The Political Table of Eh Bildu suggests the Pello Otxandiano as a candidate for the lehendakari of the sovereigntist formation in the next elections of Euskadi in 2024. The leadership of the sovereigntist formation thinks that it chose him for his “solvency, passion and soul”, and believes that it is “a qualitative investment” , although his candidacy must be endorsed by the militant in the internal process that begins next Monday.
The general coordinator of EH Bildu, Arnaldo Otegiwho resigned from being a candidate when his disqualification sentence ended, announced this in an emergency appearance after the decision made by the Political Table this Monday.
Pello Otxandiano is the bet to challenge Imanol Pradales (PNV) for Lehendakritza and succeed, in this way, Maddalen Iriarte, candidate of EH Bildu for the presidency of the Basque Government in the 2020 elections and who in the last end. in the regional elections, he is the candidate for the general representative of Gipuzkoa.
Party Program Director
Otxandiano, 40 years old and a native of Otxandio (Bizkaia), has an important political background within the formation of sovereignty and until now became Program Director. Doctor of Telecommunications Engineering, he is considered one of the ideologues of EH Bildu.
Otxandiano represents, explained Otegi, a “new generation” and emphasized his “strength”: “In addition to solvency, security, commitment to the country, he has two important things: the love for to change things and soul to regain for this country the stage it needs and wants.
EH-Bildu thus joins the current trend in Euskadi not to repeat the existing candidates in 2020, as in the case of PNV or PP, where Javier de Andrés will replace Carlos Iturgaiz as head of the list.
