There are six days left until the municipal and regional elections, with several elections expected to be very tense in several places. The map produced by the May 28 count may not reflect the final distribution of local and regional power as many governments decide on post-election pacts. With the latest surveys, PP is starting to review. The options for winning in Castilla-La Mancha and Extremadura are limited at best. And Alberto Núñez Feijo is willing to let Emiliano García Paige and Alejandro Vara keep their positions if in return the PSOE does the same in the rest of the communities where the right wins. To do this, he believes that the socialist barons will put pressure on Pedro Sánchez on the same night as the election.
This is what PP sources tell elDiario.es. Thus, Feiyo would achieve a double goal. First, the gains of several regional governments, which are currently up in the air due to post-election arithmetic. The Community of Valencia, Aragon, the Balearic Islands, La Rioja or Cantabria are communities that will have very tough results and where winning the elections will not guarantee the addition of the majority needed for investment.
The PP’s options in these regions run on the addition of Vox, a scenario that Feijo is willing to consider, but which he prefers to avoid, as it would stretch the image of a centrist and moderate politician that he wants to project. Six months before the general election, where everything is on the line.
If the scenario after 28 million refers to independent negotiations, Feijo will not be able to prevent regional and municipal candidates from joining Vox. Or you won’t be able to avoid them all. But if there is a framework agreement with the PSOE that applies to all of Spain, it will be easier.
Feijo’s hope, according to management sources, is that his candidates in Castilla-La Mancha, Paco Núñez, and Extremadura, María José Guardiola, will “burn out” themselves and stop trying to get together with Vox (if the money could be given). ) let Page and Vara keep the government, provided the same equation is repeated in the rest of the communities.
According to the thesis they develop in 13-year-old Genoa, both barons pressured Sánchez to maintain his position and power. Thus, after deliberation, Sánchez would reject any option to retain the two in the remaining regions.
“We’re not going to take another chance,” he said at a central campaign event in Valencia on Sunday, where he appealed to the “useful vote” and directly mentioned supporters of Vox, Ciudadanos and PSOE. While the PP has made outrageous use of the controversy over EH Bildu candidates, the polls show a resilience of the Socialists and Podemos-IU that Feijóo’s strategists did not count on.
This weekend, the Galician chose to reduce references to EH Bildu and ETA in his speech. At the same time, Isabel Díaz Ayuso traveled to Bilbao to point out that the Basque coalition was using “awakened ideology” to hide its true purpose and insisted on its illegalization. Ayuso is not alone in opposing the view of the PP leadership, which rejects this possibility. Also his candidate in Murcia, Fernando López Miras, suggested this week that Bildu should be made illegal. and Jose Maria Aznari, whose legacy Feiyo vigorously defended. The former president did not mind confronting the current leader of his party.
