SPANISH Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy would not stay on as Prime Minister if the People’s Party (PP) doesn’t win the December 20 General Election, he said on Monday.

During a press conference, Rajoy said: “If my party does not win the most votes, I won’t run for Prime Minister.”

Spain’s economic crisis and unemployment could mean a loss in support polls for the PP. However, the economy is headed in a positive direction and the country´s tourism industry is on a very high rise, meaning there is room for optimism that’s been missing for some time.


A recent series of high profile corruption cases could potentially damage the PP’s credibility, as the party has not been tough enough on corruption within its own ranks.

Ciudadanos and anti-austerity Podemos parties have gained more votes in recent polls.
