Soraya Saenz de Santamaria, Spain’s new deputy prime minister, has been labelled the “most powerful woman since democracy” after she was given a raft of new briefs, including control of the intelligence service.

Miss Saenz de Santamaria, 40, agreed she had wide-ranging powers in the new government but said she saw them more as duties.

“I accept I have many duties. I am one of those who thinks you have to speak of duty more than powers,” she said in a news conference after the right-leaning government’s first cabinet meeting.

“I will do my utmost to handle everything, and if there is something I cannot do I will ask for help.”
