MADRID (Reuters) – Spain’s ruling Socialists would win 134 seats in the upcoming election due April 28, though would fall short of a majority in the 350-seat parliament forcing it to seek allies to pass legislation, a poll showed on Monday.

The GAD3 poll for the ABC newspaper showed that a coalition of right-wing parties would also not win enough seats to hold a majority, with the People’s Party taking 87 seats, Ciudadanos taking 38 seats and Vox holding another 36 seats.

The poll was taken amongst 1,000 people between March 4 and March 8 with a margin of error of +-3.1 percent.
