The Partido Popular (PP) has broken their coalition pact with the Ciudadanos, but Mayor Luis Salvador insists, “There will be a government and it will work”. Salvador has been mayor of Granada since 2019.

The PP accuses Luis Salvador, the head of the Ciudadanos, of “entrenching himself” in office, while Salvador refuses to resign and indicates he will seek a coalition partner elsewhere and that he is willing to speak “of future scenarios with everyone.”

The president of the PP in the Andalucian city, Francisco Rodriguez, said today, June 8, that the party’s seven councillors are going to renounce their powers and exit the coalition with Ciudadanos.

The PP said Salvador’s refusal to alternate who holds the position of mayor is their reason for breaking the pact. Salvador has been mayor of Granada since 2019.

Rodriguez said, “A city like Granada cannot be governed from solitude.”

“He has made it very clear to us that he is not leaving, that he doesn’t want to. He has to realize that he can’t stay in office. There are only two options: entrench himself as he is doing now or call a full inauguration,” he added.

Mayor Salvador maintains he has no intention of resigning.

“There will be a government and it will work,” he said while claiming the PP are “avoiding all its responsibilities”.
