The Spanish minority Socialist Government lost a vote over its budget plan on Friday.
The Spanish Socialists (PSOE) lost the vote as their left-wing junior allies, Unidos Podemos, as well as Catalan and Basque parties abstained. 86 MP’s abstained.
PSOE controls merely 88 seats in the 350-seat parliament.
Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez took over as prime minister after ousting the long-serving conservative prime minister Mariano Rajoy in June; Rajoy depended on socialist support in parliament.
