Text size Aa Aa

Voting stations in Spain have now closed, and exit polls suggest a landslide victory for Popular Party President, Mariano Rajoy.

The poll showed the centre-right party winning 181 to 185 seats in the 350 seat lower house, or 43.5 percent of the votes. This gives them the absolute majority they need to form a government.

It also indicated that the Socialists, lead by Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba, would fall to just 115 to 119 seats, or a 30 percent share of the votes.
