The leadership of the Galician PSOE disavows the provincial executive of Ourense and says that it will not negotiate with Jácome

The provincial executive of the PSOE in Ourense unanimously approved negotiating with the leader of Democracia Ourensana, Gonzalo Pérez Jácome, to remove the Baltar from the Diputación de Ourense after more than three decades controlling the provincial institution between father and son. But the movement, which does not have the blessing of the leadership of the socialists in Galicia. The general secretary, Valentín González Formoso, has disavowed his fellow Ourensans, led by Rafael Rodríguez Villarino: “It is clear that the PSOE is not going to negotiate anything with Jácome.” Socialist sources have told that the ones they would do would be to accept the votes of Democraria Ourensana to the candidate they present to the Provincial Council, but without reaching an agreement with the formation of the current mayor of Ourense.

The Galician National Executive Commission that addressed this Thursday the result of the 28M and the policy of pacts after the elections. Formoso told the media at the end that the party’s agreement is to launch a negotiating commission with the BNG to “guarantee the investiture of progressive governments” in local entities and, but he has not cleared what will happen with the Ourense case. In any case, he has stressed that the Galician leadership is competent to decide on agreements, which “will have to endorse Ferraz.” “It will be the Galician leadership that has to be entrusted with this task of negotiating pacts in any province and city,” he insisted. On whether Ourense will require an exception, the general secretary of the PSdeG replied that what they are looking for is a framework agreement with the BNG and there “there are no exceptions.”

A pact between the PSOE in the province of Ourense and Jácome would allow a historic replacement in the Provincial Council, from which the Baltar family has deployed its power throughout the province. And it would be a 180 degree turn in the position of the Socialists with respect to the controversial mayor of Ourense. The agreement would have to go through leaving the way free for him to repeat in the City Council after the unexpected result in the municipal elections, in which the number of votes and the number of councilors increased: it has gone from seven to 10 and has placed Democracia Ourensana as the the most voted force in the city amid the scandals over the audios in which he boasts of knowing how to launder money.

But during the campaign, the PSOE candidate in the provincial capital, Paco Rodríguez, expressed his refusal to reach agreements with Jácome and left open the possibility of an understanding with the PP so that the list with the most votes of the two would govern. The representation obtained between the two, however, does not add up to enough councilors and, to evict Jácome from the Mayor’s Office, an agreement would be necessary that included the BNG. They have already made a move: the PP candidate, Manuel Cabezas, assured the media this Thursday that he has already spoken with Rodríguez to find a way for Democracia Ourensana not to repeat: “We both fully share that the situation experienced in the Ourense City Council during in recent years it cannot happen again and, therefore, we absolutely agree to put an end to it on June 17.” On the same day, he launched a call for a meeting to which he also called the local leader of the BNG, Luís Seara.

On the same day, the president of the PPdeG, Alfonso Rueda, has avoided defending José Manuel Baltar as the party’s candidate for the Ourense Provincial Council. In response to a direct question in this regard, he has insisted that he defends that the list with the most votes in all places govern, but “without speaking of names” and has stated that, to this day, Baltar is “a councilor in Esgos, nothing further”. The puzzle of the provincial government and the city of Ourense is still not armed.
