Isabel Díaz Ayuso, the president of the Community of Madrid, has closed ranks with the head of her party, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, after the first failed investiture vote yesterday in Congress. In an interview on Telecinco, the leader of the Madrid PP explained why her speech always goes against the central government. "My speech is always national because Madrid cannot be understood without Spain."
In this sense, he has made it clear that "the PP will be on the streets if the amnesty law is agreed." For Ayuso, the current Junts has nothing to do with the one from years ago and has emphasized that this Catalan party only sends messages "against Madrid." On the contrary, he has hinted that in the future the PP and the PNV could come to understand each other, since the Basques "live in a very traditional way, they are very familiar... and we can come to understand each other to a large extent."
In his opinion, if Madrid and Catalonia went hand in hand, Spain would do better and more things could be done outside our borders, since both regions "represent 20% of Spain's GDP."
Returning to politics, Ayuso has criticized the amnesty and has emphasized "why we have to pay the independence movement if for years it has lived off the rest of Spain." In this direction, he has put on the table that there are autonomous communities, such as Extremadura, that lack railway infrastructure compared to other autonomous communities, which have them much more developed.
The Madrid president recalled that she will go to Barcelona to demonstrate against those who do not agree with the pact between the Catalan parties and the PSOE "because Barcelona is also my home." However, she has put on the table that when she visits some towns in Catalonia "they harass you, they insult you... especially those who put up the estelada..."
Finally, he has defended that it is not about wanting to divide Spain into two sides, but about "being in favor of the laws of this great country."
