The municipal Executive of the PSOE of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, meeting last Thursday, has been unanimously in favor of the intention expressed by its general secretary, Patricia Hernández, to present himself to the primary process for the candidacy for the municipality’s City Council. In the socialist formation they believe that their current leader is the ideal person to revalidate the Mayor’s Office won in 2019 and place CC back in the opposition.
In his speech, Hernández explained “that we face these elections with more enthusiasm and strength than the 2019 call. We have shown in just one year that it is possible to govern better for all of Santa Cruz and we will do it again.” The socialist pre-candidate already promised to “work with coherence, responsibility and seriousness” so that all the chicharreros and chicharreras return to find in the City Council the transformation tool that the city needs. Voices from the Executive affirmed that “Patricia Hernández is the only one who can crystallize the desire for change of the chicharreros and chicharreras and respond to the social mobilization that in 2020 showed her outrage in the streets at the use of turncoats to stop the change that the citizens voted in 2019.”
Despite the fact that the project led by Hernández only governed for one year, due to a motion of censure planned during confinement, the socialist predicts “a forceful electoral result.”
The PSOE of Santa Cruz will elect a candidacy for the Mayor’s Office of the municipality on October 9 in a primaries to which all its militancy is called. If no candidate gets half plus one of the votes in the first round, a second day of voting is scheduled for October 16. Patricia Hernández is the only member of the socialist formation that has expressed her intention to present herself to the process.
