Spain's acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said he would make a push for power after his conservatives won more seats in parliament in a repeat general election on Sunday, even though it still fell short of a majority. The Socialists held on to second place like in December, though with just 85 seats, their worst score in modern history. The far-left Unidos Podemos coalition came third with 71 seats, reversing pre-election expectations that it could leapfrog over the Socialists and replace them as the main left-wing force.
Britain's opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn insisted Sunday he would not give up his job in a Labour Party revolt over his handling of the EU referendum campaign, as the aftershocks from the "Leave" vote reverberate around the country. "I regret there have been resignations today from my shadow cabinet. "Those who want to change Labour's leadership will have to stand in a democratic election, in which I will be a candidate," he said in a statement.
