Vox says wants to build "patriotic alternative" in Spain

MADRID, Nov 10 (Reuters) - Santiago Abascal, leader of Spain's far-right Vox, on Sunday said he wanted to build a "patriotic alternative" for the country, after support for his party surged in a general election.

With nearly 99% of votes counted, Vox had won 52 seats in Spain's 350-seat parliament, more than doubling its result from the previous election in April.

Abscal gave no details of what alliances such a "patriotic alternative" could entail. (Reporting by Ashifa Kassam, Belen Carreno Writing by Nathan Allen Editing by Ingrid Melander)
