Vox has already begun to make its lists in the different municipalities of the Community of Madrid and some names have already been confirmed to continue one more legislature representing the Abascal formation. OKDIARIO has been able to find out some of these names that will repeat in their respective municipalities for the next elections in May 2023. In this sense, the councilors who have been confirmed are the following:
Alcala de Henares – Javier Moreno de Miguel
Alcorcon – Pedro Moreno Gomez
Alcobendas – Fernando Jose Montenegro Alvarez de Tejada
Arganda del Rey – Francisco de Paula Serrano Caballero
Collado Villalba – Ana Isabel Dompablo Guerrero
The Molar – Fernando Hernandez Velasco
Galapagar – Ignacio Menéndez Medrano
Leganes – Beatriz Tejero
Speak – Juan Marcos
Pedrezuela – David Lopez Cerro
Pozuelo de Alarcon – Ignacio Fernandez
San Fernando de Henares – Jesus Fernandez Serrano
Saint Sebastian of the Kings – Alejandro Caro Manzanero
Valdemoro – Ines Maria Martin Rodrigo
But what methodology does Vox use to prepare its candidacies? In the first place, the CEP (Provincial Executive Committee chaired by Rocío Monasterio) confirms the councilors who will head the list and informs the party’s general secretary, Javier Ortega Smith. Likewise, those of Abascal usually carry out personal interviews before reaffirming some candidates. “They pay a lot of attention to the first 5 candidates, we all have to fill out an ethical and conduct form, in addition to reporting on the goods and properties that each one has,” Vox Madrid sources have revealed.
Once these internal procedures have been completed, the party sends the lists with the municipal candidates to the Provincial Electoral Board correspondent. This happens before the eleventh day after the elections are called.
As for the rest of candidates, the president of Vox, Santiago Abascal, already announced in an interview with esRadio that these will be announced before December so that the people “know them well” and so that they can discuss in the media before the elections. This did not happen in 2019, when the party lacked a solid structure at the organizational level and whose candidates for municipalities and heads of province went unnoticed.
