Spain's PM Will Not Resign Ahead of No-Confidence Vote

Spain's PM Will Not Resign Ahead of No-Confidence Vote
Spain’s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy is currently under investigation over allegations of corruption and other forms of wrongdoing by his party. This morning, he addressed the country's lower house of parliament as a part of two-day proceedings, which will conclude with a vote over the official's future in the government.

"Mariano Rajoy will not resign," the Secretary-General of People's Party (PP), Maria Dolores de Cospedal said in a press conference on the sidelines of a discussion in parliament ahead of the vote.

Spain’s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy got into hot water after the motion filed by leader of Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE) Pedro Sánchez, who possibly installed his candidacy for the position, at least for an interim period. The Basque political party, as well as pro-independence Catalan parties, supported the no-confidence vote brought over a corruption case.
