On Sunday the Prime Minister said that he was planning to introduce co-governance procedures with regional authorities as part of the return to normality.
In his weekly meeting with the regional leaders, he outlined his plans, as well as formally informing regional leaders of his intention to issue a further extension to the state of alarm.

That news was met with some resistance from some regional leaders. Catalan regional president Quim Torra has asked for full autonomy in deciding the levels of restrictions, whilst the Basque regional leader was critical of the government in Madrid, but said he was willing to cooperate.
Regional presidents from the PP – the main opposition party – also voiced their disapproval of the plans.
