The barons ask to relieve Casado por Feijóo upon his arrival in Genoa

Key day for the future of the Popular Party. The official countdown to the resignation of Pablo Casado is underway. The trickle of territorial barons this afternoon at the gates of the national headquarters sounded in unison: Casado must leave the presidency as soon as possible and make way for the new stage led by Alberto Núñez Feijóo. There was not a single public fissure. With more or less forcefulness, the territorial leaders demanded forceful decisions after the meeting that all of them hold today from eight in the afternoon in Genoa. The only one great absentee is Isabel Díaz Ayuso, president of the Community of Madrid, who, not leading the Madrid PP, was not invited. In her place was Pío García Escudero, at the head of the party since the departure of Cristina Cifuentes without a congress through.

“When I say that Feijóo takes a step, it means that Casado takes it to the side”said the president of the Basque PP, Carlos Iturgaiz, another of the bets of the current popular leader for the Basque elections. Next came the leader of the PP of Castilla La-Mancha, Paco Nunezwhich was also very clear: “Drastic measures must be taken. I have never hidden that Feijóo is a benchmark for the party. We are going to listen to them both & rdquor ;.

Also Alfonso Fernández-Mañueco, president of Castilla y León, who is currently negotiating his future government: “We need a congress as quickly as possible and one of unity. If there is something in which public officials and PP members agree, it is that Feijóo is a reference for all & rdquor ;, he settled.

His name is everywhere. As El Periódico de España, a newspaper of the same group, Prensa Ibérica, already announced, that this newspaper, last Friday, after the controversial internal crisis unleashed between the national leadership and the president of the Community, different territories began to organize with the objective not to already from bring about the cessation of Teodoro Garcia Egea (who ended up resigning yesterday) but with the intention of kicking Casado out.

That movement lit the fuse throughout the game in a few hours and everything went to more the weekend. Casado and García Egea began to count on support among the provincial presidents, also counting on a majority of the parliamentary group in Congress. On Sundaythe demonstration in support of Ayuso brought together 3,000 people at the gates of Genoa confirming a feeling that the different leaders in their respective territories had been warning about: the militancy and public officials demanded the immediate departure of Casado to revive the party.

The lace was the management committee on Monday and the total rejection of the deputies in Congress to the continuity of Casado this Tuesday, with a statement that left no doubt. Egea resigned and the party president wanted to attend Wednesday’s meeting from his position. It’ll be hard to keep it up when it’s over.

Almost all the regional presidents who spoke were in the same line. One of those who later arrived, the Andalusian Juanma Moreno Bonilla, also stressed “the enormous political and management experience & rdquor; of Feijóo, “and a very good repetition & rdquor ;. After emphasizing “the enormous problem that the PP has right now & rdquor ;, he also wanted to give Casado air, recognizing his right to” give him his time & rdquor; because he “has been fighting for the party for three years & rdquor ;.

Moreno wanted to make it clear that “the solution is collective & rdquor; and “it does not depend only on a name & rdquor;, although he reiterated again the need to “strengthen & rdquor; and the popular acronyms. Moreno Bonilla’s position, as published by this newspaper, is also in line with the point of view of the orbit of leaders who are currently taking the reins of the formation, convinced that “there is no need to be cruel & rdquor; with the departure of Casado and that the ideal thing would be to agree on a good exit for the current president tonight.
