BBC NEWS | Europe | Basques set for landmark handover

The Basque region of Spain is set to swear in its first non-nationalist government in three decades.

The Socialist Party (PSE) and the centre-right Popular Party (PP) agreed last week to govern together.

The deal came after Basque nationalists failed to win an absolute majority in an election in March. The PSE's Patxi Lopez will head the new government.

Security in the Basque capital Vitoria is tight, as Eta separatists have threatened the incoming government.
