The highly controversial tourist tax could be approved and introduced by the end of October this year after all 20 of the Partido Popular's objections against each of the 20 articles in the white paper were yesterday rejected in the Balearic parliament. The move now paves the way for its approval by parliament and subsequent introduction, although it could end up in the High Court with the tax's numerous opponents claiming it is unconstitutional, illegal and discriminatory. The Balearic government said yesterday that the introduction of the tax, which the PP claims will also damage the region's tourist industry, is the government's “most significant project.”
