What will you do, Mr Rajoy?

Will Spanish PM Mariano Rajoy be able to react and take initiatives against the institutional and moral crises in all Spain and against the territorial crisis with Catalonia? He should, because the fear of political instability begins to be an obstacle to the economic recovery. 

It is not reasonable that, with an unemployment rate above 20%, the CIS’s Economic Confidence Index (35.7 in a 1-100 scale) is above the Political Confidence Index (30.4).

It is not reasonable either that the president of the government is committed to maintain a ministerial team in which none of its members gets more than 3 points in the CIS survey. Even the best considered member of his cabinet, the vice president, obtains a qualification of 2.92.
