Spanish Prime Minister Rajoy ousted over scandalStaff Writer | June 1, 2018
Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has lost a no-confidence vote, with a majority of lawmakers voting to remove him from office on Friday.
Europe Rajoy is no more
The vote was triggered by a scandal involving Rajoy's centre-right People's Party (PP), which saw former PP members handed jail sentences this month for their part in the long-running Operacion Guertel corruption case.
The sting looked at Spanish businessmen who were bribing PP politicians in exchange for lucrative public contracts, with the party receiving a EUR250,000 fine as a result. ■
