Santiago Abascal, leader of the Spanish far-right party Vox, cast his vote on Sunday in Spain's General election in Madrid.
«Today, all Spaniards, without exception, exercise our national sovereignty and we want to, in a day like today, express our wish that it remains this way, that Spaniards, all of us together, can be the owners of our future and that we can resolve our differences voting in... Еще free and democratic elections,» he said, thanking public servants and law enforcement authorities who «made it possible that the election day took place under normal and free conditions.»
He added he hoped the outcome of the elections would be to «strengthen Spain's unity, the freedom of Spaniards and national harmony, pushing back on any attempt to divide, hate or confrontation between Spaniards.»
Spain returned to the polls on Sunday for the second time in 2019. The winner of the last election on April 28, the Spanish Socialist Workers Party (PSOE), was unable to form a government amid months of political instability.
