Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I will defer to Migs' greater knowledge on this, but I suspect Vox's anti-feminism would have been anathema to them. Ciudadanos have become primarily the centre right party for people put off by the PP's corruption whereas atm Vox seems more a party of protest rather than a party of government. I suspect none of the three would have been comfortable with the others, and all are probably relieved that the results mean there is no pressure on them to work together.

What parties say before an election is often not s good indicator of who they end up coalescing with after an election, as it is the arithmetic which often determines who ends up having to work with who. Sanchez still has some awkward decisions to make as to who to coalesce with in order to achieve an absolute majority, but it should be a good deal easier than when he had only 85 seats before the election.

Just look at the Andalusia regional government.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
