People's Party (PP) leader Pablo Casado commented on his party's second place in the general election while addressing the crowds of supporters in Madrid on Sunday.
Casado slammed his rival, Spanish Socialist Workers' Party leader and current Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez for following his "personal interests" and pledged to be "very demanding of the Socialist Party."
"We are a moderate force, a smooth force. We are the party that will keep protecting the national unity, the Spanish Constitution, the prosperity, creation of jobs, responsible policies which the Spanish people are interested in and care of, worry about," said the PP's leader.
According to preliminary results, Sanchez's socialist party secured 120 seats, though failing to take the majority in the 350-seat Parliament, while PP, in turn, got 88 mandates.
