The second vice president of the Government and leader of Sumar, Yolanda Díaz, has regretted that the Popular Party is going to position itself in abstention in the motion of censure against Pedro Sánchez that Vox will present this Monday in the Congress of Deputies, assuring that with this position , the leader of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, “declines to exercise opposition” to the Executive.
Feijóo joins Vox’s attacks on the trans law and obviates the norm that he approved in Galicia
During a public event organized by Sumar in the city of Albacete, Yolanda Díaz took the opportunity to expressly ask Núñez Feijóo if Vox leaders such as Santiago Abascal or Javier Ortega Smith are “good people”.
“Are they good people who harass women with fetal heartbeat in Castilla y León, being from the extreme right and threatening women when we want to terminate the pregnancy? Let’s pray to the churches!” Díaz affirmed, adding that abortion is a right that, in her case, women are going to “exercise with dignity.”
Díaz has elaborated on his theory that with his abstention, Núñez Feijóo “has renounced being the opposition of this country”, since “he is kidnapped” by the extreme right.
The “good people”
Last Tuesday, in the control session in the Senate, Alberto Núñez Feijóo used the expression to express his opposition to the trans law: “It is a mistake worse than the yes is yes. It affects women, adolescents and minors. Stop bothering good people, getting into the lives of others.”
Sources from the PP leadership later narrowed down what Feijóo was referring to. First, they clarified that he points to “moderate Spain that is not represented in the current PSOE.” Then, to the “professors, doctors and lawyers” who oppose the norm.
This last sentence gave Sánchez the chance to overcome the control session. “I never imagined that recognizing the rights of minorities, in this case the trans collective, would be bothering good people,” replied the president, who brandished the PP’s historic criticism of the equality laws approved in Spain and that, years later, they have had to assume that they have social support.
Díaz, about when she will be Sumar’s candidate
The Minister of Labor and Social Economy and leader of the Sumar platform, Yolanda Díaz, has ironized about the possibility of running as a candidate for the next general elections this year, assuring that she will have to have an “intimate conversation” with her daughter Carmela to decide .
“I will have to have an intimate conversation, not with my Secretary of State but with a creature, which is Carmela, my daughter, with whom I will send to tell me what I have to do with my life”, he explained.
The leader of Sumar has confessed to feeling “a little harassed” with this issue, since what she is most excited about, she has said, is “what is being done in the country project” that the platform is designing, and whose route is designed for the next decade.
“There are almost no political proposals in Spain, little is said, there is a lot of shouting and many insults, a lot of grotesque and shame in Congress and the Senate, but few proposals for the Spain of the 21st century,” he considered.
For this reason, she has assured that she is “involved” with Sumar’s work teams, who are working “generously” and waiting for them to present their country project to decide whether or not to be a candidate.
A basic basket in supermarkets
Díaz also indicated during the event that the five large food distribution companies in Spain “concentrate more than 50% of the market”, something that is “oligopoly, here and in China”, while asking to “act” from the Government and say to those companies, “who say crying that their margins are not so great, that they have to make available to the citizens a healthy shopping basket for the families of this country”. “And we also tell them that it is at their expense. This is what democracy is about ”, he affirmed.
At this point, it has advanced that this is its intention from the Government, and although it has admitted that it is “slow”, it has recalled that it is Galician and that it has “patience”, alluding to the 9 months it has taken to get the rise in the Interprofessional Minimum Wage.
