April 15, 2012

Jose Antonio Monago, regional president of Extremadura and member of the governing People’s Party, said Spain may need to rewrite its 1978 constitution to stop regional governments hemorrhaging cash, El Mundo reported.

“There have been tremendous errors, such as expanding to infinity their functions and spending has been uncontrolled and irrational,” Monago told the newspaper in an interview published today. “The constitution shouldn’t be untouchable. We shouldn’t be afraid.”
