Pablo Iglesias resigns from all his positions after the failure of the left in Madrid

Iglesias had left his post as second vice president of the Spanish Government, chaired by the socialist Pedro Sánchez, to run as a candidate for these elections.

“When one is not useful, one has to know how to withdraw,” said the leader of United Podemos after acknowledging that there has been a great mobilization on the right and that he has generated more rejection than momentum for the left and has become a “scapegoat.” and therefore it has failed.

In the regional elections this Tuesday, the conservative Popular Party doubled the results of the 2019 elections, when it won 30 seats and surpassed the sum of the three left-wing parties, which have 58 deputies: 24 of the Socialists (PSOE), 24 of Más Madrid and 10 of United We Can, in a highly polarized election between the bloc on the left and the one on the right.

More Madrid, led by Mónica García, and founded by Íñigo Errejón, a former partner of Iglesias, was the great winner of the Madrid left, placing itself above the PSOE as the second political force in the regional Parliament.

Iglesias, whose formation nevertheless achieved better support than in the 2019 elections with 7.2% of the votes and ten seats, congratulated Más Madrid for its “magnificent” result and announced that it is taking a step back to give space to new leaderships and faces that work in the renewal of their political project.
