- Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy speaks Wednesday at noon with the leader of the socialist party PSOE, Pedro Sánchez, reported the Spanish news agency Europa Press. Without an agreement between these two politicians seems a new government Rajoy impossible. Some observers hold Rajoy responsible for the economic recovery that seems to come on stream in Spain.
Rajoy of the conservative People's Party (PP), which has ruled since 2011 with an absolute majority in the Spanish parliament. That majority is the PP lost in the parliamentary elections on Sunday. The old PSOE lost a lot of seats.
Rajoy's PP has about 123 of the 350 seats in the Spanish Lower House, the Congress of Deputies. The PSOE ninety. Without the support of the Socialists seems to Rajoy not allow itself to form a new government.
