MADRID:  Polling stations opened across Spain today in what is expected to be one of the most closely-fought contests in its modern history, as two dynamic new parties take on the country’s long-established giants.

Voting began at 9:00 am (0800 GMT) and will continue until 8 pm (1900 GMT), with partial official results expected some two hours later.
