The Citizens’ candidate for the Presidency of the Community of Madrid, Edmundo Bal, has shown this Saturday convinced that after the May 4 elections The coalition government between the PP and its party will be repeated, while he has denied the political “marriage” between the leader of the PSOE, Ángel Gabilondo, and that of United We Can, Pablo Iglesias.
Bal made this consideration in an electoral act held in the Plaza Dos de Mayo in Madrid, where he participated together with Begoña Villacís, deputy mayor of Madrid; Ignacio Aguado, former vice president of the Community of Madrid, and Inés Arrimadas, president of Ciudadanos.
The candidate of the orange formation indicated that “there is a beautiful love story in these elections between Mr. Gabilondo and Mr. Iglesias”, but assured that “there will be no marriage in 10 days, in 9 or in 50 days” . “Madrid, on May 4, 2021 will have the best possible government, which is the one it had with Nacho Aguado and now he’s going to have it with me, “he said.
Thus, Bal extended his hand to the regional president and PP candidate, Isabel Díaz Ayuso: “Isabel, let’s rule together, we’re going to get along. We are going to make the best government possible for all Madrilenians. “
Bal made several allusions to the failed debate this Friday on Cadena SER between the candidates of the main Madrid parties and commented: “Until yesterday morning I thought that Ciudadanos was the best possible for Madrid, but today I think that we are not only the best possible option is that we are the essential option to guarantee coexistence, tolerance and respect“.
On the other hand, Bal pronounced “loud and clear” that he condemns the bullets sent in an envelope and directed at Iglesias, the acts of violence against Vox in the streets, the ‘escrache’ to Villacís when she was pregnant and the violence of ETA. “I’m sick of the slogans, the slogans, the empty words, that she or he is freedom and democracy, let them handle those beautiful wordsThis is not the patrimony of any political force, it is the patrimony of all Spaniards and all Madrilenians, “he commented.
