“In vox the concept of family has been broken”. The former deputy Macarena Olona has raised the tone against the leadership of the party led by Santiago abascal, which he already openly accuses of being behind “some leaks in the media.” “I absolutely identified them as internal leaks that caused me a lot of pain,” he said, without giving any names. The tension between Olona and Vox, a formation until now hermetic in relation to organic issues, increases as the days go by and a schism in the party is already hinted at.
Those “leaks” that he denounces Macarena Olona they took place after the Andalusian elections in June, which he has defined as a “failure of expectations”. The 19-J the party went out -at least- to vice-chair the Board and ended up attending its first prick electoral, which precipitated Olona’s departure from the forefront of politics. The Andalusian exporter has said that she tried to “give the best” of herself and that the campaign was full of mistakes “that do not have to be repeated”.
In that search for culprits for the brake of Vox on 19-J, which only won two more seats in the Andalusian chamber, Olona has admitted that there was a break in his formation. “What I experienced after the Andalusians I had never experienced in my party”, he has admitted in an interview in Cope.

“There had always been great cohesion and a large part of the success of Vox is that many Spaniards did not see it just as a party but as a family. For the first time after the Andalusian elections I saw a breaking off in that concept”, he acknowledged.
Although the ex-deputy’s darts are directed against the leadership of the party, Olona wanted to save Santiago abascal of those attacks. “Anything Santiago says about me will be full of affection,” Olona said when asked about the words that Abascal spoke this Sunday with a certain irony about her and her illness, where the leader of Vox “celebrated his fast Recovery“.
“I understand that he is happy like any person who loves me. I am glad that Santi is happy that my family and I are well,” Olona said to emphasize that the internal fight is not against the president of the party, whom “admire” and who is “deeply grateful”.
Return to politics?
On a possible return to politics institutional -because Olona has never left politics- the Andalusian spokeswoman has indicated that “she cannot confirm” if she will return, because she must first meet with Abascal and check if both “they walk together”.
If you return, would you stay in Andalusia, would you return to Congress? Olona has emphasized that he would start where he stopped his activity, that is, at Andalusia. But immediately afterwards he pointed out that it is “unfeasible” to return to the Andalusian Parliament after having submitted his resignation. In any case, the former leader of Vox has emphasized that if she “returned to politics she would have to go through Andalusia in some way to be consistent” with what she thinks and with her word.
For the time being, his career path will be focused on State Attorneyalthough he has confirmed that he has requested a leave of absence until December to “walk and listen”, after the recent health problems he has endured.

On the other hand, Olona has assured that being a lawyer for the State is not incompatible with being a member of the party because, among other things, “affiliation is something private” and that is what he has transferred to the party, as he has said.
In this regard, he has expressed that perhaps Abascal “did not receive the complete information” by saying that he cannot combine his position in the Legal Profession with militancy. Thus, she has insisted that active politics is not at any time incompatible with his profession.
