He says that the insults to Vinicius occurred "in Valencia and with Madrid", so "there would be few people from the PNV"
BILBAO, 25 May. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The president of the PNV, Andoni Ortuzar, has considered "unworthy" that the president of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, accused the PNV of racism, of which he has claimed his "proven track record as an open party", and has regretted that "sneaking" this issue in the "crosses all boundaries" campaign. Likewise, he recalled that the insults to Vinicius occurred "in Valencia and with Madrid", so "there would be few people from the PNV".
At a breakfast at the New Economy Forum in Bilbao with the PNV candidates for general deputies of the three Basque territories, Ortuzar spoke in this way after the president of the Community of Madrid and leader of the popular Madrid people, Isabel Díaz Ayuso , will accuse the PNV of racism.
The jeltzale leader has specified that racism "has not crept in" into the electoral campaign, but rather "it has crept in by a lady who apparently needs to warm up the atmosphere."
Ortuzar pointed out that "all this started with racism in football", in relation to the insults received by the Real Madrid player Vinicius, and recalled that the case of Iñaki Williams has also been experienced in the Basque Country and "we all take as insults" against the Athletic footballer.
"But from there to making the leap with triple corkscrew and without a net to racism in politics and putting a party in seems ignoble, unworthy, to cross all limits," he said.
In any case, he recalled that "this Vinicius thing happened in Valencia and with Madrid" and, therefore, he believes that "there would be few people there from the PNV".
Likewise, he has defended that the PNV has "a proven record of being an open party", in the same way that the Basque Country is "an open society". As he explained, he grew up in an area where his family's nickname was "the Basques" because they were "surrounded by people who had come from other places" and who are "his friends", and, furthermore, "out of pure selfishness "people need to come to Euskadi regardless of their skin colour, their religious beliefs".
Ortuzar has once again regretted that debates have been raised that "are unfair" and has also criticized the Andalusian president, José Manuel Moreno Bonilla, who, "as in the PP it is still not clear who is going to command", has not dared to "make amends for Ayuso" and talk about "the ethnic superiority of I don't know who."
"Each one has to be very proud of what they are, but be willing to share it with others," said the president of the PNV, who warned that "mixing churras with merinos is not good, especially in the campaign." "And, furthermore, we are latxa sheep", he concluded.
