Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez will on Friday call a snap national election for April 28.

That's according to the daily El Pais, which said the leader was expected to announce the date for a snap election following the cabinet meeting on Friday. 

This comes just a week after the parliament rejected his 2019 budget.

Sanchez had taken office in June last year after the previous conservative government was ousted in a no-confidence vote.
