“We have all the willingness in the world to reach agreements with Vox, to be president and for our government to give answers to what the citizens have asked us at the polls, but for that we have to roll up our sleeves now, we have to get to work now and lWhat we can’t do is wait for the bosses of some (alluding to Pelayo) to make decisions in our land in Madrid”, has manifested. “My bosses have already told me what they had to tell me and we know it very well, because our bosses are from Extremadura,” she highlighted.
