There, the leader of Sumar has attacked some rights that she considers have already “failed”, one day before the PP’s political event to protest against a future amnesty law.

The leader of Sumar has defended that her political space “makes sense only for a country that does not make cuts”, a warning about the position of his party in the debate about the elimination of aid raised by the war conflict in Eastern Europe. “We believe that there are measures that do not work well, for example, the 15% tax credit for those people who decide to purchase a home,” said the second vice president, who stressed that this measure only “abounds in the policies of “housing speculation.” “Benefiting public transportation is very effective,” she countered.

The “most social” legislature

They do it this week because they know that Feijóo’s project and [Santiago] Abascal has failed before he began,” Díaz stressed just three days before the popular candidate’s investiture debate is held. The vice president has also spoken about this moment. “It has become clear that he is wasting our time, committing constitutional fraud with article 99 [de la Carta Magna]. He said that he wanted to talk to all the political parties, with the regional presidents, and he himself got into their trap. […]. “He lies to himself,” he said.

In full negotiations with Junts to be able to assemble a majority that allows the reissue of the progressive coalition between PSOE and Sumar and with the PP act against the amnesty scheduled this Sunday, the vice president has also criticized that the right only mobilizes “against rights , with no.” “They want to continue living from the political conflict, from the territorial confrontation, because they think that this ensures they can govern,” Díaz warned.
