Spain’s Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, yesterday confirmed the extension of anti-crisis measures to combat the cost of living crisis. Among the measures which will be extended until the end of September is the 20-cent subsidy on a litre of petrol.

As well as the petrol subsidy, other measures that will be extended for three months include a reduction in electricity tax, an increase in the minimum basic income and a ban on rent increases over 2%.

Sánchez made the announcement as part of a speech to mark the fourth anniversary of the no-confidence vote that put Mariano Rajoy’s PP out of government in 2018 . “For four years, Spain has had an exemplary government,” he said, attacking the PP for not offering support for his anti-crisis measures. “Let’s see if those who say they love Spain show it by loving Spaniards and voting for measures that are good for Spaniards.”
