Text size Aa Aa

With Sunday's polls for parliamentary elections in Spain due to open in a few hours, the leaders of all the political parties have now completed their pre-election campaigns and are taking a few hours to relax peacefully.

Outgoing Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez chose the countryside. His wife was also there and several locals joined him on his walk through picturesque villages.

The head of the People's Party, Pablo Casado, also spent the day with his family in the countryside. He even played football with his children and got a tour of surrounding villages.

The head of the Podemos party, Pablo Iglesias, was present at a screening of a documentary on climate change in Madrid, having by his side the party's second in command Irene Montero.

Sunday's election is the country's third general election in the last four years. It is expected to be one of the tightest contests in decades and has been dominated by the rise of the far-right, which analysts say could play a role in who forms the next government, depending on the outcome.
