The president of Cs says he wants' concrete measures such as a bonus for parents who distribute equal paternity leave 'or' a check for conciliation with a 30% relief
"Equality is not just a banner, they are policies and solutions." This was stated by the president of Citizens (Cs), Albert Rivera, during his speech at the meeting ‘Citizens in progress’ that was held in the Harley Space of Madrid. "I want to be the president of all Spaniards and all family models," said the leader of the orange formation, who also said he cannot understand "that there are parties that tell the Spaniards how to be a family."
Rivera has participated in this meeting with the vice mayor of the City of Madrid, Begoña Villacís; the Minister of Culture and Tourism of the Community of Madrid, Marta Rivera; the Minister of Equality, Social Policies and Conciliation of the Junta de Andalucía, Rocío Ruiz; and the candidate of Cs to Congress for Guadalajara, M.ª Ángeles Rosado. The leader of Cs has opted to grant paternity leave of 16 equal weeks for each. And if the two take all their weeks of permission, proposes “a 4-week bonus”, so each one at the end would have 18 weeks, 9 months between the two. In addition, he has proposed “a check for conciliation with a 30% deduction” and “free, universal and child education”.
"Studying, having a decent job, starting a family and having a pension in good condition," said the leader of the liberal formation as a summary of what it is to do politics. "There could be no freedom but we defend it with equality," he added.
