This Saturday, Ciudadano presented ballot papers for the upcoming June 19 elections in Andalusia. In the middle of the boulevard Grand Capitan in Córdoba, candidate Cs for the Board Juan Marín brought to the podium one by one the heads of the list of each constituency. In a little over a month, the formation will face yet another electoral process, polls against it, and a highly maligned brand nationally, so Marin’s campaign will focus on emphasizing over and over again that “change” and “good community outcomes are due to its actions in the coalition government. “We have come with our homework to present our candidacy to continue governing Andalusia. This is the goal: to continue to govern Andalusia,” emphasized the Vice President in his speech.
Candidate Cs for the Council was supported by the president of the party, Ines Arrimadas, and other leaders of the formation, such as the Congressman from Malaga, Guillermo Diaz, or the representative of the Catalan Parliament, Carlos Carrisos. “In this campaign, we present ourselves with the satisfaction of what we have done. We cannot lose this change,” Arrimadas repeated in his speech. “This election is to decide whether we want to continue on the same path we took in 2018. In just three and a half years, we have made a difference in Andalusia,” added the Cs leader who accused the president of being a junta, Juan Manuel Moreno, for carrying out “experiments with Andalusia” in the PP race to La Moncloa. An attack previously evaded by Marin: “We spoke clearly to the Andalusians. Andalusia is not a training ground or a springboard.”
The Marín team is preparing a campaign focused on “face to face” on the street, in which big events will be in the background. The party will fight for “history” for the PP and emphasize that the Council’s “great achievements” correspond to its entry into the government and ministries run by Cs. We do more than we say,” said the Andalusian leader. But, even so, they are aware of the poor results predicted by the polls. Marin urged to “forget” about the polls. The latest study by the Center for Andalusian Studies (Centra) gives Ciudadanos two seats in the next election, up from the 21 seats she won in 2018. The party’s internal scores range from zero to five, with seats from Malaga, Seville and Cadiz. basic goals.
The vice-president of Andalusia stressed that “there was no need” to present the names that lead the starting positions, because the citizens “know everything they have done”. But the truth is that last week the difficulties in closing the voter lists were exacerbated by the spate of desertions that have continued since the election date was announced.
What matters most is what happens closest. Subscribe so you don’t miss anything.
In fact, the board of directors of the local Córdoba group resigned this Thursday, just two days before the presentation ceremony in the same city. Doubts about the future of the formation, and the small number of seats they could win, affected the configuration of the ballots from the start. The party compiled the lists in accordance with the strategy of saving Marina’s closest people in the next legislature as much as possible.
That the vice-president was going to head the list for Sevilla was not in doubt, as this was the model that Cs followed in the two electoral processes in which the party participated in Andalusia. In both cases, the candidate for the Presidency of the Council was also Sevilla’s number one. After Marin took the starting position on the Seville bulletin, the formation made calculations for the rest of the positions and positions.
Marin wanted to save Parliament President Marta Bosquet, who supported Almería, a province where education has no chance, and Teresa Pardo, parliamentary representative, in the last legislative assembly. He also wanted to keep Employment Minister Rocío Blanco and took it for granted that Equality Minister Rocío Ruiz—a brake on Vox’s policy in government and one of Marín’s critics—would move to Huelva. where neither they have many options, according to learning sources.
Finally, Ruiz, who opened the performance in Córdoba, will take part as the head of the list in Cadiz, where better predictions give him a place. Ciudadanos turned the pre-campaign into an attack on Vox, according to party sources, and from the party’s side, they believe that Macarena Olona’s candidacy could lead to their formation. In this strategy, the presence of Ruiz, the object of considerable criticism from the ultraformation in this legislature, who has been asked to resign several times, plays an important role.
The vice president decided to put Bosque in second place in Seville, a place that Cs can link to that of Malaga. A province where, on the contrary, the calculations failed: Teresa Pardo lost the primaries to top the lists for this constituency last week against the Council’s territorial delegate in the province of Nuria Rodriguez.
