Transcript of Spanish Government Presentation

Spanish Government By: Tishi Fernandez What Type Of Government Spain Has The Type of Government is a Constitutional Monarchy A constitutional monarchy is a government that has a King and/or Queen, but also has a Prime Minister. The Prime Minster in Spain runs the government. A constitutional monarchy also has a constitution, which limits the power of the Prime Minister and King and/or Queen. They have had that constitution since 1978. This is different from a absolute monarchy because an absolute monarchy would be that the monarch has the power in the state and is not bound by any constitution and has the powers to regulate his or her respective government What is the Title Of The Leader The title of the Prime Minister is Leader of the Government of Spain. But the people would call him Presidente in Spanish. In English that means President. The current Prime Minister is called Mariano Rajoy. He has been Prime Minister since December 21, 2011. There is no limit on how long the Prime Minister can stay, but every four years there is a re-election and depending on the majority of the "party" he or she will become Prime Minister again. What is a
"Party?" Parliament is made up of political parties .
These political parties are made up of people representing a certain district/province of the country. There are different political parties because every party has their own view/belief on how the government should be run.

Prince Felipe Princess Letizia Spanish Economic Crisis Spain is now in a financial crisis, the same as a lot of Southern European countries. They have little money right now and many Spanish banks can't pay their loans. It started around 2005, when Spain borrowed a lot of money and lent money to companies to build houses,apartments, etc. But in 2008 the companies that borrowed money could not pay the banks because they could not sell the houses, apartments, etc. Up to now houses and apartments can not be sold because people have no money.
