The controversial decision, part of a deal with the separatist party Junts for government support, has sparked widespread protests and caused a stir among the people.
Critics argue that this move prioritizes political self-interest over the rule of law. Demonstrations took place in major cities like Madrid, Barcelona, Granada, Seville, Malaga, Palma, and Valencia.
Many protesters, waving Spanish and EU flags and signs calling for respect of the constitution, are demanding fresh elections and the resignation of acting Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez. The move led to widespread public dissatisfaction, revealing a deep divide among the Spanish citizens.
