In full trouble about the suspension of Luis Rubiales as president of the Spanish Football Federation after his non-consensual kiss to the player Jenni Hermoso and his indecent gestures in the box of the stadium of the women’s World Cup final, in Sydney, Sumar points out that the Spanish Football Federation, violates the regulations of the Sports Law because there is no parity in the highest body of Spanish football. Currently, according to the party of the second vice president of the Government in a statement, there are only 38 women out of 411 members. In other words, 9% of the squad, which would breach the Sports Law. For this reason, the party has presented a new complaint this Monday that it has sent to the Higher Sports Council (CSD) because it considers that it breaches the obligation of parity, as indicated in article 47 of the Law.
Sumar has also requested and with “extraordinary character” the new Board of Directors of the FEF to dissolve “immediately” so that a new one that complies with this parity can be appointed. Right now, the acting president is Pedro Rocha, who replaced Luis Rubiales last Friday after being suspended by FIFA for three months as a precautionary measure.
In the letter, sent this Monday to the Minister of Culture and Sports, Miquel Iceta, Add that he correct a “deficiency” in the new Sports Law, approved on December 30, 2022 by the Government of Pedro Sánchez. The leader of Sumar, Yolanda Díaz, says in that letter, to which this newspaper has had access, that the new regulations do not have a sanctioning regime and, therefore, it is necessary to incorporate a regulation into the law so that all those associations and sports federations that fail to comply with the new law may be penalized. Sumar sources indicate that these sanctions would later be incorporated into the law, since there is no necessary regulation for those cases in which the law is breached. Despite being in a government in office, the Executive could incorporate said regulation, as indicated by Sumar sources.
