SPAIN’S new prime minister will serve out the rest of the current term until elections in June 2020.
Pedro Sanchez, who ousted conservative leader Mariano Rajoy in a no-confidence vote last month, said he will not call for a snap election in a bid to ‘normalise’ the country’s political climate.
“I plan to call elections in 2020, when the term of office ends,” he stated this week.
It comes after the PSOE leader had hinted that he would call an election immediately after replacing Rajoy as PM.
Despite repeated calls from opposition parties for an election, PSOE’s ministers have said they need time to enact their policies.
