Madrid, September 23 (EFE).- The second vice president of the government, Yolanda Díaz, presented this Friday the group of 35 people from her Suma political platform, who will be in charge of guiding the collective reflection to design a new project. The country, under a long-term horizon and progressive, green and pro-European parameters.
During Sumer’s debut, Díaz highlighted that so far four countries have projects, of former presidents Suarez, Gonzalez, Aznar and Zapatero. He wants to lead “a progressive, green and European citizen movement” in the “next decade”.
He then explained to reporters the absence of Rajoy and Sánchez, assuring them that, in his opinion, they could not undertake the country’s long-term projects due to the socio-economic crisis they had to deal with.
Díaz took to the floor in front of a hundred guests and journalists at Espacio Larra, a quiet space with barely any furniture in central Madrid. Behind him, a wall is barely decorated with a few red, pink and white posters that read a single printed and repeated subtitled slogan: “For a new country.”
Suma’s team will continue the process of listening to the community
Among the 35 outstanding professionals in their fields who will manage the subject-wise categories, Diaz was accompanied by Suma’s management team in the presentation. These departments will continue the process of listening to society that he started a few months ago with the aim of uniting the Left ahead of the next general election.
“Imagination cannot be limited to the size of the ballot box”, he underlined to highlight that the 35 professionals who will lead the Sumer area do not have to be on the future electoral rolls. Their job will be to coordinate their respective groups (between 15 and 35 people each) to prepare diagnoses and recommendations.
February, approximately, the final date for this process, as they indicated from the political project. Diaz, however, did not set a deadline in his speech. He emphasized that he wanted it to be “a long, deep look,” taking “a step back to review our history” to better envision the future.
Yolanda Díaz wants to “reinvent the welfare state”.
Díaz says ten years are needed to face big unresolved transformations like energy or digital, while “the short term has caused great unhappiness in Spanish society.”
“We have to reinvent the welfare state”, Sumer pointed out to the leader. This, according to him, goes through “another big pending task, tax reform” to end the “very big financial injustice” that “many of the super-rich don’t contribute to the coffers”. above”.
He added, to the effect, that “that’s the point of Summer, here’s one tax now and tomorrow there can’t be another”, to say that he wanted a platform and a design for thinking for a decade.
“A new social contract that is green, feminist, intergenerational and pacifist”, Diaz claims before defining her project as “a progressive, green and European civil movement”.
