Spain’s King Juan Carlos to step down for son

posted in: News | 1

The Spanish prime minister, Mariano Rajoy, says
King Juan Carlos plans to abdicate and pave the
way for his son, Crown Prince Felipe, to become
the country’s next king.
The 76-year-old Juan Carlos oversaw his
country’s transition from dictatorship to
democracy but has had repeated health problems
in recent years.
His popularity also dipped following royal
scandals, including an elephant-shooting trip he
took in the middle of Spain’s financial crisis that
tarnished the monarch’s image.
The king came to power in 1975, two days after
the death of longtime dictator Francisco Franco.
