BASQUE premier Inigo Urkullu has called for a legal consultation on the region’s future in Spain.
The PNV leader addressed a rally of supporters as Catalan independence parties secured an overall majority in Sunday’s regional election.
Spanish prime minister Mariano Rajoy has refused to allow Catalans an independence referendum claiming it would be unconstitutional.
Urkullu said: “We need a new political statute for Euskadi [the Basque Country].
“We are a nation, we are the Basque people, we are European citizens, with freedoms and historical rights, we have a language, a culture.”
ETA’s campaign of violence for full Basque independence from Spain cost over 800 lives.
