Spain’s far-right party Vox filed a vote of no-confidence against the left-wing government, an attempt to oust Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez that is unlikely to succeed.

“This is the worst government in our history,” Santiago Abascal, the leader of Vox, said in a press conference on Monday after registering the motion in parliament. “Critics say this motion doesn’t have enough votes, but what we want is to shed a light on the true nature of this government.”
