Irene Montero he is in the spotlight for his policy to sign people for his team. The minister of Equality has been perfecting a formula for years to form its staff of senior ministerial positions and advisers. Also the leader of We can has thus developed a very polished strategy to capture key people from critical currents of the purple formation to weaken them and thus have the absolute control of the purple political space.
In some circles, Irene Montero is spoken of as «the praying mantis of Podemos» that he is used to “buying people from the rival internal teams of United We Can and when he no longer serves them, he stops them.” The recent trip to the United States has brought to the fore the court that surrounds the head of Equality.
In the first place, the hiring of Isa Serra as an adviser. This former deputy in the Assembly of Madrid and party spokesperson, she was one of the leaders of the anticapi current. However, Irene Montero captured her and joined her in the ranks of the most pro-government hard core. Serra no longer wants to know anything about anti-capitalistswhich has been configured as an independent political party, and has had a son with Juanma del Olmo, former head of Strategy and Communication of Podemos and now simply responsible for the party’s School of Communication. Also from that sector he captured Beatrice Gimeno as head of the Women’s Institute, an official body of the Ministry, which has now returned to the parliamentary group in the Madrid Assembly.

Similarly, Irene Montero has recruited as advisers Manel Rosformer assistant to Xavi Domenech; Ruben Juste, ex-right hand of Gloria Elizo, fractious leader of Podemos; Celia Meyer, councilor of Manuela Carmena linked to the most radical sectors of Now Madrid (Let’s win); either Clara Alonso and Carlos Sanchez Mato, leaders of the United Left. Irene Montero also entrusted her office to Amanda Meyer, but his movements in the recent elections in Andalusia in favor of Yolanda Díaz caused a loss of confidence in the minister. Precisely her partner is Toni Valero, leader of IU Andalucía who stole from Podemos all the weight in the Por Andalucía candidacy.
