SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, July 20 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The candidate of the Canary Coalition to the Congress of Deputies for the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Cristina Valido, has affirmed that voting for the Canary Coalition on July 23 “is voting for the future of the Canary Islands”.
The CC candidate made it clear that we must realize that “there are reasons to decide on July 23 that the best option for the Canary Islands is the Canary Islands Coalition.”
“Voting for Sánchez and Feijóo is voting against the Canary Islands,” highlighted Valido, who recalled that the Canary Islands will not vote next Sunday for any of the candidates for the presidency of the Government; “We voted for the men and women who will defend the rights of the Islands in Madrid, and only the nationalists of the Canarian Coalition will do that,” he remarked.
“Whether one or the other wins, under a government of the PP or the PSOE, their Canarian deputies and senators will always continue to act following the guidelines of their bosses in Madrid. They have voted in favor of the Canary Islands when they have needed our votes and they have voted against whenever the interest of other territories to favor other territories when there were other interests,” he explained.
For this reason, he insisted that on July 23 “the best news that the news can give is that after the recount of the votes, the tenant of La Moncloa has to negotiate with the Canary Islands Coalition, they have to take the Canary Islands into account.”
According to Valido, both for Sánchez and Feijóo “The Canary Islands do not exist, but in the Canary Islands we have an alternative: the people who walk the streets of our neighborhoods and our towns on our eight islands. Those people are the women and men of Coalición Canaria. For us, unlike Sánchez and Feijóo, the priority is and will always be the Canary Islands”.
“The Canaries and the Canaries are going to have three options in the elections on July 23. Faced with two candidates obsessed with La Moncloa who do not know the islands, the Canaries are going to have a ballot or a box in which they are going to have the option of voting for the men and women that the Canaries will always defend,” Valido reiterated.
“Next July 23, we risk being treated as Basques and Catalans or as second-class citizens,” he said.
