    Spaniards are furious and 'traditional parties' get beaten in regional elections

    Spaniards rejected PP and rival Socialists, and opted for change in the shape of new parties: market-friendly Ciudadanos ('Citizens') and anti-austerity Podemos

    Spain's ruling People's Party (PP) took a battering on Sunday's regional and local elections after voters punished Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy for four years of severe spending cuts and a string of corruption scandals. In a test of the national mood ahead of general elections expected in November, the PP suffered its worst result in more than 20 years to herald an uncertain era of coalition as new parties rose to fragment the vote.
