SPAIN 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.
