Bilbao (EFE) win in votes
At a rally in Bilbao, where he occupies the last position in the mayoralty candidacy, Díaz Ayuso has attacked EH Bildu again for including ETA convicts on his lists, but also against the PNV.
He has affirmed that the Basque Nationalist Party does not want independence “because it has a profitable business”, but “it has become bourgeois and has not been able to stop” EH Bildu.
“Bildu will now be the one to collect the ‘nuts’ of the PNV”, he remarked in reference to a repeated phrase by the former president of the PNV Xabier Arzalluz, who, referring to ETA, said “some shake the tree and others collect the nuts”.
On the inclusion of ETA convicts in Bildu’s candidacies, Diaz Ayuso stated that “it is necessary” for the Supreme Court, and the “highest legislative and judicial powers” of the Basque Country, Spain and the European Union “to rule on this”. “If we don’t, we may regret it soon.”
