The Balearic parliament in session on Tuesday. | Jaume Morey
The tourism of excesses decree was approved by the Balearic parliament on Tuesday. The government parties received the backing of three opposition parties - Ciudadanos (Cs), El Pi and the Partido Popular - albeit this was qualified support. The opposition argued that measures contemplated in the decree should form an item of legislation that would be subject to normal parliamentary procedures - proposed amendments, debate and so on. A decree law doesn't require these lengthy procedures, and an opposition motion for there to be a bill was voted down.
