Isabel Díaz Ayuso was sworn in as president of the The Madrid community this Friday with the votes in favor of PP and Vox and against Más Madrid, PSOE and United We Can.
This way, Ayuso will reign alone for two years in this brief legislature which has just started, cut short by the electoral advance, with the sole external support of Vox, who did not lift any conditions in exchange for his support, and now without Citizens, who was his government partner during the previous legislature.
Ayuso has recovered Marta Rivera de la Cruz for his new government in the Community of Madrid, who in the Executive coalition with Cs was Minister of Culture and Tourism on behalf of the Orange formation and now, after withdrawing from the party, will add the Sports portfolio to these two competences.
In addition, Ayuso incorporates his new government, which reduce the board from 13 to 9, to the former government delegate in Madrid Design Dancausa as Minister of Family, Youth and Social Policy already Carlos Left as a local administration and digitization advisor.
Izquierdo was advisor for the environment and spatial planning during the government of Angel Garrido in the community of Madrid and previously advisor for social and family policies to the executive of Cristina Cifuentes and advisor for the town hall of Madrid.
For his part, Dancausa was, in addition to being a government delegate in Madrid, director of the Institute for Women, General Secretary of Social Affairs of the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs, President of the Madrid Assembly, first deputy mayor and, in the last legislature, deputy minister of housing and local government.
Izquierdo and Dancausa are the only two novelties of the new Ayuso government, who has just been invested president of the Community of Madrid with the votes in favor of PP and Vox.
One expected comeback is that of Rivera de la Cruz, who came into politics in the hands of Albert Rivera in 2015, when she was elected to Congress for Madrid, and was signed after the 2019 regional elections as Minister of Culture and Tourism in the PP and C coalition government in the Community of Madrid.
She was dismissed like the rest of the members of the Government of Cs after the electoral advance decreed by Ayuso, with whom he nevertheless continued to maintain good relations.
Ayuso’s other six advisers are those who were already part of the previous government on behalf of the PP, with the exception of María Eugenia Carballedo, who left the executive in which she was advisor to the presidency after being elected president. of the Madrid Assembly.
