Mariano RajoySPAIN is finally on the verge of forming a new government after ten months of political deadlock.

After losing a parliamentary vote of confidence on Thursday, acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy is expected to win a second such vote tomorrow, opening the way to a minority conservative government.

The embattled PSOE have said they will abstain from tomorrow’s vote, in which Rajoy will only need more votes in favour than against.

Although he will form a new government, opposition parties have promised the conservative leader that he will face a tough second term.

During a heated debate on Thursday, the leftist Podemos party, led by Pablo Iglesias, stormed out of the chamber.

They promised they would not give him a free hand to govern and vowed to fight his austerity policies.
