ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy faces a motion of no confidence on Tuesday (June 13) tabled by the anti-austerity Podemos 'We Can' party following several high profile political scandals linked to Rajoy's ruling People's Party. Podemos, which has its roots in widespread protests during Spain's economic crisis and took around a fifth of the vote in last year's two elections, does not have the numbers to pass the motion by themselves. In her opening speech, Podemos speaker in parliament Irene Montero said to Rajoy that "Spain is tired of being robbed by you". "Your eyes look tired of looking the other way and tired of being at the head of a party that has more members investigated for corruption in its ranks than the members of this congress and of the senate put together."
