After nearly a year of political turmoil, Spanish parliamentary majority secures Pedro Sánchez' position as Prime Minister

The Spanish Congress of Deputies has elected the social-democratic Socialist Party PSOE’s leader Pedro Sánchez as Prime Minister of Spain, finally ending ten months of political deadlock. After two general elections held in April and November of 2019, Sánchez and the PSOE have managed to gain the support of the left-wing Podemos party, which will participate in a coalition government with the socialists, as well as Basque and Catalan secessionist parties and minority regional forces. Prime Minister Sánchez will be ruling the Spanish government for the next four-year term and, according to several media reports, key appointments of the new cabinet will be announced very soon.
