Spain expects fierce campaign season

-

BARCELONA, Spain — Spain’s political parties are set to start campaignin­g for a general election this month in which the ruling Socialists are trying to remain in power and the extreme right is seeking to enter Parliament.

The official campaign period that starts at midnight Thursday promises to be a fierce fight for the large pool of undecided voters identified in election polls. Support from those voters could be key to whether the Socialist government led by Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez continues on or the election ushers in a coalition government made up of rightwing parties.

The national election on April 28 will be Spain’s third in four years, a pace that reflects political fragmentat­ion from the emergence of new parties.
