MADRID, Sep. 2 (.) –
The president of Ciudadanos, Inés Arrimadas, will transfer this Monday to the Executive of the party her intention to convene a congress to decide the leadership of the ‘orange’ formation when the refoundation process ends, the results of which are expected early next year.
This has been confirmed by party sources, after the information provided by ‘ABC’. According to Europa Press, it is an idea that Arrimadas had in his head since June, after the debacle in the Andalusian regional elections.
Being the work of the refoundation advanced and seeing that the deadlines that the party handled at the beginning can be met -six months from the beginning of the process- the assembly is already a step that can be specified.
THE CRITICS DEMAND IT NOW
Arrimadas’ intention to hold an extraordinary assembly to elect the party’s new leadership comes after the emergence of the platform of critics, Somos Ciudadanos, which on Monday published a manifesto calling for Arrimadas’s resignation and the holding of a congress to define the new direction and leadership of the party.
The spokesman for the refoundation process of Ciudadanos and deputy of Congress, Guillermo Díaz, explained this Thursday that the party hopes to present the results of the refoundation process “early next year” to reach the regional and municipal elections with “another format “.
In the same way, he advanced that the group in charge of the refoundation plans to present this Saturday to the Citizens Executive a calendar with the meetings that they are going to carry out in the coming months. Once approved by the executive, they will begin this “listening process” throughout Spain.
CARLOS PÉREZ NIEVAS, NEW SECRETARY OF ORGANIZATION
On the other hand, the same sources confirm that the coordinator of Ciudadanos in Navarra, Carlos Pérez-Nievas, who this Friday has accompanied Inés Arrimadas in Alsasua, will be the one who replaces the resigned Borja González as Secretary of Organization of the party.
González announced his resignation this Thursday, two and a half years after being appointed by Arrimadas and in the process of being refounded and after the publication of the critics’ manifesto. Of course, he wanted to make it clear that it is an exit “agreed” with the president, whom he thanked for his trust in these years.
