Spanish prime minister warns against populist rhetoric

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has warned that populism and demagoguery would be no option out of the country’s economic situation.

In his last annual state of the nation debate on Tuesday, Rajoy warned against what he called demagoguery in politics, which according to him, would risk Spain’s plans for economic recovery and reaching welfare.

“It is not with demagoguery that we can maintain the welfare state,” Rajoy said.

The Spanish leader was clearly alluding to some emerging political parties’ continued use of populist slogans in the run-up to a series of elections in the country which could end in a huge loss for the ruling government.
