Yolanda Díaz has raised her tone this Sunday from the central campaign event in the Villaverde district in Madrid where she has harshly charged against the PP candidate, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, for his personal relations with the drug trafficker Marcial Dorado. “Explain to us her relationship with Marcial Dorado when all of Spain knew who Marcial Dorado was, explain to us his relationship with drug trafficking,” Sumar’s candidate launched. Díaz has in turn called for the mobilization of the left and has asked for the vote of the undecided for Sumar because “they are trying to establish that they are going to win the elections”, but, he has defended, “he will only win if we believe that they are going to win” . To do this, the Vice President and Minister of Labor has asked for the vote of women for the next 23J and for the left to vote “positively”.

Díaz has also charged Feijóo for not wanting to attend the four-person debate next Wednesday organized by RTVE, whom he has accused of “being afraid” of debating with her. For Díaz, Feijóo is part of the PP of “corruption and bonuses” and that his presence in that debate should serve to clarify, as the president of the Senate has demanded, if he has a “bonus”, a salary, he said , which must be “blushing”, which is why he has not yet wanted to make it public.
At that point, Yolanda Díaz also recalled Feijóo’s “intimate friendship” with Marcial Dorado while, for a decade, she said, thousands of young people died from drugs. “Explain to us what you were doing with Marcial Dorado when all of Spain knew who Marcial Dorado was; explain to us your relations with drug trafficking”, he insisted. It is the first time in the campaign that the PP leader has been reminded of his relations with the drug trafficker with whom in the past some photographs were revealed in which both vacationed on a boat owned by Dorado.
Díaz has also insisted that if Feijóo reaches Moncloa, the PP will reinstall the “austerity” model that translates into cuts in pensions, health and public education. At that point, the Sumar candidate has puffed up the government’s economic management during the mandate marked by the COVID-19 crisis.
The vice president and candidate of Sumar has assured during her central campaign event in the Villaverde district of Madrid that the Government has “come out and defended a management of the crisis that had never been carried out in a democracy.” “Do you think that if we were not in the Government they would do it like this? Do you think that if we were not in the Government we would raise the minimum wage by 47%? Do you remember what they told me?” Díaz stated.
Sumar’s candidate for the 23J elections has also puffed up her tenure as Employment Minister with policies marked by the rise in the minimum wage and the labor reform. “They told me that I was going to destroy jobs, that Spain was going to kill me. Friends, thanks to your tenacity we not only saved Spain, it is that today, the Spain that the PP dreamed of, with 20 million employed, we have surpassed it with almost 21 million employed, it is that we govern better, and we have to continue governing to improve people’s lives,” said Díaz.
Yolanda Díaz has been in Madrid in the central act of the campaign accompanied by the leader of Más Madrid, Mónica García, the candidates of the same formation, Iñigo Errejón and Tesh Sidi, the state co-spokeswoman for Podemos and number eight of Sumar for Madrid, Isa saw; the number two Agustín Santos and the candidate for IU, Montse García.

The leader of Más Madrid, Mónica García, has defended during her speech that “it is time for women’s history” and has advocated that those who want to return us to the past go into the closet “and close the door”. For his part, Errejón has defended voting for Sumar and Yolanda Díaz on July 23 is worth “double” and is “decisive”, because it is the only force that snatches seats from Vox and “adds” them to the progressive bloc.
The leader of Podemos and candidate for Sumar el 23J Isa Serra has asked for the vote for Díaz because, she has defended, it is the only guarantee that great transformations will be promoted, since Madrid can change the history of the far-right pacts and of bipartisanship. Serra has warned of the pacts of the right with the deniers of gender violence, which threaten the rights already conquered, the diversity and the pluriconality of the country.
For her part, Sumar’s candidate and IU leader Montse García highlighted during her speech that Sumar has put aside “sectarianism” and “internal rivalries” on the left, given that among the different progressive forces there are no adversaries, since these are the ones who “perpetuate injustice and exclusion”. In this sense, she has appealed to continue building broad alliances within the left and has highlighted the long history that the IU has in this matter.
