Aragonese regionalism must speed up and organise itself to achieve autonomy for Aragon, through need and through right, because of its personality. The Commonwealth of Aragon has to be like the great Council of the Kingdom ( the Aragon government in the Middle Ages), against a system of centralised Provincial Councils that limit themselves to obeying Madrid and spend their budget according to the Government’s directives, which transmits its adverse effects. Complete administration of the country is sought, overcoming the inexcusable links with the Government. One attempts to attend to the proper needs of Aragon, economic, public works, territorial organisation (the regions), that will overcome limited provincial municipalism, that will update and revitalise Aragonese regional rights, that will make Zaragoza its capital and maintain cordial but minimum relations with the Spanish government. It is in favour of friendly relations with other people, especially Cataluña and Levante, but without being anybody's colony or appendix. It restores Aragon’s proper personality and its wish to defend its interests against third parties.

It adds ten rules to the Aragonese Regionalist Action programme bringing together the aforementioned and other aspects such as the need to have their own Revenue department at every administrative level, a marked agrarian and industrial policy, the creation of an Aragonese Higher Education Centre and taking up government competencies.
