The second vice president of the Government and leader of Sumar, Yolanda Díaz, rules out that the citizen platform that she promotes is ready to compete in next year’s municipal elections given that her objective is “to define a country project for the next decade” and, only then, decide “if it becomes an electoral project or not”.
In an interview granted to Cadena Ser in Galicia, Yolanda Díaz has vindicated the work that is carried out within the platform, with 25 groups to address the different matters of relevance to the country. To do this, she will tour the different territories, including Galicia, adding individual contributions from those who so wish.
For this reason, within this process, it has appealed to Galicians so that “those who wish to be part of this collective construction” register and contribute their point of view.
Thus, Díaz estimates that between the end of the year and January 2023, ‘Sumar’ will be able to have “a great vision of the country we want for the next decade” and, only later, will it be “collectively decided whether it becomes an electoral project or not ”. “’Sumar’ is a citizen movement, it is not an electoral project”, he recalled.
In any case, and even if they opt for the electoral route, the second vice president rules out that they can stand for next year’s municipal and regional elections. “I think we are not here for the elections”, said Díaz, who has opted to first develop “a complete definition of the project”.
two different formations
Asked about the differences within the Government, Yolanda Díaz has said that she is not in favor of “noise” in politics, but has recalled that PSOE and Podemos are “two different political forces”.
“I think it is healthy for citizens to know the differences we have within the government, for example in fiscal matters, as in other matters with the PSOE. Now, discussing the proposals but without making noise”, he settled.
As for the CIS data, the second vice president has not entered into the assessment of the president of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, and wanted to highlight “a premise”: “that the forces of the right and extreme right do not add up” to govern, which implies that “the future lies in re-editing the progressive coalition” in Spain.
