IT’S a ‘staycation’ this year for Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, who will spend his holiday close to home.
The PP leader and his cabinet normally all go on holiday during the month of August, but this year, forthcoming elections require his team to remain nearby and on call.
Processing of the national budget will begin in August, two months earlier than usual, in order to finish the amendment and approval process before Parliament dissolves in October, prior to national elections in December.
It’s not all work and no play, however; Rajoy plans to holiday in Donana and Galicia with his family.
