Spanish socialists to oppose Rajoy's bid to be PM

Spanish socialist leader Pedro Sanchez has said he will oppose Mariano Rajoy's bid to be installed as prime minister in a parliamentary vote on Wednesday. Caretaker PM Rajoy said he would risk the vote even though his centre-right People's Party and its allies are six deputies short of a majority, with 170. Some commentators had urged the socialists, with 85 deputies, to abstain to break eight months of deadlock.
