Calviño denies "pressure" of the Ibex 35 so that Unidas Podemos can not enter the Government

The Minister of Economy and Enterprise, Nadia Calviño, has denied on Wednesday that there are pressures for United We Can not be part of the Government. "I am not aware of any kind of pressure in that sense," he assured in an interview with Cadena Ser. A day earlier, the general secretary of this training, Pablo Iglesias, claimed that the pressures of the Ibex 35 have hindered the agreement for a coalition government.

In addition, the minister has hinted at the possibility that the Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez, the postulate to be the next president of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to replace Christine Lagarde. Asked about this possibility, Calviño has remained silent for a few seconds before adding that "the conversation has not occurred in those terms." Earlier he had stated that "the president would support any minister who could hold such an important position."

In addition, Calviño has responded to the Andalusian councilor for Equality, who has asked the university for "scientific evidence" about the salary gap between men and women. "The evidence is impressive, more than 60% of the people who perceive the SMI are women," the minister has exemplified.

The head of Economy and Business has insisted that they do not intend to repeal the labor reform of the PP, and on the contrary has advocated to "focus on the future" and "modernize" collective bargaining with consensus of workers and employers.

In his opinion, the reduction of compensation for unfair dismissal from 45 to 33 days per year worked is not among the "main problems" of employment in Spain, whose focus has placed on temporary and partial employment. "The costs for dismissal in Spain are among the highest in Europe," he said.
