It is not the first time that the celebration of Dos de Mayo, the festival of the Community of Madrid, coincides with the electoral campaign, but this year it will take place two days before citizens go to the polls. This has led the PSOE to demand that the Electoral Board act preventively to guarantee "neutrality" in this event. After the electoral referee has opened two files against Isabel Díaz Ayuso For propaganda in institutional events, the PSOE asks the Electoral Board to warn Puerta del Sol that it has to take extreme precautions in the festivities of Dos de Mayo and, specifically, to prevent the speech of the Madrid president.
The Community of Madrid will reward children for their example in the pandemic
"We consider it urgent and peremptory that, from this Provincial Electoral Board, the Government of the Community of Madrid be urged to act with the utmost neutrality in the institutional acts of celebration of May 2," says the PSOE in the text sent to the electoral referee to which elDiario.es has had access, in which it says that "it corresponds to ensure that these events, which are organized and financed directly and exclusively by the Community of Madrid, do not become content and electoral showcase events of a alone of the concurrent formations ".
The Socialists recall that for the first time the Puerta del Sol has left Telemadrid out of the production and realization of the institutional signal to broadcast the Dos de Mayo events, which have been outsourced so that the regional government has full control of the dissemination of the act. That is why the Socialists demand that the Electoral Board urge "the president of the Community of Madrid and the Government of the Community of Madrid and, especially, its General Directorate of Media, that in the institutional acts of May 2, In its dissemination, in its institutional informative coverage, through press releases, institutional signal and media to the press in accordance with Agreement 293/1232, the Central Electoral Board refrain from broadcasting messages of electoral content, for infringing these the duty of objectivity that public powers must safeguard at all times ".
The PSOE also wants the body in charge of ensuring the smooth running of the electoral processes to order "the Government of the Community of Madrid and, specifically, the president of the Community and candidate of a political formation that act with the utmost neutrality and do not use the institutional acts of May 2, the last day of the electoral campaign, to violate the principle of neutrality of the public powers and equality of arms between candidates, providing by that Electoral Board that the PP candidate and President of the Community of Madrid did not deliver any speech at these events. "
"In the events of May 2, the winners are for all the people of Madrid, the recognition of these belongs to everyone, especially this year, in which our children are recognized for their integrity and example during the pandemic that we are experiencing and, The recognition of professionals and bodies of the Public Administration that have carried out important tasks in these difficult times. This recognition must be left out of the electoral process. There can be no confusion between the institutional and the political. all Madrilenians as a Madrilenian society. Fundamental is that the confusion between the institutional and the partisan remains clear and transparent in this process, and even more so when it affects our minors and their families in this complicated year ", says the text of the PSOE, which remember that 650,000 families have received emails with a diploma for children for the reception of the Grand Cross of the Order of the Second of May signed by Ayuso. "The signature of the president was not necessary in the middle of the electoral process, after a minimum reflection on the neutrality of the public powers," say the Socialists.
