The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, continues with his string of electoral announcements and this Monday he pointed out that the Council of Ministers will approve tomorrow, Tuesday, in the second round, the Parity Law between men and women to take it to Parliament and process its approval before the end of the legislature. A rule that, he added, will also affect bodies of the Judiciary such as the Constitutional Court and the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ), among other bodies.
The also leader of the PSOE has made this announcement at an electoral rally in Santander, in which he has been accompanied by the socialist candidate for the Presidency of Cantabria, Pablo Zuloaga, and the head of the list for the Santander Mayor’s Office, Daniel Fernández. “Voting for the PSOE is voting for a feminist”, Sánchez maintained before a packed Festival Palace, in which he has defended the policies of a parity government and is committed to gender equality.
However, he has regretted that this does not happen in other environments and has recorded that the Vice President and Minister of Economy, Nadia Calviño, has refused to be photographed on occasion when “everyone was other men.” For this reason, he has defended that “much” remains to be done in the field of equal representation in private circles, and has stressed that the quotas “favor meritocracy” of women who have not had the opportunity to “break the glass ceiling “.
As data, he pointed out that in Europe ten years ago the percentage of women on the boards of directors of large companies was 13% and now, in countries that incorporate quotas such as Spain it is 35% and in those that do not they did in 16 percent. “Parity with political power, parity in economic power, parity in the Government of Spain, parity in the governments of large companies; parity by law”, Sánchez summarized, who pointed out that “some” will find it “excessive “, but for the socialists this “is justice” and redounds to the “benefit of society”
