The Socialist Group will request the disapproval of the Vice President of the Board, Juan García-Gallardo, by the plenary session of the Cortes de Castilla y León, scheduled for next week, for "his humiliating treatment" and "lack of respect" with which he addressed the attorney Noelia Frutos.
This is reflected in the resolution proposal that will be debated and voted on in the next plenary session of the Chamber, advanced this Thursday after the meeting of the Board of Spokespersons of the Cortes by the socialist deputy spokesperson, Patricia Gómez, who has branded "disrespectful words" the way García-Gallardo responded to Noelia Frutos.
The question from Noelia Frutos, who uses a wheelchair due to a disability, had its origin in an intervention by García-Gallardo in a forum in Madrid in relation to the fact that women do not need quotas or be treated as if they were disabled. “How should women with disabilities be treated?” asked the socialist.
«This disrespectful comment, by the representative of a democratic government towards a woman, towards a parliamentarian, is completely inadmissible in any forum and in any area, but even more so if it occurs in the home of all Castilian and Leonese and of all Castilians and Leonese, and for whom, let us not forget, represents the Government of Castile and León”, argues the Socialist Group in its resolution proposal collected by Ical.
The Chairman of the Board, Alfonso Fernández Mañueco, and the Executive's spokesman, Carlos Fernández Carriedo, apologized and apologized if any person or group felt "annoyed" or "offended" by the words of García-Gallardo, who, For his part, he reaffirmed himself in his demonstrations and assured that there was nothing to "apologize" for.
