The mayor of Villar de Cañas (Cuenca), José María Saiz, has been suspended from militancy by the Popular Party after his macho words against the Minister of Equality, Irene Montero.
This has been made known by the Popular Party on the morning of this Tuesday, after the Committee of Rights and Guarantees of the formation made this decision.
They explain in a press release that, following the deadlines indicated by procedures of this type and in response to the allegations presented by him in the file, it is agreed to initiate disciplinary proceedings against Saiz "for the facts related to the statements about a government minister from Spain".
Saiz assured last February that the Minister for Equality, Irene Montero, "has a mouth full of sores from sucking the 'pigtails'", in the context of an interview with the journalist Javier Negre, which was echoed in his Twitter account the former secretary general of Podemos Pablo Iglesias.
The leader of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, rejected the words of José María Saiz, also pointing out on his Twitter account that "There are hundreds of reasons to censor Irene Montero's career as a minister, but not everything goes in politics. I will not accept any attack on the dignity of a woman under the acronym of the PP. We will act immediately". Words shared by the president of the regional PP, Paco Núñez, who said he did not share "neither the words, nor the terms, nor the attitude" of the mayor.
Subsequently, the mayor apologized to the people who might have felt offended and, especially, to Minister Irene Montero, for the words he uttered. "I should have criticized her, in my opinion, disastrous political management of her, without undermining her personal dignity," said the mayor in a statement posted on the City Council's Facebook account.
The Popular Party then confirmed the opening of an information file "immediately" and the Guarantees Committee of the PP began work on the file opened to the mayor of Villar de Cañas in order to prepare the file and summon the interested party for the interrogation phase. .
José María Saiz has also been, from the beginning, the visible face of the regional PP in defense of the Centralized Temporary Storage of nuclear waste (ATC) in his town.
