The president of Ciudadanos, Inés Arrimadas, will transfer this Monday to the Executive of the party its intention to convene a congress to decide the leadership of the ‘orange’ formation when the refounding process is finished, 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 works of the refoundation advanced and seeing that the deadlines that the party managed at the beginning can be met –six months from the beginning of the process— the assembly is already a step that can be achieved.
Arrimadas’s intention to hold an extraordinary assembly to elect the party’s new leadership comes after the emergence of the critics’ platform Somos Ciudadanos, which on Monday they made public a manifesto in which they asked for the resignation of Arrimadas and the celebration of a congress to define the new direction and leadership of the party.
Regional and municipal elections
The spokesman for the refoundation process of Ciudadanos and congressman, Guillermo Díaz, explained this Thursday that the party hopes to present the results of the refoundation process “at the beginning of 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.
On the other hand, the same sources confirm that the coordinator of Ciudadanos in Navarra, Carlos Pérez-Nievas, who this Friday accompanied Inés Arrimadas in Alsasuawill 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 “agreed” exit with the president, whom she thanked for her trust in these years.
