Sumar has avoided assuming as his own the requirements that Podemos raised last Saturday for the investiture of Pedro Sánchez, among which he cited as “essential” that Irene Montero continue as head of the Ministry of Equality. “We take note,” he says.

Asked about these demands at a press conference, Sumar’s spokesperson, Ernest Urtasun, has shown “full respect” to what any of the components of this space may propose within the framework of the negotiations with the PSOE, which Sumar is leading. “We work and listen,” he said, “everyone has the right to give their opinions.”

Ione Belarra announced five “proposals” on Saturday, which she avoided calling conditions. One, that Irene Montero and her team repeat as head of the Ministry of Equality, which she elevated to the category of “essential.” Others, freezing rents throughout the legislature, raising the minimum wage to 1,500 euros, making life cheaper (consolidating public transport discounts and limiting business margins in the shopping basket) and the repeal of the gag law.

At Sumar, Urtasun pointed out, they are “fully respectful and we take note of the work we have to do.”

On the specific issue of Montero, Urtasun has also thrown some light on the future of the still Minister of Equality. She has assured that in the dialogue with the PSOE they are not yet talking about the organizational chart, “not even about portfolios.” “When it is spoken we will have the debate and we will address the issue,” she indicated.
