Pablo Casado has summoned the barons of the party for this Wednesday. In the middle of the open war in the PP, the president of the party will meet tomorrow with the leaders of the PP in the autonomous communities and cities.
Casado refuses to resign and summons the highest body of the PP to try to win the battle against the barons there
This meeting, which sources from the national leadership have informed Efe of on Tuesday, will take place at a very delicate moment for the Casado. After a long and tense meeting yesterday with his hard core, the president of the party decided to convene the National Board of Directors for next week, under pressure precisely from the barons, who have joined forces to force an extraordinary congress to speed up the departure of the current leadership.
Casado convened this body, the most important among congresses, forced by his own leadership. Most of its leaders -all except Pablo Montesinos, Antonio González Terol, Ana Beltrán and number two, Teodoro García Egea- demanded that an extraordinary congress be convened, and some of them threatened to resign if it was not convened.
Precisely this Tuesday, as ABC has advanced, there has been the first resignation in this body after the resignation of Belén Hoyo, until now director of the Electoral Committee.
The National Board of Directors has been convened next Monday, February 28, although it is expected that this date will be modified and postponed, after complaints from the Andalusian president, Juanma Moreno Bonilla, because the appointment coincides with Andalusia Day.
With the convening of the National Board of Directors next week, Casado seeks to postpone the solution to the open crisis and tried to resist the pressure of those who asked him to convene a congress already and the thousands of supporters of the Madrid president, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, who called for her resignation.
