Podemos will have four heads of list (Granada, Cadiz, Cordoba and Huelva), IU will have three (Malaga, Almería and Jaén), and that of Seville is reserved for More Country., which practically guarantees him a position in the Andalusian chamber in the figure of Hope Gomez, co-spokesperson for the formation. In the parliamentary group, the spokesperson will be from IU and will have a deputy spokesperson and the group’s secretary.
The distribution of the questions to the president, the debates, or the presidencies of eventual commissions in the Chamber are also written in the document. IU would have the position in the Board of Directors of the RTVAas a senator and in the Accounts Chamber, while Podemos would stay with the Parliamentary Table, the Audiovisual Council and the Accounts Chamber.
