The New President

On Friday, Pedro Sánchez became the new president of Spain, after his no-confidence vote against Mariano Rajoy succeeded. Sánchez' support came from most of the opposition parties: Unión Podemos, the ERC and PDCat from Catalonia and the PNV and Bildu from the Basque Country. Ciudadanos loyally supported the PP (no doubt in the hope of a cock-up sooner or later). Now comes a new set of ministers and secretaries and so on.
Sánchez won with a national clamour against corruption, endemic in Spanish politics. We hope he can address this issue soonest.
