Spain's Socialist legislature to be cut short if budget fails: party official

MADRID (Reuters) - If Spain’s parliament rejects the 2019 budget proposal, the current minority Socialist legislature, due to end in 2020, would be cut short, the party’s Deputy Secretary General Adriana Lastra said on Monday.

It is up to Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez to take the final decision on whether to call an early election, Lastra said during a conference in Madrid. The budget vote is due Wednesday.
