The Minister of Labor, Yolanda Díaz, who will be the next Third Vice President, has recognized that He was stunned by the offer of Pablo Iglesias to take over in front of United We Can and has ensured that Nobody will “never” find her “arguing for positions”.

In statements to journalists before appearing in the Labor Commission of the Congress of Deputies, Yolanda Díaz has said that she continues to be “completely committed” to her tasks in the Government and that is “quite concerned” about “serious problems” in the labor market from the country. And with that argument, she has avoided answering whether she will accept being the next candidate for the Presidency of the Government of the United We Can coalition.

Asked about how was the discussion within the Government to change the Second Vice Presidency held by Pablo Iglesias for the third, which will fall on her, Yolanda Díaz has answered that, “with all the honor” that is to be vice president of your country, the most important thing is to carry out the task in the Ministry of Labor. “They will never find me, and I think my story supports me, arguing for positions. Never,” Diaz has defended, who assures that her profession – as a labor lawyer – is “what she likes most in life” and that her task is “the Ministry of Labor and Social Economy”. “I am focused on it,” he added.

Trust an agreement for the regulation of rents

In addition, Díaz has been convinced that there will be agreement in the regulation of rents and in the Housing Law. “It is not a question of yielding, there will be a sure agreement,” said Díaz before appearing in the Labor Commission of Congress to explain the evolution of the Temporary Employment Regulation Files (ERTE) and account for the negotiation of the labor reform with social agents.

Díaz, who has avoided entering the electoral pre-campaign for the next presidency of the Community of Madrid to which the second vice president, Pablo Iglesias, is presented as a candidate, has influenced that housing is a “fundamental” right that contemplates the constitutional text and international norms. “I am sure that there will be an agreement … the Government of Spain wants to address one of the main problems of the country, which is housing, I am sure that there is,” he pointed out.

The Minister of Labor has spoken a day after Iglesias reminded the PSOE again of the coalition government agreement in which it is expressly requested to regulate housing to avoid speculation. The leader of Podemos opened his pre-campaign on Sunday with the act ‘Housing: right or market good?’ in which he attacked the policies of the Madrid president Isabel Díaz Ayuso for “give away housing to vulture funds” or “collect abusive rents”.
