BIG CHANGES possibly ahead after yesterday's regional elections in Spain:
Basque politicians on Monday prepared for days of negotiations over a possible alliance between moderate parties that could oust nationalists from power for the first time in 30 years.
More on the Basque Country election at the BBC, which also reports on the other big development:
In north-western Spain, the coastal region of Galicia produced a result which may offer clearer pointers to future nationwide trends.

Having governed for four years in coalition with Galician nationalists, the Socialists were defeated by a resurgent People's Party, which regained control of a region which was historically a conservative stronghold.
The beginning of the end for Zapatero?
