The Vice President of the Government of Spain, Vicepresidente del Gobierno in Spanish, is the second in command to the Prime Minister of Spain, filling in for him when he is absent or incapable of exercising his power.
Being a constitutional monarchy, the government of Spain is headed by a Prime Minister, but the official title in Spanish is Presidente del Gobierno, literally President of the Government.

 Dissenting opinion of Vice-President Weeramantry - Case concerning Fisheries Jurisdiction (Spain v. Canada)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
It is to be noted, in the first place, that, though Canada acted as it did in terms of certain Canadian legislation, the Court can determine the issues before it at the present stage of these proceedings without needing to pronounce upon the compatibility of Canada's legislation with international law.
Even the more limited question of the non-opposability of Canadian legislation to Spain is not essential to the determination of the issues before the Court at this stage.
This is not to speak of assertions of a series of specific acts committed outside Canada's 200-mile zone, including the use of water cannon and the cutting of trawl net cables which, according to Spain, have had the effect of endangering the safety of life at sea in violation of international regulations and covenants.
