Spain: Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero not to stand again
02-Apr-2011 (3 comments)

Spain's Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero has said he will not seek a third term in office after parliamentary elections due next year.

Mr Zapatero, whose popularity is at an all-time low, said it was the right decision for the country, his centre-left Socialist party and his family.

He became Prime Minister in 2004 in the wake of the Madrid train bombings.

Spain's economy was booming then. It has since suffered a deep recession, and unemployment is at 20%.
