MADRID (Reuters) – Spain’s Socialists’ lead in voting intentions ahead of the November 10 election is losing steam, leaving the party of the acting prime minister Pedro Sanchez further from a parliamentary majority, the latest GAD3 poll for ABC newspaper showed on Monday.

The Socialists would lose 5 seats in the Parliament and neither the left-wing nor the right-wing parties in conjunction are seen winning a majority.

GAD3 poll also showed Spanish far-right party Vox winning more seats than in April election to become third-biggest party with 41 of the 350 seats of the Spanish Parliament.

The poll showed the conservative People’s Party (PP) would take 100 seats, winning 34 seats from the previous election, while market friendly Ciudadanos would sink to 17 seats, 40 seats less than in the April election.
