  • Politics.Pedro Sánchez presses with decreeing the state of alarm in Madrid after the judicial setback

With the announcement by the central government of the convocation of an extraordinary Council of Ministers, Madrid's politics has boiled again in the middle of the night.

The president of the Community, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, has confirmed a conversation with the President of the Government Pedro Sánchez at 10:15 p.m. in which they have agreed to "speak tomorrow" to study "alternatives" and "agree on a solution that benefits citizens and give clarity "after the ruling of the TSJM that annuls the measures imposed by the Ministry of Health in the capital.

But before "first thing in the morning," according to the



there will be a meeting of the technical health services of the regional government to set the line to follow.

A line that the president seems to have clear.

"Our basic areas were working and could be the best," Ayuso said about the selective confinements by basic health areas that began in the region on September 21 and that, according to data from the Ministry of Health, have reduced the contagions, instead of the application of the state of alarm that the central government is considering.

A state of alarm that in Madrid they understand is one more sign that the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, "once again fails to speak hours after his appearance in Algeria."

This is what the mayor of the capital and national spokesman of the PP, José Luis Martínez-Almeida, pointed out this Thursday in an interview on Channel 24 hours, who has pointed out that it is "something that should no longer surprise the Spanish."

"Pedro Sánchez makes the same mistake that he has made in the last 10 days and that has plunged us Madrilenians into chaos and uncertainty," added the councilor who has asked to "seek a balance point" between freedom movement and the confinement of the capital.

"Right now there is no sanitary situation to apply a confinement in the city of Madrid," Almeida has remarked.

From Moncloa they affirm that in the conversation between the central government and the Community of Madrid, Sánchez has offered Ayuso three options: that the regional government as the competent authority issue an order under the Law of Special Measures in Public Health, which request the Executive to jointly apply the state of alarm or the direct application of that state of alarm from Moncloa.
