The Minister of Universities, Joan Subirats, considers the protests and escraches that the president of the Community received on Tuesday, Isabel Diaz Ayusoduring the act of ratifying her appointment as an “illustrious student” of the Faculty of Information Sciences of the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM).
In statements to the media before entering the chamber of the Congress of Deputies, the head of Universities has stated that it seems “bad” that a public university has recognized with this honor to a person who is “degrading” Madrid universities with his politics.
The Community of Madrid, Subirats has argued, “is the autonomous community with the lowest level of public university funding.”

The Minister of Universities also has accused Ayuso of encouraging the creation of private universitiessomething that, in his opinion, is contradictory, since the president of the Community of Madrid has been trained in a public institution.
Regarding the protests that have been generated by the recognition of Ayuso, Subirats has defended that universities are spaces where debate can be held, which is why those that have taken place in the act of the Faculty of Sciences of the Information, where Ayuso graduated in Journalism in 2002.
Was the University Chancellor, Joaquin Goyache, who proposed recognizing Díaz Ayuso with this distinction. The decision immediately fractured part of the academic community of the Complutense. Since the announcement, a hundred teachers and researchers they have opposed the appointment and there have been the resignations of two vice rectors. All this against the backdrop of the upcoming elections for rector, which will be held this year.
