Spain'south Socialist Party says coalition gov't still possible

Spain'south Socialist Party says there is still a chance of arriving at an agreement with far-left Podemos to form a coalition government.

Socialist negotiator Antonio Hernando said there is seventy % agreement with a 20-point proposal submitted by Podemos aimed at breaking "the political logjam and enable a government."

Hernando said the Socialists objected only to two points related to Podemos' commitment to allowing northeastern Catalonia to keep a secession referendum, and its insistence on excluding business-friendly Ciudadanos from a coalition.

The Socialists reached a coalition agreement with Ciudadanos in Feb and the two parties could form a government with Podemos' votes, or abstentions, in the 350-seat lower house of parliament.

A new government should be in space by May two or another election will be held on June 26.
