Date: June 19, 2024 Time: 00:49:16

After the kick-off of the electoral campaign last Friday, the second vice president and candidate of Sumar for the general elections, Yolanda Díaz, has defended that Sumar is the only force that would promote a reform of regional financing, since the PP and the PSOE “have a centralist soul” and “a drive” that leads them to decide everything “in Madrid”. In an act in Valencia, Díaz has affirmed that the Valencian Community is the “worst financed autonomy in the Spanish State”, and she has promised to guarantee it “adequate” financing from 2024.

“You are underfinanced. I am only going to give you one piece of information today: you receive, per inhabitant, 178 euros less than the average for the country as a whole,” Díaz told the thousand people who attended his central campaign event, held at the Olympia Theater in Valencia where he has shared the stage with the leader of Más País, Íñigo Errejón, the heads of the list for Valencia Àgueda Micó (Compromís) and for Alicante, Txema Guijarro (Sumar), in addition to number 3 for Valencia Nahuel González (IU) .

Joan Baldoví, who has received expressions of recognition from Díaz, the speakers and the audience, who have chanted his name as well as El de Oltra.

The Vice President of the Government has insisted that “the financing system has expired 14 years ago”, in addition, she has indicated that this issue “is key to people’s lives” and its reform would translate, in the Valencian Community, into schools “without barracks” or in a health “with dignity”. And she has reiterated: “We promise that, in the year 2024, we will get the papers (to) fix once and for all the regional financing for Valencia.”

In addition, Díaz has appealed to the undecided on the left to support Sumar instead of the PSOE, since they are a guarantee to revalidate a coalition government and to comply with the limitation of the rental price, an increase in the minimum wage and not extending age jubilation in the country.

In this sense, and for the second day of the campaign, the leader of Sumar has highlighted the differences with the PSOE in terms of housing and it has affected them that they are in favor of opening the door to the debate on whether to extend retirement to 70 years. And he has also appealed to the feminist vote after criticizing that the leader of Vox, Santiago Abascal, attacked him saying that she is a dangerous woman. “Everyone says that I am dangerous, what happens is that there are gentlemen in this country who are afraid of free women”, he has settled.

A public energy company

In addition, it has reaffirmed its commitment to deploy a public energy company to intervene in this market and put an end to the “oligopoly” of four or five multinationals that monopolize the sector, with its plan to break up companies and separate the distribution activity from generation . “This enormous succulent business in which it produces is also the one that sells the energy,” he has delved.

In search of the comeback

In his speech, Díaz has once again demanded a policy that does not fall into “fights between politicians or “noise”, but “calm”, “serene” that Sumar embodies that with dialogue, but also with firmness in the proposals he wants to reissue the progressive coalition as of 23J, for which his candidacy must “continue to grow” to complete the “comeback” against the PP and Vox bloc.

But just as Errejón has previously lectured, the candidate for the Presidency of the Government has pointed out the “differences” with the PSOE in crucial elements. And addressing people who “have doubts and certain fears”, she has remarked that “what she says she complies with”, such as criticizing her serious mistake of not extending the automatic extension of rental contracts in the anti-crisis decree to continue limiting prices.

Also, as he did yesterday in Zaragoza, he added that there are businessmen who want to extend the retirement age to 70 years and that his partner, in reference to the PSOE, is willing to open the door and discuss extending it. “Sumar is not going to allow a cleaner or a dresser, a construction person, to work for more than 65 years,” he promised before the audience to emphasize that, in this field and in others, they will continue to win rights and improve the pensions.

Would the PSOE have raised only the SMI to 47%?

On the other hand, he has reiterated that the Housing Law arrived “late and is insufficient”, so one of his immediate goals is to reform it to shield price control throughout the country, along with his commitment to reach a a public housing park for rent with 2 million flats.

Moreover, he has questioned that without his presence in the Government the PSOE would have raised the minimum wage by 47%, deployed the ERTE mechanism during the pandemic or the current labor reform, and then defended that the vote for Sumar “is worth double” because, in addition to guaranteeing a progressive government, it is a guarantee of compliance with the program.

Díaz has also stressed that he wants “democracy in the economy”, to reduce the working day without reducing wages and a tax reform to “end tax privileges”. “We want those who are making obscene profits to contribute to our country and defray the costs of the welfare state,” he said.

As is customary in her actions, the second vice president has stated that the story that the right wing is going to win on 23J is false, given that the victory will be for the progressive bloc and they are going to continue defending the rights of LGTBI people and deploy a “99% feminism” that widens freedom.
