Best Answer

The Presidente del Gobierno (President of the Government) is Mariano Rajoy Brey.

According to the spanish constitution (section 98):

1. The Government shall consist of the President, Vice-Presidents, when appropriate, Ministers and other members as may be created by law.

2. The President shall direct the Governments' action and coordinate the functions of the other members thereof, without prejudice to the competence and direct responsibility of the latter in the discharge of their duties.

The King nominates a person for Presidente del Gobierno, but he is approved by the Congress of Deputies. The King is head of state and commander and chief of the Spanish armed forces

That position has never been titled Prime Minister since the advent of a Constitutional Monarchy. The title Presidente del Gobierno is a provision of the Spanish Constitution of 1978. He is the Head of Government as opposed to King Juan Carlos I who is the Chief of State.

Currently: The Presidente del Gobierno of Spain is Mariana Rajoy Brey. He has been the head of the government of the country since 2011. (It is worth noting that the proper way to address him is using his first surname, i.e. Mr. Rajoy, not Mr. Brey.)
