In the text of the institutional declaration proposed this Thursday by the PP in the Castilian-Manchego Parliament, “any secessionist pretension leading to the self-determination of any territory in Spain.” “It is simply impossible and the sooner it is made clear the better (…). It has no moral basis and violates the principle of equality before the law of all Spaniards,” he adds.
