Spanish PM Sanchez says he could compromise on budget, sees no snap election

By Rodrigo Campos and Mary Milliken NEW YORK (Reuters) – Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said on Thursday he could relinquish his plans for more ambitious spending in order to secure passage of his government’s 2019 budget in parliament, an important test for his four-month-old minority government. The Socialist leader told Reuters he could be forced to work with the former, tighter deficit targets set by the previous conservative government and thereby avoid a budgetary stalemate that could lead to a snap election.
