MADRID (Reuters) - The leader of Spain’s main opposition People’s Party, Pablo Casado, told Socialist leader Pedro Sanchez in a telephone conversation on Tuesday his party would oppose Sanchez’s bid to become prime minister, a Socialist party source said.

“The PP leader has informed of his rejection of the investiture of the Socialist candidate, meaning he refuses to support a stable government in Spain and to avoid a repeat election,” the source said.

The People’s Party said only that the two had a cordial conversation an that its leader would speak about it later.
