Spain is holding general elections on Sunday, with some 36.5 million people eligible to cast ballots for the 350 members of the lower house of Parliament and 208 senators.

These are the most hotly contested general elections in recent decades, with four parties vying for victory but voter preference polls showing no one winning an absolute majority.

The governing center-right Popular Party, or PP, and the Spanish Socialist Workers Party, or PSOE, which have established themselves in the two-party system of recent years, face a challenge in this election from two new parties – the centrist Ciudadanos party and the left-wing Podemos party.
