Which royal house will be next in line to win the 2019 Nobel Prize?
The next king of the United Kingdom may have to wait a little longer to become king of Spain.
The country’s royal house is scheduled to hold a vote next week, as Spain’s Popular Party seeks to gain control of the country’s legislative chambers for the first time since the Spanish Civil War.
But a spokesman for Spain’s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said that he expects the royal house to back the Popular Party, despite widespread opposition to the ruling party.
The vote was expected to take place this weekend, according to Spanish media reports.
But Prime Minister Rajoy did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Spain’s parliament has held four times since May, the most recent vote coming on July 6.
The Spanish Parliament’s governing coalition, which has led the government since 2014, has yet to decide which party to support in the vote.
