The chief executive of Citizens has unanimously decided to initiate a negotiation with the Popular Party in order to reach a "compact of Government" in Andalusia, as announced by the leader, Albert Rivera, in press appearance after the meeting. The party wants an agreement for stable Government with the PP in Andalusia, who presides their candidate, John Marin, has explained Rivera, who requests the PSOE to assume that you have to pass the opposition and "do not block" that future covenant. Rivera wants the PSOE allow to govern Citizens and the PP in Andalusia, but does not rule out that it is Vox the training that enables. Even has wanted the leader of the Citizens to close the door to the extreme right party entered in that eventual Government. This possibility opens a gap by the candidate Citizens support for the mayor of Barcelona, Manuel Valls, who today has claimed that not reached any pact with Vox.
The intention of Rivera is that the PP to accept a agreement that Government should preside over Citizens, in principle, coalition, and that is the PSOE that permits abstaining in the investiture. Rivera wants the socialists to go to the opposition in any case, and does not contemplate any agreement with the PSOE. "I ask the PSOE that assume the defeat and pass to the opposition," he claimed. The strategy requires close that in agreement with the PP and put the PSOE to the frame of mind to allow that Government or Vox. Move the pressure to the PSOE. "I ask Susana Díaz that do not block Andalusia, because he has lost and does not have a majority," he underlined Rivera.
That is the plan, but Citizens do not waive a plan B in the Vox enter the equation. Up to two times has eluded Rivera in his appearance to rule out the extreme right party in this agreement. First, for any covenant. "Can you ensure that they are not going to reach any agreement with Vox?", we have asked the journalists. "Our absolute priority is that John Marin to lead the regional government of Andalusia. From there, with five political parties would be irresponsible to rule out all scenarios on the table," said Rivera. The leader has not rejected the possibility that Vox came in that Government, once Pablo Casado, president of the PP, is now offering regional andalusian to this training. "To this day I would be responsible to rule out things," answers Rivera.
