Spanish Primer Minister Mariano Rajoy appeared before the press for the first time since being fingered by former PP party treasurer Luis Barcenas as one of the recipients of an alleged slush fund. Rajoy, who has been under increasing pressure to resign as Prime Minister from the opposition ever since Barcenas' information concerning his supposed involvement in the case was published by the "El Mundo" newspaper, claimed that he would fulfill his term until December 2015, adding that the government would not lose sight of its objective, which is to get the country out of the difficult economic situation which its currently going through.

When asked about a series of text messages exchanged between the Prime Minister and Barcenas, Rajoy answered that they were proof that the government had not caved in to blackmail and went on to say that the head of the government could not be constantly answering to every allegation made against him.
