History:

The interprovincial Council of Asturias y León was created by Decree issued by the Presidency of the Council of Ministers on the 23rd December, 1936. A new institution was thereby established with the aim to replace the provincial Deputation in the regulation of provincial activities. On top of that, the decree laid down the dissolution of administrative commissions or provincial committees of the People’s Front, which had taken on the responsibility of regulating life in the provice ever since the putsch went awry. Section 11 of this Decree established the Council of Aragon and the interprovincial councils of Santander, Burgos and Palencia, and Asturias y León.

The interprovincial Council of Asturias y León was chaired by the Government Representative Belarmino Tomás Álvarez, who took on the responsibility of the department of War. The department of Finance, on the other hand, was chaired by the socialist Rafael Hernández Álvarez.

After the decline of Santander, the interprovincial Council was declared sovereign and gave rise to the Sovereign Council of Asturias y León on the 24th August, 1937.
