José Félix Tezanos will continue to the front of the Center of Investigaciones Sociológicas (CIS), according to advance the Chain to BE and has confirmed The Country with sources of the Executive. The decision is taken, but does not require, nor even a publication in the official gazette. You simply will not be discharged and will continue in his position.
Tezanos has been one of the senior most controversial of the socialist Government, and the CIS has been put in question by all the opposition and United we Can, now a member of the Government. Pablo Iglesias already stated clearly in an interview on Antena 3 that your training will assume all of the collegiate decisions of the Government, and therefore this also. The past month of October, We and the United Left came to call for his dismissal for having asked for the vote for bipartisanship in an article published in the Journal Topics, which he himself directs.
The CIS is a public institution, not to the heritage of the party that governs. Tezanos, as president, can not defend openly the old two-party system and calling for the vote. Should I resign or be terminated ipso factohttps://t.co/fTLrI1Ryom— Paul Churches ???? (@PabloIglesias) October 7, 2019
Tezanos is a person of absolute confidence of Sanchez. He was a member of the Executive of the socialist party even after being appointed director of the CIS, although he ended up leaving that body for the controversy that was created. The changes of methodology of the electoral surveys by the CIS that drove Tezanos were heavily criticized not only among politicians, but also among some sociologists and experts. However, Tezanos has defended vehemently its decisions and its management, and Sanchez has confirmed to the trust.Updated Date: 15 January 2020, 18:00
