(Reuters) - Spain’s far-right party is seen winning 8-10 seats in a regional election in Andalusia, according to an opinion poll published as voting closed, in what would be the first parliamentary representation for a far-right party in Spain in decades.

The GAD3 poll, carried out for ABC newspaper by telephone between Nov 19-30, showed the Socialists getting most votes in Sunday’s election but without enough seats to rule on their own.

There are a total of 109 seats in Andalusia’s regional parliament.
