On Sunday the Spanish Socialists decided not to veto Mariano Rajoy's reelection as Prime Minister. What do Spaniards think of the end of the government crisis?
The Socialist-led government has given the dictator's family 15 days to transfer his remains. But a pretender to the French throne has vowed to stop the move, saying it represents an attack on "over half of Spain."
Spain's government has called early elections to be held in April. Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez and the Socialist party had governed for nearly eight months after a no-confidence vote ousted former PM Mariano Rajoy.
The protesters have decried the trial of 12 Catalan separatists, saying "self-determination is not a crime." Prosecutors have accused the separatists of "rising up in a violent and public manner," allegations they deny.
The failure to pass a budget vote was the last nail in the coffin of the prime minister's term, marked by bitter confrontation with right-wing parties and Catalan separatists. Santiago Saez reports from Madrid.
