Spain's new Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, propelled to power by an unlikely alliance of rival parties, on Sunday worked on putting together a minority government which a close aide said would not include ministers from the hard-left Podemos party.The Socialist party leader, a pro-European who is a newcomer to government, says he wants his government to last until mid-2020, when the parliamentary term ends.Sanchez rose to power unexpectedly as a result of a corruption scandal that toppled conservative Mariano Rajoy.
