The mayor of Derio will thus take over from Gorka Urtaran in the general assembly on the 19th. The vice presidents will be Nagore Alkorta, first mayor of Azpeitia, and José Antonio Santano, councilor of Irún.
The mayor of Derio, Esther Apraiz, will be the new president of EUDEL and will thus take over from Gorka Urtaran at the general assembly on the 19th, as EITB has learned. Precisely, today the deadline for submitting candidatures to preside over the Association of Basque Municipalities ended, and EH Bildu had given up presenting a candidacy. Esther Apraiz Fernández de la Peña (Derio, 1976) has been mayor of Derio since 2015. Previously, she was councilor in the Urban Planning area between 2011 and 2015.
According to the agreement reached, the nationalist mayor of Derio, Esther Apraiz, will be elected president of the Association of Basque Municipalities at the assembly next Tuesday. The candidacy led by Apraiz is the result of an agreement reached yesterday Monday by EAJ-PNV, EH Bildu and PSE-EE and to which independent groups have joined.
The mayor of Azpeitia, Nagore Alkorta (EH Bildu), and the councilor of Irún, José Antonio Santano (PSE-EE), will accompany Apraiz as vice presidents of the entity, positions they already hold currently.
The rest of the candidacy includes the municipal mayors and mayoresses Nati López de Muniain (Elburgo), Maialen Gurrutxaga (Elgoibar), Jon Luqui Albisu (Urretxu), Erlantz Urresti (Maruri Jatabe) and Txerra Molinuevo (Amurrio); by EH Bildu, together with the aforementioned Nagore Alkorta (Azpeitia), Iñigo Hernando (Galdakao), Txelo Auzmendi (Asparrena), Xabier Lertxundi (Hernani), Eneritz Azpitarte (Zaldibar) and Izaro Elorza (Oñati); representing the Basque Socialists, together with José Antonio Santano (Irún), Mikel Torres (Portugalete) will be on the executive; and the councilor of the independent group ‘Zalla Bai’ Joseba Andoni Zorrilla Ruiz closes the proposal.
The 245 EUDEL partner municipalities will proceed on Tuesday to renew their governing bodies, both the Executive Commission (fifteen representatives) and the Territorial Commissions of Álava, Bizkaia and Gipuzkoa (nine representatives each).
