The PP, anti-austerity upstart Podemos and five smaller parties voted against Sanchez, scuppering his pact with Ciudadanos. A small party from the Canary Islands also voted for Sanchez.Podemos has sworn to vote against any coalition which includes Rajoy's PP party and Sanchez has said repeatedly he would not support any pact which would allow Rajoy to return to power.On Saturday, Rajoy, in a speech before supporters, scolded Sanchez for wasting time on a coalition which lacked enough seats to win the necessary support and called on the Socialist leader to join the PP for a new government or stand aside.
