  • Description

    Both the Spanish Cabinet and the Advisory Council of the Realm, the country's highest consultative body, met on Friday (2 July) for talks aimed at finding a successor to Prime Minister Carlos Arias Navarro who announced his resignation on Thursday (1 July).

    SYNOPSIS: According to Reuter's correspondent in Madrid, Senor Arias' resignation stalled Spain's reform timetable amid mounting political and economic problems. But there is also widespread speculation that King Juan Carlos, the Head of State. wants to steer Spain towards democracy at a quicker pace than Senor Arias prefers.

    The present Minister of the Interior, Manuel Fraga Iribarne, is one of the favourites being tipped for the leadership. His biggest opponent is seen as the Foreign Minister, Jose Maria de Areilza. Both men are reformists. The final decision on who will be the next Prime Minister will be made by the King.
