Three candidates have started the race to replace Ximo Puig as the head of the socialists in Valencia

Despite successive delays in the call to promote possible agreements, the primaries and the next PSPV-PSOE congress have formally begun with three candidates running. If on Friday the provincial secretary of Alicante, deputy of Congress and former mayor of Elche, Alejandro Soler, announced his candidacy, this Saturday the provincial secretary of Valencia and mayor of Mislata, Carlos Fernández Bielsa, did it, when it ended of the Committee the National official called the congress of Valencian socialists for March 22 to 24 and the primary votes for February 25 in the first phase and March 3 in the second phase. The Minister of Science, Innovation and Universities Diana Morant, although she does not want to confirm it, is likely to present her candidacy this Monday.

The succession of Ximo Puig to the leadership of the PSPV, therefore, started a classic internal division in the processes of the party, especially if he was in the opposition. Although the former president of the Generalitat Valenciana Ximo Puig, the federal leadership of the PSOE and, more importantly, the president of the Government himself, Pedro Sánchez, see the option of Diana Morant favorably, the process so far has not developed of agreements that avoid confrontation in the polls between various sectors of the party.

Symptomatic, in any case, that all the candidates appealed to the dialogue and the will to negotiate, showing that none of them currently has a sufficient majority to win the congress.
