MADRID HAS NO PRESIDENT DAYS BEFORE ITS FEAST

Who was until now the president of the Community of Madrid, Cristina Cifuentes Cuencas, has resigned from the regional government for alleged irregularities in her master’s degree at the URJC and after spreading a video that is attributed to a supposed theft in a supermarket in 2011.

The resignation of the politician from PP takes place to a week of the celebration of the institutional acts of the Community of Madrid on May 2.

After more than thirty years in politics, Cristina Cifuentes has left office in the Madrid government denouncing a campaign against her because “zero tolerance for corruption has a price”.

“All my action, my life, have been called into question, and with a determined interest, not only to end the adversary but to destroy the person,” he complained.

Cristina Cifuentes has acknowledged she has “made mistakes” throughout her life – “of all kinds” but has said that this case “all the red lines have been crossed”.

Born in the capital of Spain on July 1, 1964, she has a degree in Law and belongs to the Body of Superior Technicians for the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM).

Militant PP, was elected for the first time deputy of the Assembly of Madrid in 1991 and after a broad and intense political career in 2012 became the sixth woman delegated by the Government in the capital and in 2015 as president of the Community of Madrid with the support of Citizens.

Cifuentes filed a complaint in February 2018 against the ex-Madrid-born Francisco Granados, after he told Judge García Castellón that Cifuentes knew there were a “box B” with which “reinforcement” expenses were paid for Esperanza Aguirre’s campaigns in 2007 and 2011

Days later, she was involved in a controversy over alleged irregularities in a master’s degree obtained at the Rey Juan Carlos University (URJC), with supposedly falsified qualifications, which she renounced on April 17.

A video of 2011 allegedly surprised with two unpaid cosmetic creams from a supermarket near the Madrid Assembly, when she was first vice president of the regional Parliament, has led her to announce her resignation, after a month of controversy over alleged irregularities in obtaining an educational degree from the Rey Juan Carlos University of Madrid.

“I took by mistake and involuntarily, without being aware of it, some products for the amount of 40 euros; they told me at the exit, I paid them at the time and the matter was not major, “he explained.

“I already wanted to extort a few years ago for that same video, and I put it in its moment in the knowledge of the National Police”, she said. (April 25, 2018, EFE/Practica Español)
