The Galician PP congress to elect Rueda as a substitute for Feijóo will be the same weekend as the one that will elevate Ayuso in Madrid

The relay at the head of the PP in Galicia will take place on May 21 and 22, the same weekend for which the congress that will elevate Isabel Díaz Ayuso as president of the Madrid PP has been convened. The conclave that will place Alfonso Rueda, current first vice president of the Xunta and leader of the party in the province of Pontevedra, in command after the resignation of Alberto Núñez Feijóo will be in his own field, in the city of Pontevedra. The dates and the calendar have been approved by the regional board of directors of the party this Monday, with which the internal machinery is activated. As Feijóo himself stated this same day, the conclave will arrive after Rueda has already become president of the Xunta.

A few days ago Feijóo reached an agreement with the provincial barons in Galicia to avoid alternative weighty candidates to that of Rueda, after two of them -the one from Ourense, José Manuel Baltar, and the one from A Coruña, Diego Calvo- requested in public an extraordinary congress to avoid a hand-picked appointment of the outgoing president. Finally, there will be a congress, but only a ballot with possibilities for the militants to vote. In his speech after the board of directors, the already president of the Spanish PP sent a message to those who agreed to the agreement: “I want to think that in the congress there will be some person who will step forward, but there will also be those willing to take a step forward. a side. Without those willing to step aside there would probably be no one to step forward.” And he promised that, when the process is over, “there will be no territory that can feel victorious or defeated.”

In early April, Feijóo pointed out that a congress was not “the only democratic way” to elect his replacement. However, this Monday before the board of directors he assured that the one finally chosen was, since he took “the first step” to relieve Casado himself, the one he considered “the best way” to clear up the unknowns in Galicia.

He, he has assured, is not going to give “any indication of vote” in a conclave in which the ground has been prepared so that this is not necessary and there is a single candidacy. If someone wants to oppose the path outlined, he must present at least 90 endorsements before April 28. Feijóo did want to share several reflections with the leadership of the Galician PP. He has asked for unity and his successor has reminded him that “leadership is not gained by winning a congress, but after the fact” and that a leader of a political party obtains that condition “only if he is capable of maintaining leadership, responsibility and the height of sights to keep the party united and it accepts it as such”.

He has also told them that they must show “maturity” by putting the interests of Galicia before those of the party: “When we do it, Galicia connects with us.” And he has given them the task of conquering electorate spaces with a “wider, more open and plural” PP. “The internal processes are not done to exclude anyone or to subtract,” he insisted. He also claimed his role and asked the new management not to forget the “legacy”. Feijóo closed his speech with a phrase from the Seville congress in which he became president of the PP and which was pronounced by Mariano Rajoy: “There are phrases by Rajoy that are not easy to repeat, there are even those that are not easy to understand, but but allow me to do this mine: I ask for the president of the PPdeG the same support that I had, no more because it is impossible”.


This will be the 18th congress of the PP of Galicia. It will be the same weekend as the conclave in which Ayuso will rise to the leadership of the party in Madrid, which will be on May 20 and 21, and it is yet to be determined if the national leader is going to distribute his time between the two quotes.

In the Galician conclave, in which there will be no political presentations, the leadership will also be renewed. The news will arrive less than a year after the congress that had raised Feijóo again in the summer of 2021. The deadlines begin to run immediately. There are 15 days, until May 3, for affiliates to sign up to participate. At 8:00 p.m. on April 28, the deadline to present yourself as a candidate closes. The campaign will be from April 30 to May 9 and on the 10th of that month the local assemblies will be held to vote for the candidate and the delegates, who will be 1,500 in total. The president of the organizing commission is Elena Candia, the provincial leader in Lugo.
