laSexta learned that Toni Cantó, a former citizen deputy, had contacts throughout the afternoon with the Popular Party and Isabel Díaz Ayuso, the president of the Community of Madrid. Cantó reportedly contacted the “popular” in the midst of the pre-campaign for the May 4 regional elections to see the formula in which he could be incorporated into the 4-M electoral lists with the PP.

What I want to say to the leadership of my party is that today I am unemployed, I have no salary and I will not accept the lessons of those who fall back on their seats ”explained . And he added: “I am a free man and I will do what I want”, reiterating that until then he had not “received an offer from Genoa”.
