The new government of Spain

Here you have some information about the new Spanish government. After the general elections in November 2011, PP was the winning party. They got more deputies in the Congress and two weeks ago, after the investiture session, Mariano Rajoy was elected president of the government by the majority of representatives chosen by the citizens. Some days later Rajoy announced the number and names of the new ministers. Some of them were ministers of the last PP governments, such as Ana Pastor, Cristóbal Montoro or Miguel Arias Cañete, but the rest are new. Soraya Sáez de Santamaría is the new vice-president and spokeswoman and she accumulates a lot of power in her hands, because she is going to control the intelligence service (CNI) as well.
