Spanish Prime Minster Mariano Rajoy ousted, to be replaced by Pedro Sanchez


Mariano Rajoy Spain’s Prime Minister was voted out from his office on Friday after ruling the country from 2011.

The no-confidence motion was triggered by a long-running corruption trial, also known as the Gurtel case, that involves 29 people in People’s Party (PP) Rajoy’s party.

The court found guilty the PP of benefiting economically from the corrupt network and the party received a fine of 245,492 euros.

The man that will replace him is Pedro Sanchez the leader of the Spanish Socialist Party (PSOE). He is expected to be sworn in over the weekend and the cabinet of ministers will probably be appointed during the coming week.
