A new era lies ahead for Spain. A vote of no-confidence to oust Mariano Rajoy has been successful, something that was unthinkable ten days ago.

Yesterday, the Catalan pro-independence parties and the Basque Nationalists confirmed their Yes votes. The result: Rajoy’s six-and-a-half years in power are over.
