The outgoing conservative Popular Party (PP) had based much of its campaign on trying to counter the rise of the upstart, emphasising the need for "stability" in the face of "populism" — and it reinforced this message Friday after Brexit. 

But according to a wide-ranging exit poll for public television TVE, it may only have won up to 121 parliamentary seats, far below the 176 needed for an absolute majority and even lower than the 123 it won in December.

Unidos Podemos, meanwhile, looked poised to secure 91 to 95 seats, and the Socialists 81 to 85, according to the poll. 

TVE Exit Polls

Popular Party

117-121 seats

Unidos Podemos

91 – 95 seats

Socialists 

81 – 85

Ciudadanos

25-30 seats

But this also resulted in a 350-seat parliament so splintered that parties failed to agree on a coalition, prompting today's repeat vote. The general election in December had seen Podemos and centre-right upstart Ciudadanos uproot the country's two-party dominance in an unprecedented result. 

All eyes will now be on subsequent coalition negotiations, with political leaders under more pressure this time to form some sort of government and avoid a third round of elections. 

Throughout the campaign — and again on Friday after the Brexit vote — the PP had hammered away at the need for stability in reference to the rise of Unidos Podemos, which like Greece's ruling Syriza party rejects EU-backed austerity and pledges to fight for the least well-off.

The four main parties — the conservative PP, the socialist PSOE, the liberal Ciudadanos and the radical-left Podemos — failed to come together to form a government, even though some of them (mainly PSOE and Ciudadanos) certainly tried. Since the parties weren’t able to form a coalition government, Spain will hold a new election.

The December election gave the Mariano Rajoy's ruling center-right Popular Party 123 seats in the 350-member Congress, while PSOE got 90, followed by two new parties in the national scene, Podemos with 69 seats, and Ciudadanos with 40.

Third election tentative date – 26th December 2016
Mariano Rajoy was proposed as candidate by King Felipe VI on 28 July, with Rajoy's investiture session starting on 30 August and a first round of voting scheduled for the next day. As a result, the date for a possible new election would tentatively be set for Christmas Day, 25 December 2016, in the event no candidate is able to obtain the confidence of the Congress of Deputies before 31 October

Official results give the PP 137 seats in the 350-seat parliament and the PSOE 85 – confounding an earlier exit poll suggesting the Socialists would slip into third place.Unidos Podemos have won 71 and Ciudadanos 32. Both parties are relative newcomers to the Spanish political scene.
