Yolanda Díaz, leader of Sumar, has been optimistic about the possibility of reaching an agreement with Junts to form the Congress Table in statements made less than 24 hours after the formation of the courts. Regarding the message in which Carles Puigdemont asked for “verifiable facts” today in exchange for his party’s votes, Díaz has affirmed that it is an attitude corresponding to the “logic of a negotiation” that is in its final moments.
Moments before the meeting of Sumar’s parliamentary group, the left-wing leader has defended before the media that maintaining “discretion” in negotiations between formations is the “best tool for things to go well.”
The current Minister of Labor and Second Vice President of the Government ensuring that both she herself and Jaume Asens, former deputy of En Comú Podem, are negotiating at the “highest level” with the Catalan separatist formation and the rest of the parties.
Díaz has also taken the opportunity to reiterate his request that congressmen be allowed to make their speeches in Parliament in any of the co-official languages of the State, a demand for a “plural and diverse” Spain that required a reform of the regulations of the chamber.
Praise to Armengol
On the other hand, he has extolled the profile of the former Balearic president and socialist deputy Francina Armengol to preside over the Congress, since her figure includes many characteristics of how politics should be in the 21st century.
In turn, Díaz has highlighted that the 23J elections showed that the citizens want a progressive coalition government, since they not only validated the social, ecological and feminist policies of the last legislature, but also that “Spain wants more, more social and labor rights “.
