Today will be the last day of campaigning for the Spanish General Election which takes place on Sunday. Tomorrow will be a “day of reflection” upon which campaigning is banned.

Polls indicate that no party is likely to win an overall majority, and the main question will be whether the right-wing parties, composing of the PP and Vox, will win enough votes between them to form a government; or whether the left, consisting of the Socialists, Sumar and some regional parties, will be able to form a majority.

Campaigns wound up with a TV debate in which the leader of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, did not take part. Until recently, polls predicted that the PP would win most votes and may be able to govern with the aid of Vox; but the left-wing parties have recently rallied, and the situation is a knife-edge in which the support of the Coalición Canaria could play a key role.

Voting will take place all day Sunday with first  results coming in later in the evening.
