Spain allows lawmakers to speak Catalan, Basque and Galician languages in Parliament

  • Spain's Parliament has revised its linguistic policy to allow national legislators to use minority languages such as Catalan, Basque, and Galician, a long-held objective of smaller parties from the regions in Spain's north.
  • The change aims to normalize the use of languages other than Spanish in the national Parliament and was strongly supported by the Socialist Party. Opposition conservatives argued that the reform would make debating more difficult.
  • As acting Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez seeks to form a new left-wing government, he is hoping to gain the backing of nationalist and separatist parties from Catalonia and the Basque Country. The recognition of Catalan, Basque, and Galician as languages used in the European Union is also being pursued by Spain's government.
