The PSOE has opened a disciplinary file against Joaqun Leguina for having criticized Pedro Snchez during the electoral campaign in the Community of Madrid and publicly supporting the PP candidate, Isabel Daz Ayuso.

According to the resolution of the Federal Executive, to which EL MUNDO has had access, the former president of Madrid would have “incidentally” incurred several offenses for, among other arguments, “undermine prestige and public image of the collegiate organs of the party and its members “.

Leguina now faces sanctions ranging from suspension of membership for more than two months to the definitive expulsion. During an interview with this newspaper last week I already announced that he would prosecute the case if Ferraz stripped him of his militancy.

In the disciplinary file prepared by the PSOE, quotation marks of the former socialist leader are included in various appearances and public statements during the electoral campaign. Specifically, on the ballot that he would choose on May 4, he noted: “I’m thinking about it, but I’m not going to vote for Sanchez. ” He also assured that the Prime Minister “is destroying” the party.

Regarding the socialist candidate who was actually standing in the elections, Ángel Gabilondo, he pointed out that he felt “respect for him”, but that “as a representative of the party sanchista, the truth is, you don’t want to vote for him. “In an interview in La Razn went so far as to affirm that Ayuso was “the least bad option”, although after the elections he assured EL MUNDO that he had not supported the PP candidate at the polls because he is a “social democrat.”

The statutes of the PSOE establish that any militant may be sanctioned if he breaches the Code of Ethics, engages in “civic or ethical misconduct” or “publicly expresses his opinions in irresponsible terms or with disloyalty to the party or its affiliates”: The Federal Executive Leguina’s statements during the campaign are “at least incidentally” constituting “behaviors classified as serious and very serious offenses” by articles 8, 88 and 89 of the aforementioned statutes.

In addition to committing a “serious personal offense” by “undermining the prestige and public image” of Sanchez, the Federal Executive considers that the former president of Madrid has made public comments “opposed to the party’s political line.” Likewise, it points out that it has failed to comply with the prohibition of “requesting a public vote for other political formations” in elections in which a socialist candidacy concurs.
