PRESIDENTE DEL GOBIERNO The head of the Spanish government, or Presidente del Gobierno, is elected not just by the winning party but by the entire Congreso de los Diputados following a general election. The Presidente is appointed for a four-year term and called upon by the King to form a cabinet. As in Britain, he has the power to call an early election, and can be forced to do so by a censure motion in the Congreso.
