Spanish PM loses bid for second term

Spain’s acting Prime Minister, Mariano Rajoy, has lost a parliamentary bid for a second term in office.

The failure to secure the position deepens the country’s political crisis after two inconclusive elections.

Mr Rajoy, leader of the conservative Popular Party (PP), secured the backing of 170 representatives in the 350-strong assembly after failing to win support from the opposition.

Mr Rajoy, 61, needed a majority of at least 176 votes in parliament, but secured only the votes of the PP’s 137 lawmakers with the backing of 33 others.
