Spain's conservative government appeared doomed Thursday to lose a no-confidence vote in Parliament, with the center-left Socialist party poised to take power.The impending downfall of Rajoy's government after ruling for nearly eight years came just days after the Popular Party's reputation was badly damaged by a court verdict that identified it as a beneficiary of a large kickbacks-for-contracts scheme.Rajoy responded by accusing Sanchez of a power grab.Sanchez promised to abide by a national budget recently negotiated by Rajoy.Sanchez appeared to have the absolute majority in the Congress of Deputies – 176 of 350 seats – required to unseat Rajoy.Rajoy had labeled that prospect a "Frankenstein government".
