In a statement sent to the media, the Coordination Council of the purple training in Cieza has shown its support for the work carried out by the negotiation team in Madrid, "which has tried at all times to defend the dignity of the almost four millions of voters of Podemos in a timeless negotiation, marked by mistrust and in a climate of unprecedented pressure on a true democracy. "
Therefore, in Podemos-Cieza they believe that it is important for people to know the truth about the negotiations, "because an attempt is made to build a story whose resemblance to reality is sometimes pure coincidence."
Thus, they explain from Podemos that after the April election result (3.7 million votes for Podemos and 7.4 million for the PSOE), "we offered Sánchez our full readiness to form a coalition government to try to make policies that would improve the life of the majority, proportional to what was voted, convinced that the ability to transform things from the Government is much greater than with the mere parliamentary presence or in the opposition. "
However, for three months, the PSOE flatly refused to assess this possibility and preferred to seek the support of Citizens or the PP, which also did not obtain;
and that, "although there was already a previous programmatic agreement from which to start, the budget agreement that could serve as a starting point facilitating the consensus of both forces."
Sánchez's immobility, "behaving as if he had obtained an absolute majority, led us to convene a consultation in which 138,000 people voted, and 70 percent of them did so in favor of a coalition government."
Many have been the resignations of UP throughout the process: "First, we agree not to occupy Ministries of State, but it was not enough; the next obstacle was a personal veto to our candidate, unprecedented in any democracy, and Pablo Iglesias resigned" .
After that, the PSOE appeared to assume the coalition, "but never showed real intentions to negotiate and began to behave, incomprehensibly, with hostility and lack of loyalty to its possible government partner."
As evidence of this manifest disloyalty, they point out from Podemos-Cieza "that a series of social ministries that had never been offered together were listed, with the clear objective of deceiving citizens and making them believe that UP had rejected a very special offer. generous, or the filtering of a manipulated discussion paper that made demands go through what was nothing more than an initial proposal. "
In spite of this, and of the animosity against UP in the parliamentary interventions of Sanchez and the spokesmen of the PSOE, "our formation always kept the hand extended, as our abstention in both sessions demonstrates".
The problem has never been the program, not even the number of ministries, "but the competencies, since we cannot accept portfolios without executive capacity, or positions without real power that do not serve to change things, to defend the interests of the people worker".
And, precisely for that reason, "we think that we are on time, and that we must continue to bet firmly on the formation of a government of progress for Spain, where a relevant presence of United We can guarantee a political and legislative program in favor of the popular classes Spanish. "
With this objective, "the Coordination Council of Podemos-Cieza wants to transfer its non-palliative support to the negotiating team, which we hope will continue to defend with honesty and dignity the hopes of social change of all the men and women we vote in April 2019 to UP ".
