Catalonia crisis: Spain considering constitutional changes


Spain is considering constitutional changes that could allow its regions to hold referendums on independence in the future. Foreign Minister Alfonso Dastis said, nationwide vote on the issue could be held in the future. The move is in recognition of the events in Catalonia, where the regional government was deposed after a unilateral declaration of independence.

He said, a committee has been set up in parliament to explore the possibility of amending the constitution to be able to accommodate better the aspirations of some of the Catalan people. Protests were held against the detention of the region’s ex-leaders.
Meanwhile, Spain’s constitutional court has ruled that the declaration of independence was unconstitutional and void.
