Pablo Iglesias says goodbye with a video on Twitter and not from Moncloa: “We have shown that we are not bought”
Enrique Santiago, leader of the PCE, to be the new Secretary of State for the 2030 Agenda
The departure of Pablo Iglesias from the Government to be the candidate of Podemos in the elections of the Community of Madrid forces Pedro Sánchez to carry out a new Government crisis, just a few weeks after the one carried out by the departure of Salvador Illa, then Minister of Health. , to be a candidate for the PSC in Catalonia. The Prime Minister will appear on Tuesday afternoon at 5.30 pm.
Sanchez make an institutional statement from The Moncloa in which “in principle”, according to the sources consulted, account for some surgical changes in which the gaps left by the departure of Iglesias are replaced. Thus, Yolanda Daz, Minister of Labor, will become third vice president, since Nadia Calvio, who until now held that vice presidency, rises one ladder to be second vice president.
Although the second vice-presidency in the government pact signed between PSOE and Unidas Podemos corresponds to Unidas Podemos, Snchez has changed the order so that Calvio continues to be the highest economic head of the Executive, continue to preside Economic Delegate Commission, and not have Daz above her. An alteration of the ladder that the socialist wing of the Executive demanded and to which Daz gave the go-ahead from the first moment.
Another of the appointments will be that of Ione Belarra as Minister of Social Rights, the department that Iglesias had associated with in his vice-presidency. Belarra, who until now was Secretary of State for the 2030 Agenda, is one of the most prominent leaders of United We Can, trusted by Iglesias, and who has piloted some of the most important negotiations with the PSOE, such as the configuration itself. of the coalition or, at the moment, the Housing Law, where the positions between the partners are still far apart in terms of rent regulation.
As a previous step to the appointments that Pedro Sánchez communicates to the King in the next few hours and then makes public, the Council of Ministers has already approved the appointment of Enrique Santiago, actual lder del PCE and a person very close to Iglesias, as the new Secretary of State for the 2030 Agenda.
