Esperanza Aguirre’s sister is left without a seat for the one who opted for Vox
The puncture that, among other constituencies, Vox has suffered in Madrid, has left Rocío Aguirre Gil de Biedman, sister of the former president of the Community of Madrid, Esperanza Aguirre, without a seat.
Rocío Gil was number 8 on the Santiago Abascal list, a position that the party believed they were going to achieve since in 2019 they drew 7 deputies and aspired to improve those results. But in the capital they have only reached 5 seats.
The bump has also left out veteran party deputies such as Juan Luis Steegmann, the doctor who dared to defend vaccines during the pandemic, being questioned by many of his colleagues. Steegman was number 6. Another victim has been Carla Toscano, the furious anti-feminist deputy for Vix, who was in position 7 and has not won a seat.
