Madrid: Spain has missed the deadline for its politicians to form a new government following inconclusive elections held 20 December so King Felipe VI must now dissolve parliament before a new election on 20 June.
Since no political party had enough support to form a government and all parties failed to reach coalition agreements by midnight Monday — the deadline — the stage is set for an unprecedented repeat of general elections, six months after the previous ballot ended Spain's two-party system.
The king will sign a decree dissolving parliament Tuesday.
