Statute of Autonomy

Statute of Autonomy III

This autonomic process, observing the Constitution requirements, will take us to the approval of the Statute of Autonomy, which is the climax of the autonomous region creation. The Statute of Autonomy is a norm that, according to the article 147 of the Spanish Constitution, must include the following terms:

  • The region denomination must correspond to the historic identity.
  • The territory organisation.
  • The denomination, organisation and central offices of the own autonomic institutions.
  • The powers assumed within the framework established in the Constitution and the basis for the transfer of their respective services.

In short, the Statute specifies the basic region's profiles, their structural principles and the power's scope. Once the text of each region is writen, the Statute must be passed by the Spanish Parliament.

The 1st June 1981 started the constituent phase of the document for Castilla y León. That is why it was created the Assembly. Some time after, the text was aprroved and would become the Statute of Autonomy in a session that took place in Salamanca, the 27th June of that same year.

The document was discussed at the Parliament but its definitive approval had to wait, as its procedures coincide with the General Elections of 1982. Finally, it was approved the 25th February 1983. Segovia province, that in October 1979 had initially decided not to be part of the autonomic process of Castilla y León, would finally be part of it after the appropriate parliamentary procedures and the approval of the Organic Law bill of 1st March 1983.
