State of Alarm will be extended until June 7th

The Government has tonight managed to extend the State of Alarm for the fifth time, thanks to the support of other parties but the vote was close – 177 to 162. ( with 11 abstensions)

There is far more to read if you are interested in the politics and statistics here at El Pais. But it is late and really, that is all we need to know other than that it will all be published in the BOE shortly.
