King Boosts Focus On Economy

King Juan Carlos called on political leaders to find consensus on Spain’s challenges, particularly the economy and sky-high unemployment.

His Majesty, who has been recovering from an operation, also invited television cameras into his office this month to become more visible amid sagging poll numbers.

Spain’s statistics agency found in new research that Spaniards are increasingly concerned about the role of their monarchy.

The Crown has also gone down in ranking among the country’s esteemed institutions, something that has worried government officials and led Spanish Television to air stories on the King’s role in fomenting Democracy.

Media outlets reported that Don Juan Carlos will reduce his international activities to focus on domestic issues. He said he wants to have more meetings with business and community leaders.
