Could Spain’s snap election end with the first far-right party in power for half a century?

In Spain, polls are about to close in the country’s snap general election.

The Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez called the vote after his socialist party’s poor showing in recent local elections.

His main rival is Alberto Nunez Feijoo – leader of the conservative Popular Party.

If he’s unable to win outright, he may look to the Vox party for support – the first time a hard right party would be in government since General Franco’s regime ended nearly half a century ago.
