MADRID (Reuters) - Spain’s Socialist Party will win April 28 national elections with 31.3 percent of the vote, according to an opinion poll published on Wednesday.

Neither a left-leaning coalition of Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez’s Socialists and Podemos nor a right-wing coalition will command a majority in parliament, according to a GAD3 poll for newspaper ABC.

Far-right party Vox is tipped to win 11.8 percent of the vote and become the fourth largest party with 30 seats, overtaking leftist Podemos, the poll shows.
