Cartoon General election in Spain

The 10 November snap general election in Spain, the fourth in four years, was marked by the victory of outgoing prime minister Pedro Sánchez's Socialist Party (PSOE), the collapse of the centrist Ciudadanos, and the breakthrough of the far-right Vox party. While it had only a handful of local elected representatives only a year ago, Vox is now the country's third largest political force.
