ACTING, former and most likely future Spanish prime minister, Mariano Rajoy, made a special appearance in Torremolinos on October 6 with the Euro Weekly News on site to cover the event.
Rajoy and justice minister Rafael Catala were addressing the 12th Legal Congress of Lawyers at the Palacio de Congresos in the Costa del Sol town.
Considered one of the most important annual conferences on the Spanish political calendar, the conference gave Rajoy an opportunity to promote his party as the only one capable of holding office, after his Socialist rival Pedro Sanchez resigned over the weekend.
Traffic in Torremolinos and on the A-7 motorway ground to a standstill in anticipation of Rajoy’s visit and he briefly spoke to the huddled press core stating that he had no desire or intention to see the country go to a third election.
Describing the very prospect as a “nonsense” Rajoy stressed that Spain needs a government “urgently” and said that he would not attach any conditions should the Socialists wish to join him in a coalition, a sly gesture from the old political fox.
