United Left leader 'will not break up the party', despite headlines
03 January 2016 @ 14:23

LEADER of political team United Left, Alberto Garzón was perplexed to find out second-hand that he was planning on scrapping the party.

A Spanish daily broadsheet reported how Garzón intended to break up Izquierda Unida, or IU, which won two seats in the general election on December 20 – but the first Garzón (pictured) himself knew about it was when he read it on the newspaper's Twitter site.

According to the article, IU – which has branches all over Spain in several regions – would be disbanded and Garzón would set up a brand-new party.

The newspaper tweeted: “Albert Garzón is putting an end to United Left.”

Garzón responded with, “???????”

Next, he reassured everyone on his personal Facebook site that, 'naturally', his party 'is not going to die or disappear'.

“We do need to rethink left-wing politics, though,” Garzón admitted.
