5 Things You Need To Know

– Llorenç Córdoba, president of the Consell Insular de Formentera, has criticized the decision of the president of the Congress of Deputies, Francina Armengol.
– The criticism is due to Armengol preventing a vote on an amendment to the Spanish Constitution that would eliminate the term ‘disabled’ and include a request for a senator for Formentera.
– Córdoba has called this a historical demand for the island and has been paralysed for over two and a half years in the Congress of Deputies.
– Formentera is the only island with its own institutions that does not have its own senator, which is due to the island’s previous inclusion in the Consell Insular de Eivissa y Formentera in the original Spanish constitution.
– Córdoba has urged the need for constitutional reform to ensure Formentera has its own representation in the Spanish Senate.
