MADRID (Reuters) - Spain’s parliament has fixed the date for a debate and vote of confidence in Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy for May 31 and June 1, Spain’s leading newspaper El Pais reported on Monday.

A parliamentary spokeswoman could not confirm the date.

On Friday, Rajoy was threatened with no-confidence motions and demands for a snap election over a graft trial involving members of his party in which a judge cast doubt on his testimony.
