Baku-APA. An opinion in Spain published Wednesday showed the gap between the Popular Party (PP) and the main opposition Socialist (PSOE) party closed by 10 points since the last general election in November 2011, APA reports quoting Xinhua.

The monthly poll published by the Center for Sociological Investigation said the PP's lead over the PSOE shrunk to 4.8 percent.

If a general election had taken place in January, the PP would have polled 35 percent of the vote, which is 9.62 percent down on the general election, while the PSOE would have taken 30.2 percent of the vote, 1.47 percent up on their disastrous election showing.

Meanwhile, only 16 percent of Spaniards said they had confidence in Mariano Rajoy's ability to govern the country.

No member of Rajoy's government seems to be valued by Spanish voters, with Agriculture Minister Miguel Arias Canete and Foreign Affairs Minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo the best rated at 3.34 and 3.25 points respectively. Jose Ignacio Wert, the minister for education, culture and sport, had an approval rating of just 1.95.

The study said the left-wing Izquierda Unida party can currently count on 9.4 percent of the vote, while UPyD, a center-right party has the support of 6.8 percent of Spaniards, a figure that is likely to rise as Rajoy's popularity and credibility continue to decline.
