Spain's acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy wins support from centrists, Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, Socialists (PSOE) ,spain general election, span opinion poll, spanish opinion poll 2016

Mariano Rajoy, Spain’s caretaker prime minister, boosted his prospects of remaining in office when, after eight months of deadlock, a centrist party agreed to back him in parliamentary confidence votes this week.

The pact unveiled on Sunday between Mr Rajoy’s conservative Partido Popular and the Ciudadanos movement comes after the dogged prime minister had struggled to win the backing of any of his rivals for months.

Without further support, Mr Rajoy will have to fight a third general election within a year — following inconclusive votes in December and June that left the PP with most seats in Spain’s lower house of parliament, but well short of a majority.


But the deal with Ciudadanos, which had previously insisted on his resignation, is likely to bolster his reputation as a survivor.

Despite his failures to triumph at the last two polls, Mr Rajoy, who only won a general election at his third attempt in 2011, has ridden out a series of corruption scandals affecting in his party, remaining firmly at the helm of the PP.

On Wednesday, Mr Rajoy faces an investiture vote in parliament. With the backing of Ciudadanos he can rely on the support of 170 MPs, six short of the total he needs for an absolute majority. If he loses, which is widely expected, a second vote on Friday would take place in which he would require just a simple majority.

With the opposition Socialist so far refusing to countenance even abstaining in Friday’s vote, Mr Rajoy looks likely to fail and on Saturday conceded that the prospect of forming a government was “more a wish than a fact”.

The failed investiture votes would trigger the countdown to fresh elections, which could fall on Christmas Day.

Mr Rajoy lost his majority last December amid allegations of slush funds run for party members and kickbacks from construction contracts that helped persuade voters to back fledgling parties such as Ciudadanos and the leftwing Podemos party.

Spain PM Mariano Rajoy agreed to discuss 2017 budget proposal with rivals Ciudadanos,  Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy ,Spain budget 2017 news updates, Citizens, Albert Rivera

At Wednesday's news conference, Rajoy announced the PP had drafted a list of ten policy proposals to form the basis of any coalition talks, and that he and Rivera had agreed to discuss the most pressing, the 2017 national budget, plans for which need to be presented to Brussels by mid-October.

Spain's acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said on Wednesday his People's Party (PP) and smaller rival Ciudadanos had taken a first step towards unfreezing deadlocked Spanish politics by agreeing to discuss a 2017 budget proposal due in mid-October.

Rajoy said a day earlier that Spain may have to hold its third election in under a year if parties such as the Socialists continued their steadfast opposition to his centre-right PP and its efforts to form a government.

Spain has been under a caretaker administration for nearly eight months after a December election stripped the PP of its majority in parliament and coalition talks were inconclusive. Another election in June also failed to result in a government.

"This is a first step and, as you know, even the longest journey always starts with a first step," Rajoy told a news conference after meeting Ciudadanos (Citizens) leader Albert Rivera.

Spain Elections: Rajoy PP Grand Coalition Alliance Government Socialist Coalicion Canaria PP, Coalition talks with Socialists, Spain alliance news, Spain Election News, Spain Government Formation, Spain News 2016

Latest on Spain Government Formation

  1. Socialist party leader ruled out supporting  PM Mariano Rajoy's People's Party (PP). “We will vote against (Mariano) Rajoy as a prime ministerial candidate,” Sanchez said after a nearly hour-and-a-half meeting with the acting PM.
  2. Can lead to third election after seven months of uncertainty.
  3. Mr Rajoy said he would try to form a new government if asked by the king. The PP is the largest party in parliament but cannot form a coalition.
  4. On July 19, the Congress of Deputies will meet for its first session, and then will consult with King Felipe VI. I think, in the last week of July — the first week of August the vote on Rajoy candidacy will likely to take place," Rivera said

Options left for Government formation

  1. To help put PP Ciudadanos Party and atleast 6 Independents or smaller parties need to support PP. But this would lead to highly unstable governement.
  2. Other option is that PP gets backed by PSOE or the Socialists, but even this looks bleak since it is one of the main rival parties and it would be against the mandate of the people who votes for PSOE.
  3. Third and most dreaded option would be an election again in Spain, which can lead to instability in the country and bad for its economy.

Spain Election results Live VotingWhat Rajoy's PP Party is doing to Form Majority Government and end instability.

  1. Centre-Right People's Party failed to get an absolute majority, they took 33% of the vote, up from 29% in the December election. Now PP has 137 seats in the 350-member, Mr Rajoy will remain prime minister Or head of a coalition or minority administration.
  2. The prime minister tried to form Alliance with Socialiststo form “grand coalition” but Socialist leaders rejected that.
  3. Brexit also had an effect on Spain elections as Spain’s stockmarket fell by 12.4% on June 24th
  4. Mr Rajoy became prime minister in 2011 with Spain deep in recession and had set it on the path to economic recovery, by cleaning up the banks and reforming the labour market.

     
  5. Rajoy is trying to form Coalition with other smaller parties and had met head of the regional government of the Canary Islands, Fernando Clavijo, who also heads Coalicion Canaria party.
  6. The Popular Party won 137 seats in last weekend's vote – the most of any party and 14 more than in December but still not enough for an absolute majority in the 350-seat assembly.
  7. To form a government the PP needs the backing of either its longtime Socialist opponents, who came second in the poll, or that of fourth-placed business friendly party Ciudadanos and several smaller groups.
  8. At the very least, Rajoy would need the other parties to agree to abstain in a confidence vote to allow a minority PP government to function.
  9. The result leaves Spain in confusion and instability, with a coalition government now necessary to reach 176 seats.Rajoy has already expressed a desire to negotiate with the PSOE.

Ciudadanos  Party might agree to support PP on one condition that Rajoy is not the PM candidate.

Current Situation in Spain with Results.

Party Seats 2016 Vote% 2016 Seats 2015 Vote% 2015 Swing (2016 vote% – 2015 vote%)
PP 137 33% 122 28.72% 4.28%
PSOE (Socialists) 85 23% 90 22.01% 1.01%
Unidos Podemos 71 21% 69 20.66% 1.66%
Ciudadanos  32 13% 40 13.93% -0.93%
Others 25 10% 29 14.68% -4.68%

Looking at the Election Results it is clear that PP gained on vote % of Other smaller parties and Independents. From 2015 PP seats were by 15 seats. Still it is not a clear majority and it would need support of atleast in all 176 members which is 39 short of the magic numbers.

The outgoing conservative Popular Party (PP) had based much of its campaign on trying to counter the rise of the upstart, emphasising the need for "stability" in the face of "populism" — and it reinforced this message Friday after Brexit. 

But according to a wide-ranging exit poll for public television TVE, it may only have won up to 121 parliamentary seats, far below the 176 needed for an absolute majority and even lower than the 123 it won in December.

Unidos Podemos, meanwhile, looked poised to secure 91 to 95 seats, and the Socialists 81 to 85, according to the poll.

But this also resulted in a 350-seat parliament so splintered that parties failed to agree on a coalition, prompting today's repeat vote. The general election in December had seen Podemos and centre-right upstart Ciudadanos uproot the country's two-party dominance in an unprecedented result. 

All eyes will now be on subsequent coalition negotiations, with political leaders under more pressure this time to form some sort of government and avoid a third round of elections. 

Throughout the campaign — and again on Friday after the Brexit vote — the PP had hammered away at the need for stability in reference to the rise of Unidos Podemos, which like Greece's ruling Syriza party rejects EU-backed austerity and pledges to fight for the least well-off.

The four main parties — the conservative PP, the socialist PSOE, the liberal Ciudadanos and the radical-left Podemos — failed to come together to form a government, even though some of them (mainly PSOE and Ciudadanos) certainly tried. Since the parties weren’t able to form a coalition government, Spain will hold a new election.

The December election gave the Mariano Rajoy's ruling center-right Popular Party 123 seats in the 350-member Congress, while PSOE got 90, followed by two new parties in the national scene, Podemos with 69 seats, and Ciudadanos with 40.

Third election tentative date – 26th December 2016
Mariano Rajoy was proposed as candidate by King Felipe VI on 28 July, with Rajoy's investiture session starting on 30 August and a first round of voting scheduled for the next day. As a result, the date for a possible new election would tentatively be set for Christmas Day, 25 December 2016, in the event no candidate is able to obtain the confidence of the Congress of Deputies before 31 October

Official results give the PP 137 seats in the 350-seat parliament and the PSOE 85 – confounding an earlier exit poll suggesting the Socialists would slip into third place.Unidos Podemos have won 71 and Ciudadanos 32. Both parties are relative newcomers to the Spanish political scene.
