Alfonso will not abdicate

April 13, 1931

King Alfonso XIII of Spain tonight informed the Madrid correspondent of the Daily Mail that "he had no intention of abdicating the throne," according to the Associated Press.  He expressed the wish that the London newspapers publish "his assertion."

The King said it is his intention "to act in strict accordance with the constitutional and royalist traditions of Spain."

Municipal elections were held yesterday in Spain.  Results are showing little support for the pro-monarchy parties.
