SPAIN’S Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez, has admitted he has doubts over whether he will remain in power for the 2019 election.

Sanchez has said he hopes to remain in power for the general election next autumn, but admitted it will not be easy following a series of setbacks last week.

The Prime Minister’s week included the resignation of one judge, Manuel Marchena, from the race to chair Spain’s Supreme Court.


Later, Sanchez’s Justice Minister, Dolores Delgado, was admonished by the Senate for the second time since she was appointed. The Premier’s week ended with tough negotiations with Theresa May over Brexit and the future of Gibraltar.

Supporters of Pedro Sanchez say he is unlikely to have been affected by the tough week, as he has, “an accredited capacity for resistance.”

The Prime Minister himself commented, “the Government is governing and will continue to govern. Let everyone take their time because there will be a few months ahead, many months.”
