Spain has entered into a new political era after a general election on Sunday signalled the end of the country's 40-year-old two-party system, the leader of newcomer anti-austerity party Pablo Iglesias said.

"Today is an historic day for Spain... We are starting a new political era in our country," said Iglesias, whose party was seen winning 69 seats in Spain's 350-strong parliament according to preliminary results.

"Spain is not going to be the same anymore," he also said.
