The president of Cs answers questions about the economic and social consequences of COVID-19
The president of Ciudadanos (Cs), Inés Arrimadas, participated yesterday in the second virtual café with affiliates after the success of the first edition. More than 1,000 affiliates from all over Spain have met in the '60 minutes of Telematic Coffee with Inés Arrimadas' to ask live to the leader of the liberal party about the Government's management of the pandemic or aid to self-employed and SMEs before the economic and social consequences of Covid-19, among other issues.
In relation to the course of the phases, Arrimadas has lamented the lack of foresight and transparency of the Government in this regard since "people feel arbitrariness and a feeling of terrible helplessness." He has highlighted Madrid's proposal to pass the phase with the obligation of masks. "It is the smartest option to meet the challenge" of saving lives and jobs. The Cs leader has stressed the need to "reactivate the economy little by little but with guarantees, reinforcing the mandatory use of masks so that we can contain the spread of the virus."
Asked about maternity leave, the president of Ciudadanos has confirmed to members that it will take a few weeks. "What I would like is for the fact that women in positions of responsibility can take a few weeks without a power vacuum to be normalized" and while "nobody questions anything," Arrimadas said, assuring that it is not necessary to give up being mother or party president. "It is good for society not to have to choose" and "I hope to contribute this little grain of sand," he added.
