Relying on Basque nationalists, but still in power:where next for Spain's 'weak' government?

Gray, Caroline (2017). Relying on Basque nationalists, but still in power:where next for Spain's 'weak' government? London School of Economics.

Abstract

Since being returned to power following elections last year, Mariano Rajoy’s Spanish government has had to rely on the support of smaller parties, such as Ciudadanos and the Basque Nationalist Party, to pass key legislation, including the 2017 national budget. Caroline Gray assesses what this fragile political situation has meant for the country, noting that while Rajoy has so far managed to gain the alliances needed to implement core policies, this has only been achievable by granting significant concessions to the Basque Country.
