Spanish MPs should end Saturday night at ten months of political deadlock in the voting trust the Conservative Mariano Rajoy, poised to retain power for lack of agreement of the opposition.
Spain is perhaps about to break the political impasse in which it is enmeshed in ten months. The Spanish parliament is expected to end Saturday, October 29th at the political crisis by granting somehow confidence in the Prime Minister Conservative Mariano Rajoy after having refused Thursday as a warning.
The instability is likely to continue, however, since the minority government of Mariano Rajoy will indeed deal with a hostile parliament.
After two parliamentary elections in December and June, which did not reveal a majority in the Chamber of Deputies, the socialist PSOE planned to abstain Saturday when Rajoy asked for the second time the confidence of the elected.
“Chapeau, Mr. Rajoy” him Thursday launched ironically, from the podium of Congress, the elected Joan Baldoví, leader of the Civic Platform Compromise left. “You might be a movie hero.” The impassive Galician ‘Without moving a muscle, almost without doing anything, you are about to become president of the government, “he added.
Mario Rajoy, 61, in power since 2011, started from far: there are ten months, two new parties were entering in Congress, the Liberal Ciudadanos and Podemos, radical left, while its formation, the Popular Party (PP ), recorded its worst score since 1993.
In his own camp, undermined by corruption cases and worn by a hard economic crisis, some assured that his place was “in opposition”.
But new legislation, organized on June 26 after months without a new government can be invested absence of agreement between the parties began to reverse the trend.
In this election the People’s Party won 14 seats, while the Socialist Party (PSOE), competition from Podemos, continued his descent into hell, the worst result in its history (22.7% of votes).
Pedro Sanchez, leader of the PSOE since 2014, decided to do everything to chase Mariano Rajoy of power, failed to find enough allies to form an alternative government. He will finally overthrown by his own people, who feared that his veto Mariano Rajoy still leads election, the third in a year, making them even lose votes.
Now Mariano Rajoy on the rise, assured of the votes of his party (137) and those of Ciudadanos (32), and the necessary abstention of some of the 85 elected socialists.
Mariano Rajoy was not elected in a first round of voting by an absolute majority held Thursday, but it should be invested by a simple majority of 350 deputies Saturday evening in a vote expected around 19: 45 pm .
The four-year term that awaits, however, not simply because never will be a party in power in Spain had disposed of as little support in Congress 137 seats only 350. It is expected “to a legislature more turbulent than any other, “said Professor Simon Pablo political science.
