Once the town councils have been constituted, the electoral pre-campaign around 23-J is a starting signal for the candidates to lead from Moncloa to take positions. This Sunday, the leader of Sumar, Yolanda Díaz, has announced a proposal to create an emergency bonus for mortgaged families, given the increase in the fees they suffer, and has promised to reduce the working day through a law on the use of time.

He has also proclaimed that the issue in the 23J general elections is the improvement of the lives of citizens and “not the future of any politician”, alluding to the PSOE and PP candidates, Pedro Sánchez and Alberto Núñez Feijóo, respectively. “The question is about our lives and the answer is called Sumar, let’s go all out,” he recounted during an act in Madrid together with several Sumar candidates, such as the diplomat Agustín Santos, the economist Carlos Martín, the writer Violeta Serrano and the Labor inspector and former Director General of Labor Verónica Martínez.

“The best are with me (…) They have baggage and illusion,” he emphasized one day to register the electoral lists, where there will be a profound renovation with respect to the previous group of United We Can, a day after the purple formation assumed that the head of Equality, Irene Montero, will not be on the lists.


During his speech, very marked by economic proposals, Díaz once again reiterated his commitment to promote a tax reform to “reinvent the welfare state for the 21st century”, to force those who “slip” to contribute to his country tax time. In this sense, he has stated that in order to improve public services it is necessary to have a permanent tax on large fortunes, an IRPF with a clearly progressive character, reformulate the inheritance tax and launch an observatory on increases in business margins and link them to the revaluation of wages.

Then, he has stated that he does not share the “optimistic” vision of the macroeconomic data, which is going “well, but it is not enough” because many people continue to have a bad time. And at this point, he has revealed that four million people see how their variable-rate mortgage increases by about 300 euros a month due to the rise in interest rates, something difficult to assimilate when the average salary in Spain is 21,000 euros per year.

This rise in mortgages, he has emphasized, does not allow people to “live with dignity” and that this is not resolved by the use of an “ethical code”, in reference to the code of good practices deployed by Economy and which in theory should favor to a million people, but it has only had an impact on 10,000. For this reason, he has revealed that they are going to include an emergency bonus in their program to help families pay for this rise in mortgages.


During her speech, the vice president has also alluded to the constitution of the town halls yesterday and charged against the PP and Feijóo, whom she has accused of agreeing “without shame and without complexes” with those who “trampling on the rights of women and LGTBi people”, referring to Vox. He has also criticized the fact that the PP candidate’s plan is based on a generic tax cut, which is a “failed”, “unscientific”, “unreal” and, above all, “deeply hypocritical” recipe that “no longer fits in the country”.

And it is that he has recorded that during the stage of the popular ex-president Mariano Rajoy the “Fridays of Sorrows” were established, in references to the cuts applied by the PP at that stage, and up to 30 tax figures were raised, with a surely “segregating” component ” in the case of VAT that reached 21%. In turn, he has recriminated that this formation gives “fiscal gifts” to the most privileged, citing the Andalusian president, Juanma Moreno, in his speech.
