Almanseño Francisco Núñez is already formally the new president of the PP of Castilla-La Mancha, after collecting 92.8% of the support of the about one thousand delegates with the right to vote in the XIV Congress of the formation that is celebrated this Sunday in Albacete.
Specifically, of the 697 votes cast, it has received 610 positives, with 46 whites and 41 nulls, according to the results announced by the president of the Congress, Manuel Serrano.
Núñez, until now mayor of Almansa and president of the party in the province of Albacete, takes the witness of María Dolores de Cospedal, who leaves office after 12 years.
Francisco Núñez arrived as the only candidate after beating Carlos Velázquez in the primaries of September 27, prevailing in four of the five provinces and yielding only in Toledo by just 100 votes.
The new 'popular' leader will be the candidate of the party in the next regional elections on May 26, 2019, an appointment that comes with the challenge of repeating the two consecutive electoral victories of the PP in 2011 and 2015 and with an eye on in unseating Emiliano García-Page of the Palace of Fuensalida.
THE HYMN TO PREMIERE
The new president of the PP in Castilla-La Mancha, Francisco Núñez, has been released as a new leader asking those attending the Regional Congress to "stand" to sound the National Anthem, beginning his speech with words of exaltation to Spanish nationalism .
In his first words after being elected with the support of 92.8% of the delegates, Núñez has told Pedro Sánchez that they will not "allow" him to "continue playing with Spain."
In addition to thanking the members for the trust placed in him, and affirming that the militants are the main base of the party, he has praised the work of María Dolores Cospedal. "I have worked a lot on your hand and without your work these years, today I would not be here," he said.
She has told him that she has shared with her "alegrías and some bad time", she has stressed that she is an "intelligent, prepared" woman, with an infinite leadership capacity and who managed to "straighten the course of the boat". "You made us winners and that merit is yours, president," he said. "With you everything began."
Pablo Casado has stressed having "brought freshness" and having "modernized" the PP, and be the president who needs the party. He has also praised him for having demonstrated that he can "mark the political agenda" and that with his leadership, and the PP, he is going to "throw Pedro Sánchez de La Moncloa".
PAGE, POLITICO SIN ALMA
On the other hand and in regional key, the new regional president of the PP has argued that Castilla-La Mancha can not continue as is, with a president "desnortado", whose intention is to stay in government "at the cost of whatever", although it is "from the recoil of Castilla-La Mancha"
Garcia-Page is "a politician without a soul" that has 13,000 families that have lost the benefit for family care, the "worst doctor-patient ratio" and Albacete does not have the promised hospital, "one of the great lies". "Surgical waiting lists are the worst in Spain and, if you do not like them, delete them from the website", criticized.
And is that the new leader of the PP considers that García-Page is "a burden" for Castilla-La Mancha, because "ruined" the region and now the "return to ruin", with a debt approaching 15,000 million of euros. It is the region "where it is harder to live, the one that grows less in the national set", and its president, he affirmed, is "turning his back" on the farmers.
Therefore, the president of the PP has recriminated García-Page who "applauds" the transfers of Pedro Sánchez without worrying about whether there is enough water for this land. "He is the worst footman of Pedro Sánchez", added Núñez, who added that "he lacked time, when Sanchez won, to be" the first palmer ".
Given this, his commitment – has advanced – is to be the president of Castilla-La Mancha to govern "in coalition with civil society", that will be his "government partner". His claim is a region "on equality, that does not discriminate against anyone" and where the youth "take the witness".
Thus the things, the new president of the PP of Castilla-La Mancha has concluded being convinced that it is going to win the elections in 2019 and that the García-Page project has an "expiration date".
