Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez on Thursday denied allegations he plagiarized his doctoral thesis as he battles a raft of problems in a week that has seen him lose his health minister over similar reports of academic irregularities.
The information appearing in certain media claiming the existence of plagiarism in my doctoral thesis is absolutely FALSE, Socialist Sánchez tweeted just two days after Carmen Montón quit as health minister amid reports of irregularities in how she obtained her degree.
Spanish media said Montón had been awarded grades without attending classes and that her final project contained plagiarized passages charges she denied.
I shall take legal action to defend my honor and dignity if what has been published is not rectified, Sánchez said, referring to a front-page story by conservative daily ABC saying Sánchez used cut and paste to produce his doctoral dissertation.
The article claimed the premiers paper on innovations in Spanish economic diplomacy, written in 2012 when he was a professor of economics in Madrid, included sections lifted almost word for word from an article by fellow economists as well as a presentation by a former industry minister.
Online conservative paper OK Diario similarly accused Sánchez of plagiarism.

Might be that Spain’s socialist rule this time could be short-lived. They sure did a number on Rajoy; turnabout is fair play as the saying goes.
