The critical sector 'Between All' will finally go to the process of primary to the direction of En Marea that starts this Saturday, although the organizations that participate in the list have serious doubts about the voting system chosen by the direction headed by Luís Villares and they warn that they will be "vigilant" before the possible existence of irregularities.
This has been confirmed by sources of the candidacy consulted by Europa Press. In addition, the head of the list of 'Between All', the former deputy David Bruzos, said in the Chain Being that they went ahead in the process, after days of deliberations between the different parties that make up the candidacy, which considered withdrawing from the process before the "coup" practices that, they say, have been carried out by the current leadership of the instrumental party, which decided to change the voting system in recent days.
After days of deliberations in which the balance came closer to abandoning the process, finally 'Entre Todas' will go to the primaries despite their doubts about the voting system, which they believe oriented towards favoring the interests of the continuist candidate 'Coidando a Casa', headed by Luis Villares.
The critical sector considers that the new voting system does not offer enough "guarantees" to vote and that there is a "risk of fraud", so they warn that they will be "vigilant" to possible irregularities.
Thus, the things, critics (Between All) and 'villaristas' (Coidando to House) will face in elections that start this Saturday under a rarefied environment after three weeks of reproaches, threats and crossed accusations that have engulfed In Marea in a crisis total that leaves the instrumental party on the verge of breaking up.
In declarations to the Being, David Bruzos assured that the crisis of the instrumental party has "names and surnames": Luís Villares and his affines. Hours before, he affirmed in the microphones of Radio Galega that the magistrate from Lugo is "disqualified" to lead En Marea.
'Between All' expresses in a communiqué that they continue ahead in an electoral process that they see "marked by the violation of the agreements" of the plenary of October 27 and by "the boycott" of the coordinator to the electoral committee.
"We will vote to restore the cleanliness of the rules of the game and we will maintain a watchful attitude to banish the whole shadow of fraud." We have a clear, unequivocal commitment: to restore the truth and democracy of En Marea and to end the state of emergency imposed by the coordinator. ", highlights the candidacy of the critics.
ANOVA, PODEMOS AND ANOVA
For Anova, the primaries constitute a "plebiscite" on the management of Luís Villares, who in 2016 became a name of "consensus" to head the candidacy in the regional elections in which En Marea achieved 14 deputies, equaling in seats the PSdeG but surpassing the socialists in votes.
One of the leaders of the nationalist organization, the councilor from Santiago, Martiño Noriega, was the first to affirm that both he and the tide he leads –Compostela Aberta – would participate in the primaries after the resumption of the process was decreed last Wednesday.
However, Podemos, EU and Anova studied until Friday if they participated or opted to withdraw the 'Entre Todas' candidacy. The first to confirm that they were going ahead were the nationalists, who called the action of the current coordinator "irresponsible", accusing it of causing "irreparable damage" to the political space.
Hours later, the EU issued another statement in which they state that the organization headed by Eva Solla "continues to consider that the democratic conditions for voting are not met" after the implementation of a new system.
Before knowing the position of the critics, the spokesman of En Marea, Luís Villares, warned them that "it would be a pity" that the candidacy of David Bruzos be withdrawn and, with this step, "deny their own registered" the possibility of to be able to vote for the alternative model that they claim.
In statements to the media, in the corridors of the Chamber, En Marea spokesman said he faces this weekend of the primaries "with a lot of enthusiasm", since it will "complete" the process of renewal of internal organs. "The normal thing was to vote and, finally, with all the guarantees, we will be able to do it", he has sentenced.
This being the case, three weeks after the initially scheduled date, the En Marea primaries are resumed in a rarefied environment. Voting opens at 09.00 this Saturday and will be closed at the same time on Monday, Christmas Eve. That same day is expected to know the results.
On the one hand, Villares and the current leadership aspire to maintain control of the instrumental party. They will have opposite to Podemos, Anova, Esquerda Unida and the tides of Santiago, Ferrol and A Coruña, which blame the current direction of having sunk En Marea in a "state of exception".
The primaries, which were to be held between December 1 and 3, were suspended hours before they were initiated by the Guarantees Commission (controlled by affinities to the management) in the presence of alleged "irregularities."
However, the voting started as planned, although it was only for two hours, until the legal representative of the party before the Spanish Agency for Data Protection, Gonzalo Rodríguez, ordered his stoppage and denounced the existence of an "illegal" access to the census by the electoral committee, with a majority of critics.
Over the past three weeks, critics and government officials have come across blame, accusations of fraud and threats to go to court. With the passing of days, the tone of the confrontation has been rising, leaving the edge of the total rupture to an En Marea in which coexistence between both sectors seems impossible once this process of primary ends.
