  • The Republican leader in Madrid meditates on the management’s offer to run for mayor of his hometown

ERC is going to put all the meat on the grill to revalidate their triumph of 2019 in the municipal, on a Catalan scale. According to ‘Nació Digital’, the leadership of the party, that is Oriol Junqueras and Marta Rovira, have offered the president of the Republican parliamentary group in Congress, Gabriel Rufián, head the list for the municipal of his hometown, Santa Coloma de Gramenet.

Party sources have confirmed the offer and that Ruffian is “meditating” an offer that, in any case, would be fully compatible with his seat in the Cortes. “We have all options open and we want to win everywhere”, another republican voice has asserted. This newspaper has not been able to locate the affected person to know his position.
