RikH 5pts No party has anything to gain from a coalition with PP.Very similar for a coalition led by PSOE.Of the 2 newcomers Podemos should never join any coalition, as it would erode its credibility as a protest party. Unless of course the new government's agenda would be their's. Which is completely unlikely. It would require a 3 party coalition with for Cuidadanos having a lot of influence as well. The 2 bite each other. For Cuidadanos on the left they would need a lot of influence which is unlikely with P in the government. For them on the right with PSOE a very similar situation arises (in between the 2 traditionals, they would look like a new traditional).A coalition PSOE, PP would likely mean the bankruptcy. It simply confirms that there is not much difference between them. Killing in a climate where half the electorate is fed up with the trditionals and their corruption and empty promises longer term. Shorter term lousy as they always have been each others opposition and voters are unlikely to forget that. especially dangerous with an unstable coalition as this one will be.So no political reason to come to a new government. May be the illusion that national interest and so on requires a government and one or more blink. Eg by pressure from the markets.Or a new election. Likely with a similar result. But say with PSOE having a sort of mandate to get into a coalition as part of the election. Would give them short term some backing. Longer term it is a disaster.
