The former advisor of former minister José Luis Ábalos, Koldo García, has assured that the PSOE has been "cruel" towards his former boss in the Ministry of Transport and who is now a deputy of the Mixed Group, stressing that asking him to resign from his duties in Congress "has been a mistake" because "it does not deserve it."

In his opinion, Ábalos is a person who "has given everything, not for himself, but for Spain", and who has been "a faithful public servant" and "one of the best politicians" the country has. Likewise, he has highlighted the former minister's "his willingness to solve problems, to help people", while he has maintained that questioning "his beliefs and his ideologies" seems to him "not cruel, but rather the following" .
