Spain's parliament debates no-confidence vote to oust govt

MADRID – Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez is facing a no-confidence debate in parliament brought by the nation’s far-right Vox party, but it appears the maneuver lacks the necessary votes to topple the government. The parliament is hearing arguments for and against the motion on Wednesday before a vote scheduled for Thursday.

Vox argues that Sánchez’s government must depart for what the party says is the poor handling of the pandemic by authorities.If the no-confidence vote were to succeed, it would replace the current left-wing coalition government with one led by Vox leader Santiago Abascal. The leading opposition party, the conservative Popular Party, however, has already said it won't back Vox.
