MADRID, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 2nd August, 2016) - Spain's acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy warned Tuesday that the country faced the risk of holding a third round of elections, after his Socialist rival refused to back his efforts to form a coalition government.

"If Mr Sanchez (Socialist party chief) continues to say no, we will go to repeat elections," Rajoy, who is attempting to form a coalition or minority government following inconclusive June elections, told reporters.
