Part of the members of the board of directors of Ciudadanos in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, where the party has the largest number of affiliates on the islands, has resigned and is considering dropping it, says the already former local coordinator of the formation, Alejandro Artiles. In a statement, Artiles explains that the resignation of his colleagues and his led to the dissolution of the Board of Directors of Ciudadanos in the capital of Gran Canaria.
The reason they give for thinking of leaving the party is their disagreement with the policy followed by the national leadership of Ciudadanos in the negotiation of the General State Budgets with the Government of Pedro Sánchez (PSOE).
In his opinion, these are budgets “created by a government that allows itself to be blackmailed by the Podemos communists, the ERC independentists and the radical and violent people of Bildu”, which is why they consider that the position of Ciudadanos regarding them shows “lack of programmatic coherence and political dignity.”
“The same incoherence and lack of dignity that the current leadership demonstrated in the Canary Islands by proposing contradictory guidelines that made it possible to sustain support for local governments with Podemos, by defected councilors who were later readmitted,” they allege.
Likewise, they criticize that the party “receives with open arms” now “leaders who left Ciudadanos and publicly attacked their criteria and decisions.”
