Ana González will not continue to be councilor of the Asturian city after having resigned from her party’s primaries
Once the first procedure of the General State Budgets (PGE) has been completed, the second vice president, Yolanda Díaz, will travel to Gijón this Wednesday to continue with the Sumar tour, her listening process. There, in addition to visiting the Academy of the Asturian Language and meeting with the workers of the Asturian productive sectors, he plans to have a coffee with the mayor of the city, the socialist Ana González, before holding a massive event in the afternoon (at 6:00 p.m.) on the indoor track of Cimavilla.
The meeting between Díaz and González has aroused all kinds of surprises. The current councilor will cease to be mayor of Gijón when the municipal elections are held in May of next year after having given up participating in the primaries against the party’s favorite Executive candidate. Two weeks ago she assured her that she did not intend to lose. «I have lost, the Executive has won. She did not want to lose, but that right now has no value because the important thing is to be aware and assume it in the only way it should be done, without rancor or duplicity, “she explained.
At that press conference, supported by seven like-minded councilors, she acknowledged that the situation “was not easy” and that the organization of the primaries “was a process to take me away.”
The second vice president already met with the mayor in July 2021, but at that time the appointment did not have political overtones, and the reason for the visit was her participation in a talk at the Black Week in Gijón. On this occasion, however, the meeting takes place two weeks after Sumar announced the list of its first hard core, made up of 35 coordinators from civil society.
Precisely during her trip to Bilbao, on September 9, the vice president was photographed having a coffee with the Basque writer Bernando Atxaga, also before another Sumar event with an audience and just a month before Atxaga signed on as coordinator of the Diaz platform culture.
