Inés Arrimadas does not throw in the towel. She is determined to “refloat” Ciudadanos as a “liberal center party” despite seeing how the formation is cracking inside. Just over a year ago, in March 2020, at the height of the pandemic, the Catalan deputy took over the leadership in an extraordinary General Assembly convened after the catastrophe suffered in the general elections of November 11, 2019, in which they went from 57 to 10 seats, which retired Albert Rivera from political life. Since then the party has not raised its head. Two almost consecutive regional defeats: that of Catalonia, where they fell from 36 to six seats; and the most recent of Madrid, in which they were left out of the regional Assembly; an implacable hostile opa launched by Genoa, with the shadow of Albert Rivera feeding a possible convergence with the PP; and the abandonment of many public positions in the party, as well as a significant loss of militants, who complain of lack of participation.
