In Andalusia, which has the historic absolute majority of the Popular Party, are the results of Sunday’s elections predictable to the Valencian Community, given the municipal and regional elections next year? Depending on who you listen to, the answer is this or that. A call for common sense is made from the left bloc, taking into account what is happening in Andalusia, this need not be repeated within the Community. The PSPV-PSOE environment also relies on Ximo Puig’s leadership to reaffirm regional authority, despite the wear and tear caused by Mónica Oltra’s judicial situation. In the ranks of his party, the moderate spirit of the Consell chairman stands out, paralleling the path followed by Juan Manuel Moreno Bonilla until he reached an absolute majority. “Puig’s speech is capable of attracting centre-right voters,” they say as hope in the figure of their leader in the Socialist Party. On the other hand, enthusiasm was unleashed in the PP and it was strongly affirmed that the cycle change that should have resulted in the removal of the PSOE from both the central government and the Generalitat has already been set in motion.
Left parties hope to buy time, and with less than a year before the 2023 election, they are calling on the formations to be as unified as possible, a task that seems complicated after Oltra’s accusation and her political stance. He remains committed to his duties as Vice President. Puig said yesterday that he wants the future of his main partner at Botànic to be resolved this week, and other socialist officials believe that every day spent in the Compromís leader’s current position will be another day lost to the detriment of US interests. current regional government.
The theses defended by the PSPV-PSOE are very similar to those propagated by the Socialist Party at the national level. Despite the historical outcome that the PP has reaped, he denies there has been a cycle change and insists on pointing out that the results in autonomy may be reflected in other elections. Given the setback, it is believed that the best response is to deepen the definitions of the left and activate some bases that have been somewhat dormant lately. The message launched by PSPV also commits to “noiseless politics”, restoring the rhetoric of moderation and focusing on the problems of a citizen who has suffered for years from the consequences of the pandemic, the war in Ukraine and the war in Ukraine. The current economic crisis has been accentuated by inflation and rising energy prices.
It was stated yesterday from Compromís that each region “has its own characteristics” and that “the reality of Andalusia is very different from that of the Community”. These statements were made by Papi Robles, Acting Compromís at the Valencian Courts, deepening the idea that Sunday’s results are unpredictable. Podem also valued the polls’ verdict in his case through Organization Secretary Carles Fons: “You have to pay attention to what happens and deal with Botànic”.
These perspectives have nothing to do with those exhibited by PPCV. The public has pulled some of the usual war horses, like taxes, lack of water, or waiting lists for health. Its leader, Carlos Mazón, hastened to congratulate Moreno Bonilla. The Alicante politician believes that one of the keys to his Andalusian colleague’s historic victory, as Isabel Díaz Ayuso has done with similar nuances with Madrid voters, is his ability to win over his constituencies by recognizing his uniqueness. However, she believes the Valencians should bet her own way to get him for president next year.
While noting that Andalusians “have tried change after 40 years of socialist rule and realized that tax cuts are positive,” Mazón also warned of the danger of “radical partners going nowhere”.
