    Challenges to constitutional adjudication in spain: the autonomous state and the financial crisis (
    in Italian Papers on Federalism , Numero 3/2016 ,  2016
    The Spanish Constitution has been reformed only on two occasions up to the present day. The first reform took place in 1992 to adapt the constitutional text to the Treaty on the European Union and was limited to incorporating the addition of “and passive” to the right to suffrage that article 13.2 recognises for foreigners in municipal elections[1]. The second revision had a greater reach and occurred in 2011, incorporating the principle of budgetary balance into Article 135 of the Constitution[2], being a precursor to others that would have to follow other European countries in application of the subsequent Treaty on Stability, Coordination and Governance in the Economic and Monetary Union[3], to “calm” the markets in the context of the financial crisis[4].
