Will the stalemate surrounding the Spanish government ever be broken? Two key votes this week, and the same result...no government. Acting Prime Minister Rajoy simply can't get a majority and the opposition socialists are not helping matters. The only solution is to overhaul the Spanish electoral system either introducing a French-style presidential round of votes or the British first-past-the-post system, otherwise this stalemate will just continue for months to come. Some commentators have already said that Spain has become a laughing stock because it still doesn't have a government, eight months after the first general election. Unless there is a major change, Spain will be heading for its third election in 12 months and the outcome of even this third poll looks unlikely to give any party an overall majority. An absolute nightmare. Change is needed so that the most voted party wins:; otherwise it is just stalemate.
