The Constitution declared Spain to be a democracy with a monarchy. It also proclaimed the absence of an official state religion, a shift towards a free market economy, partial decentralization of state to satisfy the demands for regional autonomy, and set out the basic rights and freedoms for all Spaniards. However, it is worth recognising the comparative longevity of the two characters.
Juan Carlos has been lauded as the most stable figure during a precarious period in Spanish history. Lieutenant-Colonel Antonio Tejero seized the entire Spanish political elite in the Congress of Deputies in Madrid, whilst captain-general Milans del Bosch led tanks into the streets of Valencia. He made it clear to the military that he would uphold the Constitution, appearing on television to publicly state that the military coup was an affront against the monarchy and that he would not be forced to leave Spain or abdicate.
Even after the failed coup, Juan Carlos was crucial to the maintenance of a smooth democratic transition by insisting that no resentment be harboured against the military. The transition period was officially over and Spain could now concentrate on the consolidation of democracy. Both were genuinely dedicated to dismantling the Franco regime and bringing democracy to Spain. Without their contributions, the creation of a democratic Spain would not have come to pass so quickly and peacefully. H, Rein R. Related Papers.
