The Popular Party has decided open a file with the aim of punishing Cayetana Álvarez de Toledo, former spokesman of the blue formation, for not having positioned herself in favor of the election of the candidates that her parliamentary group agreed with PSOE and United We Can to renew the Constitutional Court.
They consider that, with this, has moved away from party guidelines and they have communicated this decision to her by letter.
Álvarez de Toledo will now have ten days to present the allegations it deems pertinent. Once this period has passed, the person in charge of the investigation will decide if an economic sanction is imposed on the deputy or there is no fine, which would be between 500 and 700 euros. Madrid’s own politics, through its social networks, confirmed that will stand up to her own party.
This situation derives from the policy decision to vote blank in the election of the candidates agreed by the PP and the coalition government.
“One cannot demand that there be a depoliticization of the General Council of the Judiciary and then participate in a shameless, active and public politicization of the Constitutional Court,” she declared herself in an interview for The world.
In this way, the former spokesperson for the Popular Party justified distancing herself from the party’s guidelines and her refusal to support the entry of the candidates of her formation, including Enrique Arnaldo and Concepción Espejel, to the High Court.
Gamarra asks “coherence” to her predecessor
This Tuesday, at a press conference, this situation has once again become a hot topic. Asked about the fact that Álvarez de Toledo now does not support her but the past had no problem doing so with candidates also linked to the proposing parties, the current PP spokesperson, Cuca Gamarra, has stated that “who voted something in a certain way and under the same rules of the game that at present should have maintained the same position for consistency“.
On the other hand, Gamarra has not wanted to qualify the role of her predecessor in office within the Popular Party. “I have a maxim: out of respect for each and every one of the members of the group, I do not value the activity in any public way“, she assured, although pointing out that if he has to tell him something it will be”privately“.
