Yolanda Díaz reserves for the generals and refuses to launch her project in Castilla y León and Andalusia | Politics

The regional elections of Castilla y León on February 13 will be the first electoral appointment that Unidos Podemos faces after the departure of Pablo Iglesias. However, the new leader of the confederal space, the second vice president Yolanda Díaz, will not take advantage of this appointment, nor will the Andalusians planned for the coming months, to launch her new “country project”, which has a state vocation and whose preparations have barely been ripped off.

The vice president “will help in whatever is necessary” in both elections, sources from her environment assure, but she is not going to rush her plans or alter her roadmap, and even less now that the head of Labor is focused on negotiating the reform work with the social agents, to have it ready before the end of the year. Once it is approved, the leader of Unidas Podemos will begin at the beginning of the year with the so-called “listening process” to put together its future project, with an eye on the generals of the end of 2023, and not before.

The sources consulted also emphasize that Díaz does not currently have any organic position that legitimizes her to supervise and direct the negotiations to establish confluences with other forces in Castilla y León and Andalusia; Negotiations that, in addition, the vice president understands that they must arise from the territories, and not be piloted from Madrid.

In this way, Díaz and his people cool down the expectations of Podemos about their involvement in the autonomic processes, after the leader of the purple party in Castilla y León, Pablo Fernández, even went so far as to affirm this Monday, after knowing the electoral advance, that this appointment will be “the first step of that broad front led by Yolanda Díaz.” The one who will foreseeably be Podemos’s candidate for the Junta later acknowledged, however, that he had not yet spoken with the leader of United Podemos.

Top rated policy

Neither Castilla y León nor Andalusia are two easy scenarios for the left at the moment and, especially, for Podemos. Hence the attempts of the purple to try to make the most of the figure of Díaz, who in the December barometer of the Center for Sociological Research (CIS) has once again been confirmed as the best valued policy, above President Pedro Sánchez.

In the specific case of the first electoral appointment of the cycle that opens in 2022, that of Castilla y León, Unidas Podemos has the challenge of resurfacing, after having been on the verge of being left out in the last elections of 2019, in which Podemos and IU failed to close an agreement and concurred separately. The confluence between the two formations is taken for granted for the February appointment but, yes, it will not be under the umbrella of the new project that the vice president will promote in the future.

Fragmentation of the Andalusian left

And in the Andalusian scenario, the main difficulty lies in the fragmentation of the left to the left of the PSOE: In addition to United We Can, the party of Íñigo Errejón, More Country, along with other forces, has already confirmed their intention to go to the polls. in the ‘Andalusians rise up’ coalition; and the anti-capitalists of Teresa Rodríguez. The talks between these three forces have already begun and, for the moment, at least in the case of Rodríguez, they have no signs of prospering.

In any case, regardless of the level of involvement of the vice president, the February 13 elections will be the first for the ‘new’ Unidos Podemos after the departure of former purple leader Pablo Iglesias, and after he appointed Yolanda Díaz as his successor in the leadership of the confederal space.
