Spanish elections: Citizens’ Party leader Albert Rivera resigns after Weak electoral score

Ciudadanos leader Albert Rivera resigned after his party’s bad result from the Spanish elections on Sunday.

From the April 2019 elections, the party came, getting 4.1 million votes and 57 chairs but on Sunday, the party won only 10 chairs in Spain’s 350-seat congress.

Rivera broke into Catalan politics if he had been 26-years-old. His celebration Ciudadanos or the Citizens celebration was made as a center-right, anti-nationalist celebration.

“We’ve lost nearly half of those votes,” Rivera said on Sunday after learning of this unexpected outcome.

Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez’s party obtained the most votes but fell short of obtaining a majority in congress.

Many political observers expect the nation’s political stalemate to last.
