Díaz demands that Sánchez urgently convene the coalition monitoring commission

Postponed since the beginning of the year due to the devilish Spanish electoral cycle, the second vice president of the Government and Minister of Labor and Social Economy, Yolanda Díaz, has asked the PSOE to convene "immediately" the coalition's monitoring commission to evaluate compliance with the objectives and coordinate the action of the two partners of the Executive who, from the beginning of the legislature, act more on their own than through a common front.

Díaz demands that Sánchez urgently convene the coalition monitoring commission

Postponed since the beginning of the year due to the devilish Spanish electoral cycle, the second vice president of the Government and Minister of Labor and Social Economy, Yolanda Díaz, has asked the PSOE to convene "immediately" the coalition's monitoring commission to evaluate compliance with the objectives and coordinate the action of the two partners of the Executive who, from the beginning of the legislature, act more on their own than through a common front.

Díaz has summoned the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, through an interview on RNE, in which he has criticized the delays that the socialists have been giving to the confederal group for a commission that should have been established in the first 30 days of Government , as stated in the coalition agreement.

Asked when she plans to convene the monitoring commission, Díaz has announced that she will do so “immediately.” In a “prudent, but now” way. Although she immediately ruled out discomfort as the feeling that Sumar had due to the delay.

At least not as large as the one that existed specifically during the last legislature between PSOE and Unidas Podemos, so that the monitoring commissions served more to stop the crises due to the labor reform or the one known as the sexual freedom law that confronted socialists and purples.

What is most annoying in the space coordinated by Díaz is “the stand by” in which the PSOE has placed the legislature after giving up trying to carry out the General State Budgets (PGE) of 2024, which entails the decline of some measures promoted by Sumar as the increase in the spending ceiling, which was raised by 16,000 million euros to “improve” “inequality in Spain.”

“If we want to continue with the path that the President of the Government has said and have budgets for the year 2025, we have to negotiate in the summer,” indicated the head of Labor, referring to the need to “fill with content” Pedro's break. Sánchez with measures such as the extension of birth permits to 20 weeks, the reduction of working hours or the reindustrialization of Spain.

That is why Sumar will present just after the European elections on June 9 a battery of proposals for the 2025 accounts in order to make as much progress as possible in their preparation to approve them when the summer returns.

It is in this line of work that Sumar's latest proposals are limited to eliminate those known as golden life that guarantee a visa to foreigners who buy a home or the improvement of paternity leaves, among others.
