King Felipe today tapped Acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy to continue leading Spain’s government.
Rajoy’s Popular Party has won two elections, but not enough to form a government on its own.
In recent weeks, Socialists decided to allow Rajoy to stay in power, breaking a months-long political stalemate.
Yesterday and today, the King met with the leaders of numerous parties to set the stage for a vote in parliament.
The King has summoned political leaders to Zarzuela Palace several times in recent months amid the impasse.
