    Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, Spain's prime minister, has called for early general elections.

    Analysts say it is aimed at giving his socialist party successor a better chance against the conservative front runner.

    The country joins its Euro counterparts in dealing with a faltering economy and while its unemployment has dropped slightly, one in five citizens are still without a job.

    People are now resorting to extraordinary measures to find work. Highly skilled people are playing down their qualifications to avoid being overqualified for jobs.
