we Can begin to assume the defeat in the elections in andalusia. But the conclusions, for now shallow, vary according to the political families that make up the organization. Pablo Iglesias, the leader of the party, maintained, “the alert anti-fascist”, which launched on Sunday after discovering that they were in 17 seats, three fewer than they managed, we Can and UI separately in 2015. Teresa Rodríguez, head of Forward Andalucía and a member of the current anti-capitalist, refuses to resign and gives a period of a month and a half to analyze what has happened. Íñigo Errejón, components of its Churches, and a candidate for the Community of Madrid, returned to mark distance yesterday with the head of his party: “there are 400.000 andalusian fascists in Andalusia. There is humility and that”.
The three seats they lost Forward Andalucia translate into nearly 300,000 votes. That is to say, not strengthened the electoral base that we Can and IU were so independent and were also not able to absorb the fall of historical socialism. Given this scenario, the three leaders Can claim self-criticism, but three days after knowing the results, none presents a specific solution. “I want to respect the analysis of the partners in Andalusia,” said Churches. “You go on ahead and assume that what we could have done better”.

From Sevilla, Rodriguez announced a process of reflection of a month and a half to produce a document and propose a new strategy. During this period, the militancy will be able to contribute their suggestions. "We need to know what to improve and to accept it as a challenge to the future", explained the leader at the same time that he regretted not having managed to mobilize the voter left. The confluence maintains that the demobilization of the working class areas was the key factor in his defeat.
“you have to listen and attend to the causes: the transformations have left many people insecure and unhappy," said Errejón in an informative breakfast organized by Vanity Fair. "The battle is not against another political force, but against the breeding ground of fear: the inequality, the uncertainty. I am going to work to have a point of reference in Madrid", he added and stood out as an alternative to the upcoming regional elections in may and within his party. "The problem is that the people who want social justice, order and protection is an orphan. To these people there are who to go to."
“The fish is sold”
"Who are We Andalucia we have a clear commitment for the limitation of mandate” argued Rodriguez to respond to Juan Carlos Monedero, founder of the party, who called for his resignation. “The responsibility which now I assume is the start of a process of internal debate to guide the strategy”. The political leader has strengthened yesterday its leadership in Forward Andalusia in addition to the partnership with IU in the community: “it is Not revocable”.
In this position, Rodriguez returned to refuse to support or abstain before a possible pact between Citizens and the PSOE. "It is a fictitious scenario, there is by now such a possibility, is not going to bring it up," he said. As it did during the entire campaign, is erected in the “dam of the right-wing”. Forward Andalucia does not distinguish between so-called “right-wing soft and hard”. In that ideological position lies to the PP, Citizens, and Vox. "If Susana Diaz wants to do so, we don't", remachó.
“the endowment is all of the fish sold," he summarized to hold that fiscalizarán “more than ever” the next government of the Junta de Andalucía. With these words, settled a question that from Madrid it takes two days in question. Both Churches and Pablo Echenique, secretary of organization of Can, refer to your partner in Andalusia each time they are faced with the possibility of supporting an agreement between Susana Diaz, current president of the community, and John Marin, candidate of Citizens.
