“We all believe he is the best, we want him to be the lehendakari,” he insisted, “and it surely will be.”
Asked about the possibility that the national PP leadership designates another candidate, Oyarzabal has responded that “in Genoa and everywhere they know that Alfonso Alonso is the leader of the PP in the Basque Country and is the one who best represents the project that is going to defend the party in the coming years. ”
He has again pointed out that, in the face of the Basque elections, the PP wants to bring together all the voters who defend the Constitution and who want to “stand up” to the “nationalist regime” and parties like the PSE, which has become a ” mere comparsa “of the PNV and has given up being an alternative.
He has also referred to United We as a formation that has become a partner of the PNV, in reference to the support of the left-wing coalition to this year’s Basque budgets, and EH Bildu as another partner of the nationalists “for their sovereignist plans “.
