Follow live the first debate for the elections to the Community of Madrid on May 4. The appointment in Telemadrid will be the only one in which all the headliners of the parties are. Therefore, it will be the only opportunity to confront programs and proposals in front of the citizens.
The PP candidate, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, faces the most difficult test of the campaign. Grown by the prognoses of the polls, the regional president takes her victory for granted except for a last-minute mistake. In the calendar on the left, the debate also appears as an appointed day, the “most important of the campaign” for some. United We Can, stuck in the polls as the sixth force, counts on Pablo Iglesias performing well in the format and they think that his participation can define the undecided vote. More Madrid is aware that it is “the only opportunity” to face Ayuso and his campaign team based on moderate expectations. For his part, the socialist candidate Ángel Gabilondo, despite his moderate profile, intends to confront the regional president. Although Pedro Sánchez believes that the fight between blocks will be tight, in the PSOE they admit that the data they handle are not good.
