The candidate for the European Parliament of Compromís-Sumar Vicent Marzà has claimed that the Valencian coalition will be “determining” to build “a new Europe” that “develops social rights” and that, at the same time, “cope[s]” with the “rising of the extreme right.”

The party celebrated the start of the campaign this Thursday afternoon with an event in the Plaza de Patraix, in Valencia, with interventions by the candidates Vicent Marzà and Sandra Ruiz. Both have stressed that they are “very clear” about the representation of Compromís, “what we are going to do” in Europe, and have shown themselves “very eager” to face this electoral process.

Marzà has advanced that the pillars of the campaign will be the defense of the productive model, respect for the planet or the ecological transition, all to “build a new Europe” that, in turn, “stops the extreme right” and “develops social rights.”

He has also stressed the need to bring the Valencian agenda to Europe, for which he has opted to “defend our farmers and fishermen, our industry and our workers”, with the purpose of being able to have “more workplaces” and “higher quality” to “advance in rights and freedoms.”

Likewise, the Compromís-Sumar candidate has stressed the need to “face the rise of the extreme right”, a situation that “we already see” in the Valencian Community “what it is implying”, with “a pact between the right and the extreme right.” “We don’t want the same thing to happen in Europe,” he warned. To avoid this, he has claimed that the coalition will be “determining.”

During the Compromís-Sumar campaign there will be “proximity events” throughout the Valencian territory, with the aim of obtaining a Valencian MEP who “will stand up to change Europe, firmly defend Valencian interests in the European Parliament and stand up to the Valencian government of the shame of PP and Vox from Europe.”

In fact, this Friday, the head of Sumar’s list, Estrella Galán, will participate in a rally in Alicante, after which the following Sunday, June 2, the central event of the Compromís campaign will arrive in the Cabecera park in València with the Minister Sira Rego and state deputy Íñigo Errejón. The closing of the campaign, on Friday the 7th, will be in Valencia and will feature the vice president, minister and leader of Sumar, Yolanda Díaz.
