Pello Otxandiano Kanpo will be EH Bildu’s candidate for lehendakari: The rest is for this political leadership election to be endorsed by the militant throughout the month. The independence party is betting on a young man, who belongs to the new generation of Bildu leaders and has no direct connection to the past terrorists. Arnaldo Otegi presents it today as “a qualitative investment.” “No one doubts his ability, his solvency and his love for this country. We bet on him, because he has two important things that no other candidate has: passion to change things and soul to recover the period that the country wants,” he said during an appearance in which he revealed the name of Otxandiano who will be the headliner of the independentists in the 2024 Basque elections, for which no date has been set.
Pello Otxandiano (Otxandio, Bizkaia, 40 years old) grew up in the hard core of Sortu, has been in its direction since the reconstruction in 2016, and then made the leap to the leadership of EH Bildu as Program Director. He is one of the most trusted people in Otegi, whom he advises on matters such as the environment, energy and education. He is considered one of the ideologues of the party. In recent years, it has internally defended the commitment made by EH Bildu to increase its institutional presence in all areas.
Otegi already announced a few weeks ago that EH Bildu needed a change. Their candidate for lehendakari belongs to the new generation of nationalist leaders who have no organic responsibilities during the ETA terrorist era. Otxandiano was elected councilor of his hometown in 2011 and has since dedicated himself to internal party tasks. In his last stage, he is in charge of the negotiation of the new Education law processed by the Basque Parliament, which will finally be approved this month with the rejection of the sovereigns.
