Socialist Zapatero Wins Presidential Re-election

Spanish Prime Minister Jose Zapatero was re-elected Sunday following a term that saw the legalization of same-sex marriage and on-demand divorce in the predominantly Roman Catholic Spain. Zapetero's victory was by a narrow margin of 43.7 percent of the vote to the conservative Popular Party's 40.1 percent.

One of Zapatero's first acts as president following his first election was to pull troops out of Iraq. In his second term Zapatero plans to correct Spain's slumping economy.
