Podemos defends that the new plugged in by Irene Montero for the Ministry of Equality are people “Of recognized prestige” despite being one of them convicted of attacking a policewoman, the former regional deputy Isa Serra, and two others accused of embezzlement and prevarication, the former councilors in Madrid Celia Mayer and Carlos Sánchez-Mato.
This has been stated by the spokesperson for the purple formation in the Madrid Assembly, Carolina alonso, who has defended that these incorporations will serve to “expand the rights of women”, ignoring that the court ruling that convicted Serra states that she not only attacked female police officers, but also spoke out against them macho insults like “son of a bitch,” “whore,” “bitch,” or “bad mother.”
Questioned precisely on this point by OKDIARIO, about how a person who has had these attitudes against women is going to contribute to expanding their rights, Alonso has decided to keep quiet for an answer and has limited himself to remembering that Podemos «does not share the condemns Isa Serra “because they consider it a” political “sentence and are going to appeal it in the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU).
Thus, for the spokesperson of Podemos, it is not Serra who “curtails the rights of women”, but who does it is the president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Diaz Ayuso, which, in his opinion, incurs in “abandonment of functions” with the rights of women.
“Ayuso does not comply with the rights of women, with respect to the voluntary interruption of pregnancy, nor does it comply with the fight against gender violence. Since Ayuso leaves functions, it is very good that the Ministry of Equality is committed to territorial profiles anchored in the municipalities to be able to carry out the tasks that Ayuso does not do through the City Councils, “he explained.
In another vein, Alonso has made reference to the PP Convention, which he has said resembles a “recognition wheel of the UDEF.” However, after this allusion to questions from this newspaper about what he thinks about Podemos having at least 15 convicted in its ranks, the spokesperson has chosen not to answer and, immediately afterwards, has left the press conference.
OKDIARIO counted at least 15 convicts in the purple formation last week, including Serra and the last to swell that list, Congressman Alberto Rodríguez, for kicking a policeman in 2014 in Tenerife. A crime of attack against an agent of the authority for which the Supreme Court has sentenced him to a penalty of 1 month and 15 days in prison, with the accessory of special disqualification for the right to passive suffrage during the time of the sentence.
Meanwhile, the Minister of Equality, Irene Montero, has defended the hiring of convicted and accused persons, of whom she has affirmed that they are “judicially persecuted.”
Podemita has affirmed that it will always be at the side “of those who defend democracy even if are persecuted in the media, politically or judicially ”, in reference to their new friends-signings, who will receive, counting on the new Secretary of State for Equality, Ángela Rodríguez, a total of 267,000 euros per year.
