西班牙国王胡安·卡洛斯一世宣布退位

Spanish king abdicates, to be succeeded by Prince Felipe

King Juan Carlos of Spain is abdicating from his position as head of state on Monday.

The king's decision was announced to the nation by Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, who called a press conference at short notice on Monday to make an "institutional declaration."

In a brief declaration to the press in which he accepted no questions, Rajoy said: "His majesty the King Juan Carlos has just told me his will to renounce the thrown and to open the succession process."

Rajoy added the king would "personally communicate his decision to the Spanish people on Monday morning."

At the same time Rajoy spoke, the Spanish Royal household posted a photo on twitter showing King Juan Carlos signing the paper which saw him officially renounce the throne.

"I want to say that I have found the king convinced that this is the best moment for this change in the head of state and the transfer of the crown to the Prince of Asturias to happen," said Rajoy.

"I will call an emergency cabinet meeting Tuesday with the aim of completing the constitutional previsions," he added.

The 76-year-old monarch was named as king of Spain on Nov. 22, 1975, two days after the death of General Franco, who had nominated him as his successor.

Along with the recently deceased Adolfo Suarez, the king embarked on a process of bringing democracy to Spain and was a key figure in the failed military coup of Feb. 23, 1981 when he made a television broadcast asking for the unanimous support of the democratic government.

However, the king's popularity declined in recent years. Juan Carlos was heavily criticized for extravagant vacations while his country was suffering the economic crisis. He also suffered a series of health issues, such as a benign tumor which he had removed and a broken hip, which he suffered in April 2012 while elephant hunting in Botswana.

The monarch later took the unprecedented step of apologizing to the nation, although that did little to save his popularity from falling to the lowest levels of his reign.

Juan Carlos will be succeeded on the throne by his son, 46-year-old Felipe Juan Pablo Alfonso de Todos los Santos de Borbon, the Prince of Asturias, who will become King Felipe VI.

相关新闻:西班牙首相拉霍伊2日宣布,国王胡安·卡洛斯一世已决定退位,让位给王储费利佩。

拉霍伊当天上午在首相府的新闻发布会上说,国王刚刚向政府表明了他退位的决定。拉霍伊说,他相信费利佩王储能够胜任国家元首职务,因为王储已为继位做了充足准备,并拥有丰富的公共事务经验,能够不辜负民众的厚望。

现年76岁的胡安·卡洛斯一世1975年登基。他是西班牙民主化进程的重要推动者,并因此受到西班牙民众的广泛爱戴。

尽管目前尚无国王退位的官方解释,但有媒体报道说,胡安·卡洛斯一世退位并非因身体原因,而是出于政治上的考虑。

费利佩王储1968年1月30日在西班牙马德里出生。他精通英语、法语,在进入高等学府之前,曾在数所军事学院接受军事培训。此后,他在马德里自治大学学习法律并获得学士学位,后来又在美国华盛顿乔治敦大学国际关系学院学习并获得硕士学位。费利佩王储与电视记者莱蒂西亚·奥尔蒂斯于2004年结婚,两人育有二女。
