Felipe can mediate in Catalonia

Although the Spanish king has hardly any political power he can have considerable influence on the political scene, the conservative daily Lidové noviny notes, adding that Felipe VI faces several tasks in this respect: "Many hope that the new king will restore the flagging trust in the monarchy. The most recent surveys show that two-thirds of the Spaniards want a referendum on the monarchy. Around half however want to retain the monarchy. ... Felipe must make use of his right to help solve the country's problems, for example the increasingly strong separatism in Spain's richest region, Catalonia. The Catalan government has set an independence referendum for early November which the central government and the constitutional court consider illegal. Felipe, who speaks Catalan and knows the region well, could seek a constructive solution to the problem together with the political leaders."
