The second vice president and leader of Sumar, Yolanda Díaz, leaders of the left-wing bloc Unidas Podemos, and some figures from the Spanish progressive wing regretted Milei’s victory.
“Democracy is at stake (…) it is a sad day for the democratic bloc around the world (…) to win we must offer better answers to the discomfort on which the negationists feed. Let’s take care of the Yes majority in our country,” Yolanda Diaz wrote in her social networks.
The leader of the ultra-right-wing Vox party, Santiago Abascal, exultantly congratulated Milei, to whom he had previously offered his support, as did the former head of Government and Popular Party (PP) figure, Mariano Rajoy.
From the Sumar group, Canary Island’s Lawmaker Noemí Santana said that Milei’s victory is ‘terrible news’ and called for resistance.
We must not lose heart, even in the hardest times, a criterion that is similar to that of the Secretary General of Podemos and former Minister of Social Rights, Ione Belarra.
