    Spain’s conservative Popular Party has had a clear win in Madrid’s regional elections but still failed to get an outright majority.

    It may yet have to seek an alliance with a far-right party.

    Isabel Díaz Ayuso who leads the Popular Party, opposed COVID-19 lockdowns in defiance of the left-wing national government of Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez.
