Earlier, the Spanish Parliament passed a non-confidence vote to the Government of Mariano Rajoy, who has been in office since the end of 2011. A corruption scandal within the party was the reason to make this decision. It was not proved that Rajoy himself was involved in corruption schemes, he was a witness in the case. Yet, the Parliament decided to remove him from the post.
Today, on May 2, Pedro Sánchez, the Secretary-General of the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party, made an oath as a newly elected Spanish PM.
