Spain's king asks acting PM Rajoy to form government

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy speaks at a press conference at the Moncloa Palace in Madrid on October 25, 2016 after a meeting with the Spanish King Felipe VISpain’s king on Tuesday tasked Mariano Rajoy with forming a new government, taking the acting conservative prime minister a step closer to power again after a 10-month political deadlock. “I accepted the task,” Rajoy told reporters, saying he would now submit himself to a parliamentary vote of confidence which he is almost certain to win after the Socialists opted to abstain — giving him enough traction to get through. This means Spain should finally get a government next week, capping a rollercoaster 10 months that saw the country go through two inconclusive elections which Rajoy’s Popular Party (PP) won both times, but without enough seats to rule alone.
