Casado’s strategy fails to stop the internal rebellion of a part of the PP | Spain

The PP national convention in early October was designed to reinforce Pablo Casado’s leadership. The autonomous congress of the PP of Castilla-La Mancha on November 13 and 14 sought to project Paco Núñez as the new leader against the socialist Emiliano García Page. And the congress of the PP of Andalusia this past weekend was planned as a launching pad for Juan Manuel Moreno Bonilla before the nearby Andalusian electoral scene. All these acts have been overshadowed by the dispute between the national leadership and the Madrid president, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, for control of the PP in Madrid. Pablo Casado’s strategy in the face of the crisis has not eased tensions. Three months of internal conflict are about to be completed and the leader’s calls for a cessation of hostilities fall on deaf ears. The national leadership, however, maintains its roadmap and uses polls to defend that it is on the right track.

On Sunday, Pablo Casado in Granada urged Ayuso and the former parliamentary speaker Cayetana Álvarez de Toledo to reduce their prominence and criticism: “There is no room for soloists here,” he warned. Just 24 hours later, the two politicians once again defended their critical positions with the national leadership in interviews on radio and television. With a different tone – Ayuso without giving up his position – they again grabbed the headlines and overshadowed the opposition work of the PP leader.

The Madrid president claimed that “being critical does not mean being unfair” and again asked that the PP congress in Madrid be held “as soon as possible”, informs Juan José Mateo. The Madrilenian leader assumed on TVE that prolonging the Madrid congress for eight more months “wears down, erodes, creates more internal war and more misunderstandings.” Cayetana Álvarez de Toledo responded directly to Casado in RNE. “He is calling personality personalism, and leadership divism.”

The internal conflict does not stop, and Casado suffers to post his opposition messages. On Monday he wanted to influence the Government’s pact with Bildu for Budgets – “Pairing with them is like losing the democratic soul,” he said in Vitoria – but the leading role went to Ayuso and Álvarez de Toledo. This week, the leadership will raise the decibels in its opposition to the Government and will try to achieve focus by shaking the street. Casado will demonstrate on Saturday together with the unions and police associations against the reform announced by the Government of the so-called gag law of the PP, and on Wednesday members of the leadership will attend the protests in the countryside in front of the Ministry of Agriculture.

Despite the fact that the crisis puts obstacles in his career to try to reach La Moncloa, sources from the national leadership insist that Casado is not going to move. That is, it will not advance the PP congress in Madrid or give the support of the management to Ayuso to preside over it. The leader of the PP “has it very clear,” these sources emphasize. “We, to focus on what is important.” “Three or four voices are entangling, but the party has a course. The polls say that Sánchez’s days are numbered ”, they emphasize in Genoa. The strategy with respect to Álvarez de Toledo is to pressure her to leave the party, through public and private messages, such as in the chat of the popular parliamentary group, where several deputies have made her know their anger.

Genoa wields the leadership of the PP in the polls – this Monday a Sigma Two was published that estimates 130 seats for the PP, for 101 for the PSOE – but the polls also begin to show signs of wear and tear. Metroscopia highlights in its November report that after the victory of the PP in Madrid in May “the loyalty of Pablo Casado’s party experienced significant growth, an effect that seems to be dissipating at present.” And according to the Gad3 series, although the PP is still in the lead, the momentum of the 4-M has slowed. The current data granted by this house of surveys to the PP (124-128 seats) are below those of June (136-138).
