Logroño, (EFE).- The deputy secretary of Territorial Organization of the PP, Miguel Tellado, said this Wednesday that he sees the popular candidate Gonzalo Capellán as president of La Rioja, starting next May, for “his own merits”, but also see the winning match in the Rioja capital, Logroño.
In this sense, he has spoken in an informative conference, together with the president of the party, Alberto Galiana, within a working day with the campaign committee of the PP in this community and the Executive Committee, with an eye on the next elections May 28.
Tellado has highlighted that, in addition to the results of the latest surveys, which give a majority of the Government to the PP in this community, Capellán is a person who endorses “an academic background, experience, dedicated to serving and being useful to this land, with an overturned team ».
Chaplain will be the future president of La Rioja “by his own merits and by demerits” of a Government, chaired by the socialist, Concha Andreu, who is the only one, he has said, who has not approved any reduction in personal income tax to alleviate the effects of inflation, he said.
With this government, he added, the Rioja population “has only seen poverty, inflation and more debt”, which last year rose, he said, to 112 million euros.
Meanwhile, the Government has the educational community “entry in arms” and with “rising” health waiting lists, he stressed.
The PP must focus and not be distracted
Before the judicial order of Salamanca, which orders the party in this province to convene and hold its congress, he has assured that the PP “accepts any sentence”, but must “focus” on this year’s elections and “not be distracted.”
The situation of the PP in La Rioja -also pending the holding of a congress- is different because “there is no lawsuit filed in this regard, nor, therefore, a court ruling, so there is no parallelism” between the situation of the party in both provinces, he said.
Tellado has stressed that the PP has an electoral appointment on May 28 and the entire party is focused on winning those elections, “as well as the general ones, which will also be held this year.
Therefore, “the PP should not be distracted by different issues at this time, thinking about the electoral interest, but thinking about the role that the party assumes and its responsibility” to govern and to offer the La Rioja population “a real alternative to the misgovernment led by its president, the socialist Concha Andreu».
He has assured that the PP of La Rioja “has done things well” to govern La Rioja and Logroño, as currently indicated by the polls. EFE.
