Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has called a snap election on April 28.

He made the announcement on Friday, two days after his minority government’s budget for 2019 initiative was defeated in a parliamentary vote.

The latest opinion polls give Sanchez’s center-left Socialist Workers’ Party the largest support. But it’s still not enough for his party to win a majority in the upcoming election.

Spain is rife with division. A trial of former separatist movement leaders in Catalonia started this week, drawing sharp reactions from separatists. A far-right party, Vox, gained in a regional election in December.
