said Sanchez at the signature of the document. "It will be based on cohesion and loyalty and it is open to the remaining political forces to build a parliamentary majority".

    The 'pre-agreement' postpones nominations to form the new government to after the vote of confidence.

    The Socialist party will start contacts with the remaining political parties to build a parliamentary majority, Sanchez said. "This new government will be roundly progressive because it will be formed by progressive forces and because it will work for the progress of Spain and every Spaniard. "Hatred and division" will not be included, said Sanchez. (ANSAmed)
