Spain is days away from forming its first real government in 10 months, but it can't come soon enough for Susana Morales whose charity needs approval to expand an adoption service – part of a mountainous backlog of work awaiting the new administration.Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy stayed in office as a caretaker without full powers, and is now finally set to form a full-fledged minority conservative government by next weekend after his socialist opponents agreed Sunday not to block it.Morales' outstanding business is one of countless tasks piled up in the new government's inbox.Foremost in Rajoy's in-tray will be the country's budget plans for next year – a major test of the minority government's chances of eking out its four-year term in a highly fragmented parliament.To avoid European Commission fines, Spain will have to find at least 5 billion euros ($5.4 billion) in spending cuts or revenues to meet its 2017 deficit targets, and fresh austerity measures are likely to be fiercely opposed by rival parties.
