Madrid - Surprise in Spain: Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has dissolved parliament and called new elections. He was reacting to the heavy defeat in the regional elections. Now all eligible voters in the country are to be called to the polls on July 23, 2023. The procedure is said to have already been agreed with King Felipe, according to consistent media reports.
