Rumours are starting about whether Susana Diaz, the leader of the PSOE in Andalusia, is going to be forced out this year. Several of the large beasts of the party in the region are opening talking about the need for “regeneration” and a “new generation”. The money seems to be on Juan Espadas (mayor of Seville) as new leader. Diaz was the regional President until she lost office in the last elections. She has since Continue reading Susana Díaz on the way out?
Susana Diaz, the President of Andalucía, visited Garrucha today and held a political rally in front of 1,200 people. She used the meeting to attack the ruling PP party ahead of the national elections, as well as everyone else, and not much else. She recently put her foot in it when she declared that she wanted to leave a better Andalucía “than the one we inherited”. Seeing as to how her party has been ruling Continue reading Andalusian President visited Garrucha today
Susana Diaz, President Elect of Andalucia and leader of the PSOE in the region, has faced up to the fact that none of the other parties will support her taking charge here without serious concessions being given – mainly in transparency and anti-corruption measures, which her party don’t seem too keen on – and so she will give her investiture one last try before calling for new elections. Her party is believed to have been Continue reading PSOE says one more try at Diaz’s investiture, then regional elections
Susana Diaz has said that she expects Andalucia to shut down if she isn’t quickly voted in as President – or in other words, she’ll shut the place down. In a clear warning to the other parties, she claimed today that unless her investiture goes ahead quickly, no political decisions can be taken. Summer tourism plans, health planning, investments, the organisation of the next school terms, hiring of functionaries, and even student loans will all Continue reading Diaz says she will shut Andalucia down if she isn’t voted in quickly
Susana Diazs second attempt to become President of Andalucia failed yesterday after all opposition parties united to deny her the privilege. “This is becoming ridiculous” she growled at TV cameras as she stormed out of Parliament. “Like the peasants dog, they won’t govern nor let anyone govern”. Hey, it sounds better in Spanish. ‘Como el perro del hortelano, ni gobiernan ni dejan gobernar’. Meanwhile, Rajoy has said he won’t interfere in Andalucian politics but warned Continue reading Unanimous “No” to Susana Diaz investiture
The Parliament of Andalucia voted against the investiture of Susana Diaz (PSOE) as President this afternoon. All three opposition parties voted against her. Her 47 PSOE MP’s voted for her, but the 62 MP’s of the PP, Podemos and Cuidadanos all voted against her. The result was mainly expected. She needed an absolute majority to become President. She will have a second opportunity this Friday, when she will only need a simple majority to become Continue reading Susana Diaz fails in first attempt to become President of Andalucia
The investiture of Susana Diaz as President of the Junta de Andalucía looks like it may happen after all, after Cuidadanos confirmed it was in advanced negotiations with the PSOE to back them. The throwing onto the dustheap of history of ex-Presidents Chaves and Griñán (both are wanted by Justice over allegations that they siphoned off billions when running the joint, but their Parliamentary Privilege has so far protected them) unblocked negotiations with Cuidadanos. Podemos Continue reading Cuidadanos prepares to back PSOE’s Susana for President of Andalusia
