No Podemos ministers in new Spanish government -PM's aide

MADRID, June 3 (Reuters) - Spain’s new Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, propelled to power by an unlikely alliance of rival parties, on Sunday worked on putting together a minority government which a close aide said would not include any ministers from hard-left party Podemos.

Asked if there would be any Podemos ministers, Margarita Robles, a spokeswoman for Sanchez, told Cadena Cope radio: “No, no. Pedro Sanchez’ position is clear. It will be a Socialist party government, a minority government.”
