The Community of Madrid, chaired by Isabel Díaz Ayuso, signed on June 1 Ismael Sirio López Martín, former head of the PP’s social networks, who resigned in the middle of the civil war opened in the PP in February by the conservative leader and Paul Married. This expert will charge 59,740.82 euros per year, as announced eldiario.es and confirmed EL PAÍS through the regional transparency portal. His arrival at the Autonomous Administration, which has controlled the PP since 1995, not only expands its use as a refuge for positions and advisers who have lost their jobs. It also deepens its redesign as a structure perfectly adapted to the needs of Ayuso, who is preparing on all fronts for the municipal and regional election campaign of May 2023.
López resigned on February 18 from his position in the national PP, where he had been selected as head of communication on-line and he had stood out for an uninhibited public activity, in which he personified with photos some of the party’s clashes with the Government of Pedro Sánchez. Those were days of maximum tension in the PP, opened up by the confrontation between Casado and Ayuso on account of a regional government contract with the Priviet company to import masks from China in 2020, a business that allowed them to earn more than 55,000 euros per president’s brother
“I have made the very thoughtful decision to leave my position as head of communication on-line of the PP”, Lopez then wrote on his Twitter account. “Weeks ago I transferred my decision to the National Directorate and yesterday it was agreed to carry it out,” he added, trying to separate his departure from the open conflict between the two main political figures of the conservative formation. And he stressed: “My thanks to Pablo Casado and the entire popular team.”
Four months after that message written on Twitter, everything has changed radically. Casado is out of politics, and his right-hand man, Teodoro García Egea, no longer directs the conservative party. Alberto Núñez-Feijóo is now the party’s national benchmark, after reaching the presidency with the support of all the regional barons. And Ayuso has achieved what he wanted and was denied by Casado with the excuse of the contract that benefited his brother: to preside over the Madrid PP, which is modeling his image and likeness in the municipal elections and autonomous of 2023.
I have made the very thoughtful decision to leave my position as head of online communication for the PP.

This is reflected, for example, by the fact that he has selected a close friend of his for one of the four deputy secretaries, without caring that she is being investigated for administrative prevarication (Ana Millán, mayor of Arroyomolinos). Or that as coordinator of the training strategy he has signed another advisor to his Executive, Rafael Núñez Huesca, the inventor of the Vox brand.

What is the role of López, hired as a specialist in the Ministry of the Presidency? “It is in social networks, documentation, catalogue, archive and content”, replies a spokesman, without giving more details.
