The Madrid president, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, has proposed this Sunday to the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, to transfer to the Senate the work they are doing in the videoconferences of regional presidents to address the evolution of COVID-19 and has called for a "clear" strategy of confinement to know what to expect "week by week".
Díaz Ayuso has raised this request in the seventh videoconference held by the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, with the regional leaders in the context of the coronavirus crisis.
The Madrid president has advocated continuing with the content of these meetings in the General Commission of Autonomous Communities in the Upper House, the "appropriate body" for these actions when talking about "dialogue and pacts".
"It is in the Senate where, before the citizens, before the media and among ourselves, we can speak in the same way as in videoconferences, but in the corresponding body," said the president.
From his point of view, these meetings with regional presidents will not make sense "if, afterwards, when it has to be done before the citizens, we do not dialogue in the same way."
Díaz Ayuso has considered that the meetings between Pedro Sánchez and the regional leaders are "fundamental" because, from his point of view, they help to work on "a project for the country."
