The congress met for the first time on 15 June 2011. It is the shortest meeting of the democratic General Junta as it ended after then President of Asturias, Francisco Álvarez-Cascos, called a snap election, being the first non-historic autonomous community (different from Andalusia, Catalonia, the Basque Country or Galicia) to do so.[1]
