Pedro Snchez tries to save Ciudadanos after his operation against the PP failed
The call for elections in the Community of Madrid has hit the Government of Spain squarely with the decision of Vice President Pablo Iglesias to leave the Executive to be a candidate. But it also takes the PSOE with the changed foot, without an alternative candidate to Angel Gabilondo, who will be the one to repeat as an electoral poster. But the discomfort generated by these elections has been evident in the criticisms that from Moncloa are pouring out against Isabel Daz Ayuso.

All political leaders and formations are already immersed in the electoral key. Even the Government, which on this occasion had no qualms about censuring Daz Ayuso’s decision and separating these elections from those of the Basque Country, Galicia or Catalonia, the other elections held during the pandemic.
“Mrs. Daz Ayuso had transmitted her confidence in her government, in the pact with Citizens. What happened to call elections? It occurs to me to say that it is an electoralist calculation, that she has taken advantage of the situation in Murcia to do something that she was thinking about doing. time: be reinforced with an electoral call “, Montero has reflected from Moncloa, in the press conference after the Council of Ministers.
The Government refuses to compare the Madrid elections with the others held in a pandemic because it argues that in Galicia and the Basque Country it was time for them to be held, while in Catalonia the disqualification of Quim Torra and the fact that the Parliament did not reach an agreement to form a new Government. they precipitated the election clock.
