Podemos is committed to opening its own channel of dialogue with the PSOE to “negotiate” the investiture of Pedro Sánchez apart from the one Sumar has underway. The purple party ignores the channel established by Yolanda Díaz and this Tuesday sent the socialists a document with measures that it considers necessary to be in the government program of the legislature. In addition to those announced on Saturday by Ione Belarra, such as Irene Montero repeating as Minister of Equality, the text throws up other new proposals.
