Joan Baldoví He has danced today alone with his faithful in the Compromís act in Alicante. Neither initiative, the party of the three-accused Mónica Oltra, who He had announced just hours before that he would not come for «do not share organizational forms», nor Los Verdes, who according to Compromís sources consulted during that same act have not provided representation either, have accompanied him.
Today’s act was the one designated for the acclamation of Joan Baldoví as sole candidate for the Generalitat and number 1 and to write off Oltra. But the pupils of the latter and the party from which she comes have turned their backs on her. And they have allowed the visualization of the deep internal division that exists and is already public and notorious.
The conflict is serious, because it affects the foundations of the coalition, supported by 3 parties: Initiative, Month and Greens. The 2 majority are Initiative and Month. The first is Oltra’s. The second, that of Baldoví. A change of leader, therefore, affects the internal balance of the coalition.. Therefore, the internal struggle also has a key to the struggle between 2 parties, which threatens to crack it.
Oltra is currently charged with the alleged crimes of prevarication, abandonment of minors and omission of the duty to prosecute crime in the case that investigates whether charges and / or staff of the Ministry of Equality and Inclusive Policies that the former Valencian vice president was supposed to have hidden the complaints of the minor abused by the then husband of Oltra herself.
But the aspiration of Initiative, if Oltra is not disqualified before, is that she be his successor, Aitana Morecurrent Vice President of the Valencian Government, who replaces her. This option went to waste on Thursday with the announcement of Joan Baldoví to stand for the Coalition Primaries (February 11) to lead the lists. And opt, thus, for the presidency of the Autonomy.
This gesture by Baldoví supposes, de facto, give for amortized to Oltra. And everything, as a whole, is what she has seen as a deep affront in Initiative, to which after several threats they have responded today, with her absence in Alicante. Each day that passes, Initiative and Oltra’s pupils increase the degree of their response to Baldoví’s announcement.
And although both Baldoví and other officials have called for dialogue, they have also shown, as happened at the end, that they can dance without Oltra, unlike another previous act, that of June 18 in Valencia. Then, they danced to the rhythm of Oltra. Today, without her, they have followed Baldoví’s.
absences and presences
A sample of the critical situation of Compromís today: of the 4 directors it has in the Valencian Government, 2 have attended the Alicante event: Raquel Tamarit and Rafael Climent. Oltra’s successor in the Valencian Government Aitana Mas, who was announced as the head of the bill alongside Baldoví, and Mireia Mollà they haven’t gone
Yes, the president of the Valencian Parliament has attended the event Enrique Morera and the trustee spokesperson in that parliament daddy oaksas well as the spokesperson for the coalition in the Diputación de Alicante Gerard Fullana. Also, he has been the municipal spokesman and engine of Compromís in Alicante Nacho Bellidoone of the speakers, and the coordinator of Mes, the party from which Baldoví comes within Compromís, Agueda Micóanother speaker.
According to the sources consulted by OKDIARIO, there has also been no representation from Los Verdes. Deputy John Ponce who, like Aitana Mas, was announced in the list of speakers, has also fallen off the bill. Despite everything, both Baldoví and Rafael Climent, Gerard Fullana and Natxo Bellido have called for internal dialogue.
Baldoví and the goal
Joan Baldoví, in statements to OKDIARIO, has minimized the deep internal crisis. He has said that “small differences are normal within a coalition, legitimate.” And that he accepts them “with fair play.” He then calls for internal dialogue: «What we have to do is, starting tomorrow, dialogue. I am completely sure that in the next act Aitana and I will be up there».
He has also announced that these meetings will begin on Monday: “If we are characterized by something in commitment it is that we can raise the tension a lot upwards, but, in the end, always, we end up reaching an agreement». «There are things -he added- that may be differences, but the goal is common. And besides, it’s the most important thing.”
However, he has also made it clear that he is already a candidate and that, in any case, if Oltra left this defendant long enough to be part of the lists, both would form a tandem: «There is the clause in the Primaries and, then , we would get together and decide what is best for the project. I’m sure that Monica and I would make a magnificent tandem».
The Compromís Executive is held on Tuesday. The idea of the coalition is that an internal unity agreement emerges from there that, for the time being, and given the situation, is a long way from happening. The next few hours will be hectic.
