The current numbers of unemployment and economic efforts of José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero and Mariano Rajoy have caused this Thursday the first crossings of reproaches between the candidates of the PP and the PSOE, Ana Pastor and María Jesús Montero, in the debate of La Sexta.
There have been two areas that have also aroused accusations and criticisms of the other protagonists of the debate: Irene Montero, of United We Can; Inés Arrimadas, of Cs; and Rocío Monasterio, from Vox.
In fact, another of the most prominent rifirrafes has taken place between Montero and Arrimadas as a result of the socialist candidate saying, in response to that of Cs: "Sometimes you say that you have lived in Andalusia, sometimes in Catalonia: according to what you want move you have lived in all parts of the world. "
The number two of Cs in Madrid has rejected these words by stating that with them Montero has tried to "ridicule her."
One day after the 10N election campaign ends, the five contestants have exchanged criticism and attacks in the economy block, the first of which makes up that debate.
Who has initiated the hostilities has been Pastor in valuing the "known history" of the PP in job creation, unlike the one practiced by the PSOE: "A socialist arrives and generates unemployment; a PP government arrives and solves and creates employment ".
The former Minister of Development recalled that when Rajoy won the elections in December 2011 and became president of the Government, the country was in "ruin."
As of 2014, in his words, the then PP Executive led to the creation of jobs and was able to lower taxes.
Now, with Pedro Sánchez in La Moncloa, the same thing can happen. "Luckily he has only been in the Government for 16 months; what would happen if we Spaniards gave them eight years like Zapatero," he added.
To these statements has responded the acting Minister of Finance and candidate of the PSOE, María Jesús Montero, for whom "the highest rate" of unemployment in democracy occurred in the time of Rajoy.
In addition, according to Montero's statements, the then PP government raised "60 times taxes" and brought the country to inequality, unlike what the Sánchez administration is doing now.
The PSOE candidate has continued with criticism of the labor reform because she "reduced the dismissal" and did not respect the negotiation with the unions; Rajoy's management was also characterized by "a precarious labor market." Since Sanchez rules, there are 500,000 more employed.
Montero, in addition, has indicated that the economic model advocated by Arrimadas does not exist because it is "an extension of the model that defends the PP", and as evidence has cited the departure of the party of economic leaders of the formation such as Toni Roldán or Francisco de la Tower.
"We have Luis Garicano, who is the best," Arrimadas said.
Subsequently, the PP candidate for Madrid has recovered the debate on the economic efforts of Zapatero and Rajoy to ensure that if there is "an example of management" is that of the Popular Party, so she has asked the Minister of Finance not give them policy lessons about economics.
Montero has mentioned the highway rescue and the state of the pension piggy bank to replicate the previous comment.
To this, Pastor has responded with an allusion to the stage of the socialist candidate as Andalusian Minister of Finance: "The data you have on the Board is to shame anyone."
