Toni Cantó signs as a far-right television presenter after leaving the Spanish Office

The project for which the former Ciudadanos leader Toni Cantó has left the Spanish Office is already known: he will be a presenter on 7NN, a far right chain. This Thursday afternoon, Cantó announced his end at the head of this institution created by the president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, to “soon start a new professional project”. According to has confirmed ElPlural.comthis new work goes through television, specifically on 7NN, a channel close to the ideology of Vox launched a year ago where Cantó will present a weekly program and maintain a regular collaboration.

Cantó has left the Spanish Office a year and two months after the president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, created this area expressly to place the politician after not being able to incorporate him into the electoral lists. Cantó's salary as area director has so far hovered around 75,000 euros gross per year. Despite the fact that the office aimed to promote Spanish in the world and thus attract tourism, Cantó lacked any training in this regard when he took office. The former public leader has been a television actor and for a few years he has been immersed in politics, militating in various political parties, including UPyD and Ciudadanos, of which he became a deputy in Congress.

He was coordinator of Ciudadanos in Valencia and in March 2021 he abandoned all his positions in the party to encourage what was his political group to "go with the PP to elections" in the elections of the Community of Madrid that same year. A month later, the Constitutional Court definitively expelled the Valencian from the PP lists for the elections of May 4, 2021 for not meeting the requirements demanded by law, since Cantó was not registered in the community. The electoral result gave Ayuso a large majority and, after repeating as head of the Presidency of the Community of Madrid, he approved a new structure, thus creating the area directorate of the Spanish Office.

Cantó arrived at this new address after only a year before defending as a deputy of the Valencian Community a regional administration with "less useless structures, fewer beach bars and plugged in and fewer politicians". “We are going to eliminate them and that money is going to go to health and education”said among other statements about the so-called "chiringuitos".
