Rajoy tells anti-royalists 'majority supports monarchy'

Spain''s King Juan Carlos (L) shakes hands with Spain''s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy after he handed over a letter of abdication, at the Zarzuela Palace in Madrid.

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has responded to the republican sentiment widespreading in the European nation, calling anti-monarchy Spaniards to turn to “legal courses” to propose a constitutional reform. Still, Rajoy affirmed the royal family keeps wide support following King Juan Carlos’ abdication.

Yesterday, thousands took to the streets of Spain to demand a vote on whether to rid the country of the monarchs, waving the flag of the Second Republic (1931-1939).

“Everyone seeking to change the rules of the game can do it. But they must use the means set by the legislation,” the PM stated as the Spanish Parliament readies for the voting that will allow 46-year-old King Felipe to take over the thrown.

Main political parties in Spain – starting with Rajoy’s Popular Party (PP) -, favour monarchy as political regime.
