The Board of Directors of the Citizens of the City of Córdoba resigned this Thursday over a disagreement with Provincial Organization Secretary Ángel Pimentel, who was named number one on the list in the June 19 regional elections. The resignation of nine members of the group’s leadership came two days before the nomination of Juan Marin this Saturday in the same city. The vice-president of the board will be surrounded by the other seven heads of the Andalusian list and the chairman of the party, Ines Arrimadas.

“It was the straw that broke the camel’s back,” said Manolo Montalvo, one of the nine members of the outgoing council, in an interview with EL PAÍS. According to Montalvo, disagreements with the Cs provincial headquarters have been repeated for a long time. In a letter of resignation sent this Thursday, they denounce Pimentel’s removal of their decision-making on party-related matters and denounce as “dedocracy” the appointment of the secretary of the number one provincial organization. As established by the statutes, Ciudadanos held only primaries to elect their candidate in Málaga. In provinces with fewer than 350 branches, such as Córdoba and the rest of the districts, with the exception of Seville, for which Marin is running, the statutes do not require their convocation.

Desertion occurs after the dissolution of party positions after an election has been called. The first four deputies of the parliamentary group, who left two weeks ago, were joined by other parliamentarians such as Sergio Romero, the group’s former press secretary, and Fran Carrillo, the deputy from Córdoba, who opposed Marin in the December primaries. Carrillo was in second place, but far from stepping on the heels of the vice president. The party accuses the Cordovan of being behind the blocking of the resignation of the directive. Montalvo denies this.

Marin reiterated this Friday that positions are determined by provincial committees, the executive branch, and that they are approved in accordance with the charter. The vice president also accused the deserters of acting in “self-interest” and “falling out of line” for not being listed. Some lists that were also closed this Friday, the day before the presentation in Córdoba, where, in addition to Arrimadas, other members of the national leadership will take part, such as Cs general secretary Marina Bravo or deputy Miguel Gutiérrez. who will coordinate the campaign.

Additional Information

The Cs organization downplays this submissiveness. They emphasize that the election of Pimentel is in accordance with the rules and that those who remain in Cs are those who “really want to be”. Both Montalvo and seven other board members refuse to leave the party. Among Marin, they admit that announcing their resignation just two days before the event is “not good”, but prefer to focus on the upcoming campaign.

The Ciudadanos campaign for Andalusian women is on the rise, the polls against it and the ballast of the elections in Castile and León, where the party retained only the seat of Francisco Igea. The latest study by the Center for Andalusian Studies (Centra), published a month and a half ago, when electoral success was expected even before the summer, gives Ciudadanos two seats in the next election, compared to the 21 he won in 2018. the party’s internal scores range from zero to five, with seats in Malaga, Seville and Cadiz being the main targets. Arrimadas, who has already been with Marin at the fairs in Seville and Jerez de la Frontera, dressed in flamenco and dancing sevillan, will dress the vice president in Córdoba and focus on promoting the candidate in the election race on the 19th. June.

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 intends to win the battle of “history” against the PP and emphasize that the “great achievements” of the coalition government are a response to the “actions” of Ciudadanos and, in addition, to the ministries run by C. The idea is not to hide the brand of the party, which at the national level, much reviled because of poor results, but in extolling the figure of Marin, “highly recognized” in Andalusia.

The party also intends, as it did in Castile and León, to recruit young people from Ciudadanos in order to restore the pulse of affiliates and attract the undecided. From this Thursday, the organization has launched a campaign under the slogan “Liberal Revolution” in which it denounces the dangerous conditions it believes young people in Spain are in due to the policies of the Sánchez government.
