The president of the Spanish central government and the equivalent of the Prime Minister in the UK. Each party running for power in Spain nominates a person, usually the party leader, to become the president if that party wins the elections. He is appointed for a four-year term, and may be reelected in the next general election. However, the Congreso de los Diputados can pass a vote of censure on him, forcing him to resign and call an early election.
