Keep politics out of Bank of Spain, says PP leader

People's Party (PP) leader Mariano Rajoy said on Wednesday 8 March that he does not agree that Miguel Angel Fernandez Ordoez, the current secretary of state for internal revenue, should be the next governor of the Bank of Spain.

Rajoy said this was because "that post should not be occupied by a politician with a party card."

According to Rajoy, who was quoted by The Spain Herald, the Zapatero administration "is excessively politicizing the institutions, which is very foolish and a great error."
