Wow.  How's that work out? PSOE-FAC, FAC-PP, PSOE-PP?

Even worse. Check out Navarra.

Only possible government is UPN-PSOE. Or rather a UPN government where the PSOE hold their noses. No way that UPN pacts with the Basque nationalist parties (Bildu and Naforroa-Bai) because UPN is Navarran nationalist.  What a mess.
