The extraordinary congress of the PSPV that must choose the successor of Ximo Puig will be held on March 22, 23, and 24. And if there are more than two candidates and therefore primaries are held to elect the new general secretary, the socialist militants will vote on February 25; and if there are more than three candidates and a second round will be held, it will be on March 3. The congress will be held on bless you
This was announced by the Secretary-General, Ximo Puig, in a press conference after the National Executive Commission (CEN), where he emphasized that this calendar must be endorsed by the National Committee this Saturday and recognized that the Galician elections are causing this. conclave to be delayed.
Puig pointed that out It wants to be a congress “open to citizens” and emphasizes the symbolic importance of Benicàssim for the socialists because it is this city where the Statute of Autonomy was agreed.
In this way, a national committee should be held on January 27, which should sign the calendar and set the number of delegates that will participate, as well as the city where it will be held. In principle, the conclave should be held in the city of Castelló, but it could go to Valencia.
After the national committee, the candidates have two days, January 28 and 29, to present their pre-candidacies. Of those, January 31 to February 7 is the deadline for formalizing guarantees, and once validated, the internal election campaign will begin from February 8 to 23. If there are two candidates, the primaries will be held on February 25; if there are three, the second round will take place on March 3. Whether the second round is necessary or not, the congress will take place on March 22, 23, and 24.
So far, the only person from Elche, Alejandro Soler, like the mayor of Mislata, Carlos Fernandez Bielsa, has indicated their willingness to present a candidacy. There is a lot of speculation about the name of Minister Diana Morant as a person with consensus, but so far she has not spoken openly about that option. The socialists of Valencia gave themselves until this past Sunday as the deadline for an agreement to avoid the primaries, an agreement that ultimately did not happen, so the executive has already set a calendar for the whole process in Congress.
