After two weeks of pure silence, which implied that the Canary Islands Coalition and PSOE were going to try everything to continue governing Güímar, these two parties achieved the support of United Yes We Can last night, so that the nationalist Gustavo Pérez -got 500 more votes than the socialist Airam Puerta, both with five councilors – continues to be mayor, now alone, within a tripartite, when Nuria Caraballero (USP) also enters the local government, despite the fact that this formation has among its red lines agreeing with nationalists, as these have to agree with Podemos or with Vox.
The so-called Tagoror Pact was signed last night by the three heads of the list and places Gustavo Pérez as mayor, Airam Puerta as first deputy mayor and Nayra Caraballero as second deputy mayor.
With the new majority, located at 11 councilors, the Popular Party lacked support, since it had the favorable vote of Nueva Canarias (Carlos Llarena), but United Sí Podemos conveyed its refusal to agree and, beyond a meeting as a courtesy with the Canary Islands Coalition, he did not receive any call to sit down and talk about a pact that would be the most natural in the current situation of Canarian politics. Not even the attempts of the insular and regional CC leaders with their popular counterparts convinced the Güimareros nationalists to support the former mayor Luisi Castro, who for the second time will remain in the opposition, being by far the most voted.
And in the town hall of Arico?
And in Arico? Well almost the same. Olivia Delgado (PSOE), the candidate with the most votes, needs one more councilor to be able to take the baton this Saturday. Everything happens because one or the two councilors of Arico Somos Todos offer their support, but the Canarian Coalition and the Popular Party do not give their arm to twist, although they did not accept, until Friday, that José Luis Hervella (Arico Somos Todos) was Mayor.
The socialist Olivia Delgado could govern, even if she was in a minority.
