Executive summary: Prime Minister of Spain

General Secretary of the Spanish Socialist Worker's Party (PSOE) since 2000. His predecessor, Jose Maria Aznar, was expected to win the 2004 election when terrorist bombings by Moroccan al Qaeda cells killed nearly 200 people on Madrid trains, changing the dynamic of the election. Subsequent moves by Aznar's government were seen by voters as inept at best, and at worst dishonest. One of Zapatero's platforms has been the withdrawal of Spanish troops from Iraq.
