Within the framework of the negotiations for the formation of the new Government of La Laguna, both the PSOE and United may have already held their first bilateral meeting with Drago Verdes Canarias, which both formations have described as “positive”. It should be remembered that the sum of the ten councilors of the PSOE, with the two from Unidas se puede and the other two from Drago Verdes, who enters the City Council, would make it possible to repeat a progress pact in La Laguna.
From the Laguna PSOE, its Organization secretary and member of the negotiating committee, Óscar Olave, stated that the meeting with Drago Verdes was “a first contact to get to know each other” and assessed that it went “very well, very positive, with a lot of predisposition and willingness to talk and reach agreements”. Both parties have called for a second meeting, probably next week, to start talking and negotiating about programs “and address their requests and ours and try to reach agreements,” he said.
Along these lines, the United Nations candidate, Rubens Ascanio, also stated that his party’s meeting with Drago Verdes was “positive” and that “we are going with a calm but firm step.” “We are laying the foundations of the agreement and I hope that next week we will have a document that outlines a viable left-wing agreement program,” he added.
A specific date has not yet been set for a meeting of the three formations that could form this progress pact.
Likewise, the PSOE also held, last Tuesday, a first contact with both the CC and the PP. It should be remembered that the PP has registered a new appeal before the central Electoral Board of Madrid requesting that certain Vox ballots be annulled, and that they could give the PP its fourth councilor in the municipality, at the expense of Vox’s second.
The PP candidate in La Laguna, Ana Zurita, pointed out yesterday that there is still no resolution from the Central Board and when asked if they would go to administrative litigation, in the event that their appeal is rejected, she replied that “we are not considering it yet” .
In this regard, Óscar Olave explained that if this dispute arises, the inauguration could be delayed until July 7, from the June 17 scheduled for all municipalities, since it would be necessary to wait 20 more days for the resolution.
