The strut of Albiol that can end up giving the final thrust

It is difficult to imagine Xavier García Albiol without Ramón Riera by his side. Born in Barcelona in 1948, the popular councilor in Badalona City Council has always been the man trusted by the current mayor of the city. Both have shared everything: a very long career in the opposition of the Badalona City Council, the euphoria of the arrival of the mayor, the disillusionment of the health cords to block their passage, the leap into politics national from the head of the PP in Catalonia and, as far as we know from this week, also a society in the tax haven of Belize.

The news that Riera was also part of society – which denied what Albiol had said the day before other politicians did not participate – may have been the final drop for an opposition that is already organizing to articulate a motion of censure. So many times Albiol’s mainstay, Riera may have now given the final blow to the mayor.

With a past in the paper industry, Riera is what is called a “historical leader”. Although his path has been linked to Albiol for the last 30 years, he has always led the PP. “Few people know the party like him,” said a popular leader. “It’s discreet and it doesn’t go where they don’t ask for it,” says a person who has worked side by side. That is why he has often held positions related to putting order in the internal organization of the party. And when he hasn’t had one, he has also acted as a peacemaker, as when with the party on fire for the struggle between Alberto Fernández Díaz and Daniel Sirera -which ended with the turbulent congress that enthroned Alícia Sánchez-Camacho- he would take dinner to his house to try, unsuccessfully, to make peace.
