The president of Vox, Santiago Abascal, said this Sunday in Barcelona that his party is waiting for his former candidate in Andalusia and export spokesperson in Congress, Macarena Olona, to decide whether to maintain his decision to leave politics or resume this activity and join the training again.
Olona announced on July 29, 2022 her withdrawal from politics and public life "for medical reasons" and reappeared in August as a pilgrim on the Camino de Santiago.
On Friday, after a university event in Granada, he announced on social networks that he will request a meeting with the leader of Vox, Santiago Abascal, to ask him if they "walk together" in defense of a "better future" for Andalusia and the rest of Spain .
Abascal, to questions from journalists before participating in a demonstration in favor of the use of Castilian as a vehicular language in Catalan schools, congratulated himself on "the rapid recovery" of Olona.
"A little over a month and a half ago -Abacal recalled- Macarena Olona informed us that she could not fulfill her commitments to the Andalusians for health reasons, and that she had decided to leave politics and go to the State Bar".
After "celebrating" the improvement in his health, Abascal has indicated that "he will tell us if he has made the decision to leave politics and return to the State Bar or if, on the contrary, he has decided to return to politics and join the new to Vox".
"I have never left Vox for a basic reason: my heart goes out to each of the Vox voters who love Spain and are proud of its flag. With all its richness and diversity. And I will defend it if necessary by walking it in its entirety. With the example of his courage", Olona said on Friday on his Twitter account, in which he announced that next Friday he would give a new conference in Murcia -after the boycott he suffered at the University of Granada last Thursday-, after who would call Abascal to request a meeting "for one reason only: to ask him if we walk together for a better future for Andalusia and the rest of Spain. For our country and the Spaniards. They have no time to lose. At whose side I am and I want be."
Last Thursday, Abascal was already visibly uncomfortable when talking about Olona in an interview on EsRadio. "I am not capable of explaining many things, Federico," Abascal replied after an ostentatious silence to a question from Federico Jiménez Losantos about the exporter, who appeared on social networks with Mario Conde last Monday. "Yesterday I saw a photo that was with Mario Conde, a state attorney with a bank robber, our Macarena! What's going on?" Losantos asked.
Then the president of Vox avoided polemics and stressed that Olona no longer belongs to the party and therefore "she is free to make her life and defend what she wants." "She is a person who has left Vox and I cannot judge what she does," he pointed out.
