Mass rally against Sanchéz and for the calling of fresh elections in Madrid, today:

General view of the protest in Madrid.

The number of people in the rally is disputed. The government says 45,000, while organizers say 200,000. Looking at the pictures, i would say something in the middle. The rally was called by PP and C's after Sanchéz deal with the Catalans, that only lasted 3 days. Vox also was present in the rally.

What's the chance of general elections being held in May? Things look quite grim for Sanchéz.

So, it seems Sanchéz is completely trapped right now. Governing by decree in a parliamentary system is impossible, unless you are a caretaker. And elections, according to all indications, will be nightmare for PSOE. Quite a very difficult situation Spain is in right now.  

Like you said, elections are inevitable. Either it's a "Super Sunday" on May, or, it could be possible, an "Iberian Sunday" with general election in Spain and Portugal on October 6.
