The Minister for Equality, Irene Montero, has addressed this Wednesday some of the main current political issues in ‘La Hora de la 1’, after the recent approval of the ‘law of only yes is yes’ or the green light that it has received the rule that shields the right to abortion in public health, by the Council of Ministers.
Regarding the new abortion law, Montero has indicated that “the urgency is that there are many women in our country who cannot effectively access their right to voluntarily interrupt their pregnancy.”
He has also stressed his criticism of the delay of the General Council of the Judiciary in issuing its report on the abortion law: “The problem is that the CGPJ has failed to comply with the law and has not done its job.”
Criticism of the Popular Party
In statements to TVE, Montero has also referred to the opposition exercised by the Popular Party, and more specifically, to its leader, Alberto Núñez Feijóo. He has done so after defending the progressive nature of the coalition government: “We can never forget that this government is here to represent the general interest, to comply with the laws and to change everything that has to be changed.”
In this sense, Montero has defended the feminist and transformative policies that they are carrying out to guarantee rights, while at the same time demanding the trust of citizens “because they know that when the PSOE and United We Can govern, together we side with the people.” , we govern for the social majorities”.
“And when Mr. Feijóo governs, when the right governs, what they do is make tax amnesties and protect the privileges of a few”

Thus, the head of Equality has shown, in her opinion, the other side of the coin, what happens when the PP governs. “And when Mr. Feijóo governs, when the right governs, what they do is make tax amnesties and protect the privileges of a few while the social majority suffers,” he has sentenced.
