Spanish unemployment fell by nearly eight percent in 2015 from the previous year, the labour ministry said on Tuesday.

The number of jobless dropped by 354,203 to 4.04 million, the largest annual decline ever.

The labour ministry does not publish an unemployment rate, but national statistics office Ine put the rate at 20.18 percent in the third quarter.

"The trend is very good," Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy told Cope radio. "What we need to do now is to persevere."

The fight against unemployment featured large in Rajoy's platform ahead of December 20 elections, in which his party lost its parliamentary majority.

In December alone, the number of jobless fell by 55,790, mostly thanks to temporary services jobs created during the festive season.

Spain was hit hard by the global financial crisis, experiencing five difficult years of on-off recession that saw unemployment rocket from a low of around eight percent in 2007 to a high of 27 percent in 2013.

Even after last year's drop, Spanish unemployment is still the highest in the eurozone after Greece's.
