Amid all the criticism that this is a radical government in league with communists , separatists and republicans, it is nice of Casa Real to remind us that, in accordance with the Spanish constitution ,

1. Pedro Sanchéz’s candidacy was proposed by the King through the President ( Speaker) of the Congress of Deputies after meetings with the different political groups .

2. After receiving the backing of a plurality of the deputies in a second round of voting, Pedro Sánchez was appointed prime minister ( presidente del gobierno) by royal decree countersigned by the president of the Congress of Deputiies ( that was actually the purpose of the audience described in the link).

In other words, in the modern Spanish constitution , the government of Spain is not “ His Majesty’s government “ as in the UK ( or perhaps in Denmark ?) , but it is clear that the King is still an integral part of the process of government formation, even when we are presented with a government where several ministers , ncluding the deputy prime minister, once refused to even meet with the King .

Constitutional monarchy is indeed extraordinary !

Yes, according to current legislation they have to promise loyalty to the King and the Constitution. Probably Pablo and his people will add something ... type "for legal imperative" or any such nonsense.
