Sumar keeps receiving more support in Spain


Sumar keeps receiving more support in Spain

Madrid, Apr 1 (Prensa Latina) The new Spanish political platform called Sumar received today more support from several political forces, which seem to consolidate the project that will be presented on Sunday.

Thus, Spain’s second vice president and Minister of Labor, Yolanda Díaz, will have Izquierda Unida (IU), Más País, the Commons, Compromís, the Chunta aragonesista, Batzarre, Drago, Greens Equo, Movement for Dignity and Citizenship of Ceuta and the European Green Party closing ranks in the front row of her supporters.

It is still not clear what position Podemos will finally take, whose general secretary, Ione Belarra, again insisted to Díaz in agreeing on ‘open primaries’ to achieve the confluence in Sumar of her party.

However, support for Sumar is growing prior to this Sunday’s event and two ministers of the current government offered their opinions in favor of the new political project.

The Minister of the Presidency, Relations with the Courts and Democratic Memory, Félix Bolaños, said that both Sumar and Podemos ‘have to look after the Spaniards’ adding that both parties ought to ‘put aside’ their differences.

For his part, the Minister of Consumption and federal coordinator of IU, Alberto Garzón, affirmed that ‘Sumar is the best instrument to reunite all the left-wing forces’.

From this Sunday, Spain will have a new political alliance, Sumar, which will be led by Yolanda Diaz, a politician of Galician origin, with the expectation of becoming presidential candidate and running for the Palace of the Moncloa in the polls next November.

A 51 year old lawyer, member of the Communist Party, she has a high level of popularity due to the success of her negotiations with the trade unions and the employers, as well as a certain moderation in her statements related to the positions of the majority of the socialist force in the Spanish Government.
