A campaign start that has been marked by the debate on livestock models and its impact on emptied Spain, after the controversy that arose from some statements by the head of Consumption, Alberto Garzon.

After the open struggle between PSOE and United We Can within the Government, the purple ones will take their chest out of the open debate in the face of the elections, in a rally to be held in Valladolid and will be the first act of the new coalition in the region, formed by Podemos, IU and Green Alliance ahead of the February 13 elections called by the regional president Alfonso Fernández Mañueco.

One of the The main doubts will be the role played by the next space candidate, Vice President Yolanda Díaz, in this territory. “We are going to invite Yolanda Díaz and hopefully she can be present at some campaign event or rally,” the purple candidate for the elections, Pablo Fernández, slipped at a press conference this Monday.

The controversy was initially unleashed by some leaders of the PP, who accused Garzón of discrediting Spanish livestock abroad. This offensive was joined by prominent leaders of the PSOE, such as the regional presidents Javier Lambán or Emiliano Garcia Page, who asked the IU leader for rectification or termination.

However, this Monday the tensions increased after the statements of the Prime Minister himself, Pedro Sanchez, that this Monday he said “Regret very much” the statements of Garzón for not corresponding with the line of work of the Executive. A position that has generated an intense cross of reproaches between socialists and purples.

In the last they have hardened attacks by United we can, that due to the lack of support received, the PSOE and the Prime Minister affected the lack of “loyalty” and highlighted the “worrying” that socialists “defend the lie”, assuming the thesis and the “hoaxes” of the right.

The spokesperson for United We Can in Congress, Pablo Echenique, took the opportunity to bring up some of the thorniest controversies of several of the PSOE ministers, such as the Delcy case of the former Minister of Transport Jose Luis Ábalos or the dismissal of Pérez de los Cobos by the head of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska.

A position in line with that expressed hours before by the former vice president of the Government, Pablo Iglesias, that in his speech as a talkative in RAC1 to criticize the “extremely serious” of the Prime Minister’s profile and where he took the opportunity to recall the controversy of plagiarism in Sánchez’s thesis, ensuring that, Unlike the socialists, the purple ones have closed ranks around this type of information.

Explode controversy

Fernández made the flag of “our extreme defense of sustainable livestock.” In this sense, he announced that “we will have significant support” for “supporting family livestock, which is what sets the population and creates employment.”
