Congress to debate vote of no confidence in Pedro Sanchez

Written by on October 21, 2020

The coalition government will face a significant parliamentary test today, as the Vox led vote of no confidence debate begins in the Congress of Deputies.

Far right Vox party leader Santiago Abascal has tabled the motion, saying that the governments handling of the coronavirus pandemic amounts to “criminal mismanagement”.

However the motion is not expected to pass, as other opposition parties have sought to distance themselves from the vote or have refused to comment on whether they would support a Vox led administration.

The final vote is expected tomorrow.
