MADRID, June 2. /ITAR-TASS/. King Juan Carlos I of Spain has decided to abdicate, Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said on Monday. Rajoy added that the reasons for the monarch’s abdication will be outlined in a special announcement to be released later.
The prime minister said that the process of Spain’s Crown Prince Felipe’s accession to the throne has been launched following the King’s abdication.
