MADRID (Reuters) – The leader of Spain’s far-left Unidas Podemos Pablo Iglesias said on Friday that he still hopes for a last-minute government deal with the Socialists.

Without a deal, his party will not back Socialist leader Pedro Sanchez’s bid to be confirmed as prime minister, Iglesias told La Sexta television.

If a government is not sworn in by Sept.23, there will be parliamentary elections on Nov.10.
