The intention, according to different sources, is to go for a joint bid for the future. We started last Wednesday the primary process to elect the candidates who will attend the European, regional and municipal elections that will take place in May 2019.
In the case of Podemos Madrid, the deadline to register individual candidacies was opened that same Wednesday, a prerequisite for being part of a list later. Those interested have until midnight this Tuesday to apply. The publication of the candidacies will be this Thursday, October 18.
On September 10, the mayor, Manuela Carmena, made official her intention to stand again as a candidate for an election. At a press conference, and after disengaging from any political formation, the councilor advanced that aims to lead a team with "the best in society."
From Podemos Madrid, its general secretary, Julio Rodríguez, warned a few days that to revalidate the Consistory in the upcoming municipal elections "no more" no vote and that we had to think about "unity" not only in the formation of abode but in all the "forces of change".
The circumstance arises that, precisely, the place that Rodriguez can occupy in the future list of Carmena is, among other things, what is being discussed between the environment of the mayor and the purple formation.
