it is Not easy that a bad outcome has a good ending, but Pablo Iglesias (age 41, Madrid, spain) has managed to monetize the worst result of his party in the elections with his greatest political achievement. The leader of United we Can will be the next vice president, and Social Rights Agenda 2030, a charge that comes from the hand of Pedro Sánchez against all odds.

Churches was the unlikely winner of the repeat election. After the 28-A, the leader of the socialist party vetoed his presence in a coalition Government with United we Can on the grounds of lack of confidence. Churches took a step back, but the agreement was also not possible. The negotiations made little progress and the relationship between the two leaders was strained almost to the insult. The endowment failed of July showed publicly the contempt mutual.
that's why no one expected the embrace with which Sanchez and Churches, sealed the arrangement of Government just two days after the 10-N, when both of us had harvested a few worse results than seven months before. But the math of the electoral prevailed and the socialist leader saw no alternative to the coalition to retain the presidency. The leader of United We had already warned that it would not accept a new veto.
Churches, they founded we Can in 2014 to the heat of the 15-M, had lived in the last year its most difficult stage at the front of the party. The crisis that broke in two we Can, with the output of Íñigo Errejón, and the voices calling for a change of leadership is now distant with the entry into the Government. A master stroke by the that no one, except himself, would have bet. Churches, noted for his ability as a speaker comes to the vice presidency with a tone much more moderate than that of its beginnings, but willing to take advantage of his role as co-star. His relationship with Sánchez depends in large part upon the success of the Executive.Updated Date: 10 January 2020, 19:00
