11:02 am
pedro sanchez says progressive politics one. spaniards have sent a very clear and categorical message to europe and to the world that it is possible to win against reactionary authoritarian and repressive politics with progressive proposals. but forming a ruling coalition won't be easy on likely allies the anti austerity far left party put de must lead by pavlo iglesias. the election mobilized a huge number of people over seventy five percent of the electorate including those who support the far right. and her vox and anti immigration anti-feminist party that's the first time a far right party has gained seats in spain's parliament since the days of general franco. thank you mr so no three see below this is only the beginning
11:03 am
we told you about our goal to initiate the reconquista and that's exactly what we have done. this is a reconquest with the voice of parliament as of today we can now say loud and clear to the entire country that vox has come to study. the country's mainstream conservative party the people's party suffered big losses it was their worst election to date. spanish politics like elsewhere is becoming more polarized. the election was pitched by prime minister sanchez a socialist as a bid to stop the far right now i've been very happy because i thought that the extreme right would win a lot more but spain reacted to stop that so i'm very very happy. to socialists one but for the first time since the end of the military dictatorship the far right are now part of spain's international politics. let's go straight to

madrid for the latest now due to abuse lisa lois good morning lisa this is a qualified victory worrying for the socialists isn't it which parties will a prime minister sanchez now be reaching out to to form some type of stable coalition while it's going to be really tricky that he actually has about two possibilities so on the one hand he could team up with the far left you need us put him on that won't be enough for majority though so we need to bring in many other smaller parties like for example the catalan or the basque independent party and it . separatist party the other possibility would be to team up with the market liberal see that than us and that would give him the majority in parliament coalition wise that would be easier when it comes to the ideology though it's going to be tricky this election campaign is very much along logical lines and it's kind of difficult to see how these two parties that were very much fighting with each
11:05 am
other about economic programs but also many balls at the catalonian questions question will then come together and form a coalition pact ok no he's on the other side of this illogical divide that you mentioned is the far right box party how will they be influencing national politics now that they take up the seats in parliament. well vox has gotten into parliament will get into parliament for the first time since the end of the franco dictatorship forty years ago. they will have a voice there they will not be able to block any laws but they will be able to very much influence the national debate as they have during this election campaign and that will probably leave the country more divided than before hunt ok another element leading to indicative of rather the erosion of the political center is the poor showing by the country's conservatives what happened to the conservative party
11:06 am
. well it was quite a disaster really they plummeted they only left with very few seats to compared to what they have before hand at least now during the election campaign they already moved very much to the riaa trying to grab some of the votes that might go to vox looks like that that knows the market liberal party might be become the right's number one party in the near future at least if this trend continues so there's a lot of soul searching to be done by the people's party their cattle on independence movement has been dominating spanish baltics for a while now where does this election leave them where are the colonial separatists at this point. well it really depends on what the outcome of the coalition talks will be obviously they have gained some seats in parliament but that will not be enough to make sure that their that the government takes
11:07 am
a softer stance if they don't get into parliament if he teams up with here see that knows it might be really complicated for them if he is a goes down the need has put him us and other party you know smaller party rage that might actually be good for them because then they would be more of an open door to some kind of conciliatory talks. lisa thanks very much for that from madrid lisa louis fores this morning. now for some of the other stories making the news at this hour sri lanka has banned all face coverings that could conceal people's identities the long list special effects muslim women it's a one of a raft of security measures that have been put in place after a series of bombings that killed more than two hundred fifty people on easter sunday. polling stations have opened in parts of india for the fourth phase of parliamentary elections about one hundred thirty million people are eligible to
