Spain has a new government, Rajoy will govern in minority and be sworn in today.
https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...-mariano-rajoy

Things won't be easy though, first task will be to find a minority for the household budget. Because there wasn't any household budget/cuts Spain has been doing very well economically without government.

My guess is that with the socialists finally backing Rajoy, there will be a turning point in the political landscape like in other countries. The socialists will fade and PODEMOS and other parties will benefit.

King Felipe received the President of the Congress of Deputies, Ms. Ana Pastor and signed the appointment of Mariano Rajoy as President of the Government this morning at Zarzuela Palace:

Rajoy will swear the Constitution tomorrow in the morning in Zarzuela, his ministers will do it on Friday, and the Opening of the Cortes should be on the next week.

Yeah, no good times for Socialists, people either drift now to the left or right.

I don't think so but most people in Spain voted for MR, probably even more at a third election. So at some point the other parties had to decide what to do, portray themselves as block-outs / inflexible or bowing down to PP, it's a lose-lose situation people will hate them either way.

I suppose this paves the way for another big push for independence in Catalonia? Rajoy doesn't seem to understand what's going on there and that his intransigence only makes secession more likely, not less.

He is very stubborn and not a skilful negotiator. There are predictions (yeah, I know), that Catalonia will seperate in 2020. Let's say PPs term already ends in 2 years, again elections and I can see the Catalonians pushing even harder. And I think no one will say no anymore to a referendum.

Now that there is a government in place in Spain, can we expect the Spanish state visit to the UK to occur anytime in 2017 ?

Is there a discussion in Spain about the use of the Bible and a crucifix at the sworn-in ceremony of ministers?

What happens when a minister is non-Christian or atheïst?
