Supporters of Spain's Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez on Saturday gathered in their thousands urging him not to step down from office, APA reports citing DW.

On Wednesday the Socialist premier said that he was considering the possibility of resigning after a court opened a fraud investigation into his wife. He said he would suspend all public duties until he announces his decision on Monday.

"I need to stop and think whether I should continue to head the government or whether I should give up this honour," he wrote in a four-page letter posted on X, formerly Twitter.

At a meeting of the party's federal committee, Deputy Prime Minister Maria Jesus Montero said: "Prime Minister, stay, Pedro, stay. We are with you."

Outside, the Socialist party supporters played music and waved flags, also calling for Sanchez to stay put.

"I hope he continues, because Spain has to continue with him. If not, it scares me. We are afraid of what could come," Leonor Romero, a councillor from southern Spain, told the Reuters news agency.
