Sumar refuses to go separately with Podemos in Valencia and together in Spain

Sumar has slammed the door of Podemos by rejecting his proposal to go separately in Valencia and together in the rest of Spain for the 23J elections. A coup by Yolanda Díaz after Podemos raised in the negotiating table for the coalition with summer the possibility of going separately in the Valencian Community, given the difficulties in accordance with commitment, and form part of the broad left-wing front in the rest of the country. His strategy would then have been as follows: go alone in Valencia, as has already been pointed out, and with Sumar in the rest of the country upon receiving the “vetoes” of commitment.

A decision that stands out, since Podemos has already offered the Valencian coalition to go together in the regional and municipal elections, but they have not wanted to lose the initials nor the heads of the list in a pact with Sumar. However, this alternative is not part of Yolanda Díaz’s plans, as has been revealed with the refusal to Podemos.

Sumar y Compromís, together

The pacts are not being written with the name of Podemos. Thus, late this Thursday, Sumar and the Compromís coalition have reached a pre-agreement to run together in the next elections on 23J, confirming the slam of Podemos. The Valencianistas have managed to lead the list for Valencia in the negotiation, which was one of the most discussed. Meanwhile, the conditions of the pact will be outlined this Friday when the Valencian formation meets its highest executive body to endorse the agreement with Yolanda Díaz’s project.

Compromís has always been clear in wanting the three heads of list in Alicante, Castellon y Valencia, in addition to maintaining the Compromís Sumar brand. Meanwhile, in these negotiations the need has always been for Podemos, which has not been able to advance its interests.

The refusal of Compromís has been based on the fact that they believe that they can take a part of the Podemos electorate by going aside. A thesis that is based on the results of the last regional elections, in which Podemos lost representation in the Valencian Parliament (from 8 to 0), while Compromís currently has 15 deputies.

This option has been raised given that Compromís until now “vetoed” its presence on the Valencian lists and, as a solution, the option of competing alone only in that territory to unblock the talks has been presented. In this regard, they emphasize that they have not received a response to this possibility.
