The still president of the Junta de Extremadura, Guillermo Fernández Vara, “will try” to govern again. In a public appearance after the meeting of the Regional Executive Commission of the PSOE to analyze the electoral results, he launched three messages: “The PSOE won in Extremadura, both in the regional and municipal elections”, “Stability is very important and we must clear the election process as soon as possible” and “My future is the least of it, but if I am not president I will open the succession in the party in the autumn.”
Fernández Vara’s explanations were highly anticipated after the triumphalism of the PP in the region, which proclaimed itself the winner in the elections last Sunday. It is true that PSOE and PP were tied in seats, 28 each, but the Socialists got 6,276 more votes than María Guardiola’s party, 1% more support. For this reason, the PSOE candidate has insisted that “it would be unheard of” for the winners to abstain in order to allow those who came second to govern.
Even so, becoming president of the Junta de Extremadura again seems very difficult. The PSOE needs the support of United for Extremadura, which won four seats. Therefore, the sum of deputies remains at 32, one of the majority that Vox does contribute (five seats to Vox) to the popular.
However, the PP candidate has already publicly asked the parties of the left bloc to abstain in order to achieve a minority government and leave the extreme right out, despite the fact that Vox has already warned that it will enforce each of the five deputies with whom it will be released in the Extremaduran Legislative Chamber. But the head of the Extremaduran socialists has been blunt: “When has it happened in history that the one who wins the elections abstains so that those who lose govern? It doesn’t seem reasonable.”
Faced with this scenario, Fernández Vara has also defended “stability” and for this he has asked that the entire process of electing the president be clarified “as soon as possible”, especially since with the calling of general elections on July 23 “we will leave from talking about the problems of the people of Extremadura to talk about the problems of Spain”.
This same week the decree establishing the Assembly will be signed, although the day of the celebration will depend on the conversations that Fernández Vara will hold in the coming days, as he has said. At that time, the machinery will start to choose the person who will lead the Board for the next four years.
The socialist will take possession of his seat, but in the event that he is not sworn in as president, he will leave the first political line and open the succession process in the PSOE of Extremadura, which will lead to a congress next autumn. “My future is the least of it, I don’t know what people are surprised at,” he stated after it was learned on Monday that he had asked the Ministry of Justice to return to his position as forensic doctor at the Institute of Legal Medicine in Badajoz. As he explained, it is a “normal” procedure to warn that this situation can occur, especially since there are two people who currently occupy that position.
