Political leaders vying for power in Spain's general election made a point of relaxing as they observed a "day of reflection" before the vote begins.

Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, whose Popular Party seeks a second consecutive four-year term in office, jogged Saturday around Moncloa Palace, the prime minister's official residence, describing "fresh air" as ideal for the occasion.

Pedro Sanchez of the main opposition Socialist Party, a former basketball player, accompanied his wife to see daughters Carlota and Ainhoa play in a game of basketball.

Pablo Iglesias of the upstart radical left Podemos party that hopes to shake up Spanish politics in Sunday's vote booked his place to see "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" on its second day of showing in Spain.
