Spanish cabinet to discuss King Juan Carlos’s abdication

The Spanish cabinet is to discuss the next steps in the process of King Juan Carlos’s abdication and the accession of his son, Crown Prince Felipe, the BBC reports.

The king announced on Monday his intention to abdicate after nearly 40 years on the throne.

Ministers will discuss the steps needed to approve Crown Prince Felipe’s accession to the throne.

Juan Carlos was seen as popular for much of his reign, but recently many Spaniards have lost confidence in him.

Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said the cabinet would consider “constitutional measures” needed to clear the way for the succession.
