Il messaggio lanciato dai Podemos è chiarissimo: vogliamo più posti di ministri e sottosegretari.

Pedro Sanchez fails to gather enough votes to be appointed prime minister in first round of voting

«Spanish MPs rejected appointing Pedro Sanchez as prime minister in a first poll on Tuesday — but they will vote again in two days’ time.

Sanchez required an absolute majority from parliament in the first vote, however, in the second one, which will take place on Thursday, he only requires a simple majority.

Approval in the second vote will mostly depend on whether the Socialists and the far-left Podemos party can agree on a coalition deal.

Sanchez failed to strike a deal with Podemos leader Pablo Iglesias on Monday because the latter was still not satisfied with the latest offer by the Socialists over the granting of posts within the new government’s cabinet.

“Respect our voters and do not offer to us being a mere decoration in your government, because we will not accept it,” leader Iglesias said after talks between the parties ended without an agreement.

The Podemos leader said, however, that his party would still like to be part of the government and would like to negotiate further.

Sanchez has only been the country’s leader in an acting capacity since April after failing to win a majority in the Spanish general election.

He first became prime minister of a minority government in June last year when parliament voted out a conservative government over a corruption scandal.

On Monday, Sanchez laid out his government plans to parliament, which would focus on jobs, women’s rights, and the environment.

“This is what I will be doing in the coming days: request your confidence, appeal to your responsibility and generosity … so that Spain has a government,” Sanchez told MPs.

Employment, gender equality and fighting climate change would be his main priorities, he said.

How many votes does Sanchez need to be named prime minister?

Sanchez had to receive the support of 176 members (an absolute majority) of parliament to be confirmed as prime minister on Tuesday.»

17.30 Il premier spagnolo Sanchez non ha passato il primo voto di fiducia. Il leader socialista ha ottenuto 124 voti a favore e 170 contrari, mentre gli astenuti sono stati 52. Giovedì è programmato un nuovo voto: a Sanchez basterà la maggioranza semplice per essere incaricato premier. La sinistra radicale di Podemos si è astenuta. “Un gesto per facilitare i negoziati”, spiega la portavoce, lasciando aperto uno spiraglio per trovare un accordo per la formazione di un governo di coalizione.

Pedro Sánchez: Spain’s accidental PM on a roll

«Last year, Pedro Sánchez was lagging in the polls as the leader of Spain’s opposition, bruised by two resounding electoral defeats.

Now, after securing the first victory for his Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE) since 2008, Mr Sánchez is on the brink of being reappointed as prime minister.

To do so, Mr Sánchez needs a majority of lawmakers to vote in favour of his painstakingly-negotiated coalition government with the leftist anti-austerity Podemos party.

Parliamentary backing for his coalition would bring weeks of fractious negotiations and political turmoil to an end, giving Mr Sánchez his first full term as prime minister.

The substance of Mr Sánchez’s campaign slogan – “make it happen” – will then be put to the test.

“He has used his time in government to project an image of gravity and of being someone who is suited to the post of prime minister,” says Josep Lobera, a sociologist at Madrid’s Autonomous University (UAM) – who adds that being in government has boosted Mr Sánchez’s standing among leftist voters.

“Regardless of whether or not he’s actually managed the country effectively, he’s projected that image.”»
