Sánchez avoids clarifying whether Ribera will be a candidate on 9J but places her at the level of Calviño and Borrell, with European positions

MADRID, 18 Abr. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has avoided confirming whether the third vice president and minister for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, Teresa Ribera, will head the PSOE list for the European elections on June 9 but has praised her and placed her at the level by Nadia Calviño and Josep Borrell, both with European positions.

Thus, he indicated that Borrell, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign and Security Policy; Calviño, who is president of the European Investment Bank (EIB), and Ribera are accredited and respected people at the European and international level.

The third vice president also highlighted the role she has played regarding "climate policies", which is one of the main challenges facing humanity, as she stated, in the reform of the electricity market or in the 'Iberian solution' to lower the price of gas in Spain and Portugal.

Along the same lines, he stressed that Spain is located in an extraordinary position, "like we have not been in for many years", thanks to these positions, and in particular to the "female leadership" of Calviño and Ribera. "And I think that must also be recognized," she remarked.

In any case, Sánchez says that with these words he is not trying to "make his third vice president's homeland" nor point out her strengths "if she is the candidate" but rather he is limiting himself to describing a reality that in his opinion is shared by society. and for the people who have worked with it "at a multilateral and European level."

This same Friday, Ribera avoided explicitly ruling himself out as the head of the European list and limited himself to asking that the process be respected, given that this week the deadline for the local party groups to transfer their candidates to make up the list ends. And then "we'll see," as he indicated.

"I believe that now it is time to scrupulously respect the proposals that are sent to us in accordance with the statutes of the party to which I belong from the groups and we will see," he said.
