Meritxell Batet says goodbye to his presidency of the Congress with a romantic date: in Zahara de los Atunes and 100 euros per dish

Meritxell Batet says goodbye to the presidency of Congress. The socialist, who has been in charge for four years, left behind the last meeting of the Permanent Deputation this Wednesday. As she has revealed ok diaryhis new destination is the Cadiz beach of Zahara de los Atunes together with his life partner, the former minister of justice Juan Carlos Field.

Both have been caught in the restaurant Antonio, an exclusive venue located on the beachfront and recognized by many as the temple of seafood. A good place to celebrate the agreement of Pedro Sanchez with the separatists.

The price of the restaurant does not fall below 100 euros per person. Something that does not seem to worry the socialist excessively, since for four long years she has been one of the best paid politicians in Spain. Her former position as president of Congress has allowed her to pocket the chilling figure of 214,444 euros per year.

Likewise, Batet, each month, added a bonus to her salary: 2,008.61 euros for being a deputy from a constituency other than Madrid, an amount that Congress paid to parliamentarians for the expenses of the Chamber’s activity. The one that was number two on the PSOE lists for Madrid in 2015, also had free travel available. For her, traveling by train, car, plane and even by boat, was part of her life, everything about her, including hers.

Meritxell Batet does not hide

The one who was president of Congress for four years does not hide her private life excessively. In 2019, three years after her separation with Jose Maria Lasalle, a former Popular Party politician, rumors of a new love with Juan Carlos Campo, his current partner, were already attributed to Batet. Currently, the relationship between Meritxell Batet and Juan Carlos Campo seems to be going smoothly.
