Spanish parliament dissolved 4 months early

Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero has dissolved the Spanish parliament in preparation for a general election in November.

The Prime Minister signed a decree dissolving the parliament and informed King Juan Carlos.

It is thought that the opposition Popular Party will lead a new government following the election which is penned in for November 20th.

Zapatero said in July that he would not run for re-election after eight years in power.

Zapatero’s party lost much of it’s traditional support base due to their unpopular austerity measures and the opposition has gained a record lead, according to opinion polls.

Zapatero told reporters he was confident in future saying “I know that sooner rather than later we will overcome the current difficulties,”
