Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said on Monday he will present a motion to reform the constitution to strip politicians of judicial privileges.

A level of parliamentary special protection has helped shield Spanish lawmakers from corruption charges, a deepening concern amongst Spaniards and the basis of a no-confidence vote which toppled the previous government from power.

Sanchez also said he plans to present the 2019 budget proposal before parliament between November and December.
