RAJOY: First PM to testify in criminal case

A VOTE of no confidence for Spain’s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy will be held this week.

The PSOE’s motion against the Partido Popular leader will be debated in Congress on Thursday before a vote takes place on Friday.

Socialist leader Pedro Sánchez will be the proposed replacement candidate for Prime Minister.

The PP has been plagued by a string of corruption cases in recent months.

Last week saw mostly PP leaders involved in the Gurtel corruption ring convicted of a combined 351 years behind bars.

Rajoy denied any wrongdoing when he became the first sitting prime minister in Spain’s history to testify in a criminal case.
