The leader of the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE), Pedro Sanchez, spoke before a crowd of supporters at the party headquarters in Madrid, after his victory in the Spanish general elections held on Sunday.

"It was about winning the elections and governing, we won the elections and we are going to govern Spain," said Sanchez, who added that “We, the Spanish people, have also sent a clear and loud message to Europe and to the world: that we can win over authoritarianism and involution.”

His supporters chanted slogans such as "No pasarán! (they shall not pass)“ or “not with Rivera!" referring to a possible pact with the center-right party Ciudadanos and its leader, Albert Rivera.

The Spanish Socialist Workers´ Party (PSOE), led by incumbent prime minister Pedro Sanchez, has won the elections in Spain with 123 seats. The Popular Party (PP) becomes the second political force with 66 deputies, which is the worst election result in its history. They are followed by Ciudadanos with 57 seats, Unidas Podemos and their allies, which get 43, and the right-wingers of Vox, who break into Parliament with 24 seats.
