Madrid had everything ready to celebrate its big party with the Puerta del Sol decked out in scaffolding and Isabel Diaz Ayuso with impulse of the act of Sunday in Majadahonda where he presented his “desire” to preside over the Popular Party of Madrid.
However, the news overshadowed the act. From Moncloa, an urgent press conference by the Minister of the Presidency, Félix Bolaños, announced the judicialization of the alleged espionage of Pedro Sánchez and Margarita Robles and left in the background what was going to be the act of the day: the first May 2 without restrictions and with certain differences with respect to the previous celebration.
1. No Married, but with Feijóo
It was one of the images of the day, the endorsement of Feijóo to the Madrid president on the first day of the community without Pablo Casado at the helm.
And so it has done, it has even defended that the objective of the Madrid president is “to open a new stage of illusion and equality to lower the tension and tension in Spanish politics”.
However, Ayuso has taken yet another attitude towards tension with a large number of references to Spain leaving veiled criticism of Sánchez.
2. Full capacity
The patio of the Royal Post Office was more crowded than in previous years, limited capacity due to the restrictions of the pandemic.
On this occasion, the invitation had been delivered to 700 people, a long way from the 80 in 2021, and that multiplied with the curious waiting outside the building.
But that was not the only difference. With the lifting of the obligation of indoor masks, all attendees have been able to see each other’s faces.
3. The thing is about elections
Now much calmer but also from the fore. A year ago, Ayuso played the Community of Madrid after breaking his coalition with Ciudadanos. Two days later, on 4-M the president would obtain a better result than in the previous call.
This year, the president is also immersed in a process. At stake, the presidency of the PP in Madrid, although she has no emotion after being the only candidate.
And he has not missed the opportunity to take advantage of and repeat his motto “you win” on several occasions. “Madrid is the Spain that wants to be more and better”, she said to open her speech.
4. Review the troops
After the awarding of the medals, Ayuso has placed the laurel wreath on the main façade with a new member compared to the previous year. On this occasion, the Minister of the Presidency, Félix Bolaños, accompanied Ayuso and the mayor of the capital.
However, this year the president has not been able to carry out the traditional military act in front of the main façade due to the works that are being carried out in the square.
The traditional military parade that was a key act before the pandemic has not been held either.
5. Missing Nacho Cano
Gone is the message of thanks from the artist Nacho Cano to the Madrid president after receiving the medal and which became a rally for Ayuso.
This year, the philosopher Fernando Savater, one of the honorees, has been in charge of publicly highlighting the figure of Ayuso. “A prize for a certain rebellion of work, effort, continuity and that to a large extent the president herself represents the rebellion”, he has expressed.
Savater has argued that this is so because of the “large number of opponents” that Ayuso has before receiving the praise.
