Introduction & Updates in National Landscape

The motion of censure presented by Vox against Pedro Sánchez took place at the beginning of March. The initiative was proposed as a candidate for president of the Government of Ramón Tamames, a historical politician of the Communist Party, and has been rejected with the only votes in favor of the deputies of Vox and a former deputy of Ciudadanos. The motion has failed with 201 votes against and 53 in favor.
