Rajoy ousted as Spain’s Prime Minister following no confidence vote defeat

MARIANO RAJOY, the Spanish Prime Minister since 2011, has left office after lawmakers voted to pass a no confidence motion against him.

The Prime Minister was defeated in the left-leaning Partido Socialista (PSOE)-proposed vote which was backed by 180 members in the 350-seat Congress of Deputies.

Rajoy said: “It has been an honour to be president of the government and to leave Spain better than how I found it.”
