Sanchez Seeking One Month Extension To State Of Alarm

The current state of alarm in Spain is due to expire on the 24th May.  Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has announced that he is now seeking a final extension to the state of alarm, for a period of one month.  Previous extensions have all been for two weeks, though the Prime Minister has said that this latest plan may be more flexible and will not be determined by political motivations.

In this new extension, Prime Minister Sanchez said that it would only be the health ministry that maintains its authority over the Spain’s autonomous regions. Control over Interior, Transport and Defence would be returned to the regional governments.
