Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez received this week a group of 52 young Spaniards at Moncloa Palace to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Spanish Constitution.
At the meeting, Sánchez stressed the importance that the Magna Carta had on Spain’s transition to democracy, and explained the need to reform it to adapt it to the 21st Century.
The youngsters, all of whom will be 18 this year and come from each of Spain’s 52 provinces, each received a copy of the Constitution from the Prime Minister.
According to Moncloa, the group “represents the social reality of Spain, equally divided among men and women, that stand out in terms of their social, academic, artistic or sporting profile, made up of young people from the countryside, cities and islands, of different types of families and social origins, as well as with different vocational orientations.”
