Ayuso and García Egea, so far and so close in the Valencian night

It is no secret that the prominence and the bubble of media attention on the president of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, in the day of Saturday of the national convention of the PP in Valencia they did not like in Genoa.

Pablo Casado’s team is somewhat saturated with questions about any gesture by the conservative leader and wants to maintain its calendar of regional and provincial organic congresses apart from Ayuso’s rush to take the presidency of the PP in Madrid. This square implies much more than the organic showcase. It involves having the red button and influence in the configuration of electoral lists in the municipalities of the autonomy, including that of the capital, beyond the head of the list, which corresponds to the national leadership. It therefore grants an important power over the party in Madrid, and it is already known that Madrid is Spain. Or at least that’s what Ayuso thinks.

The PP has had stages of concentration or institutional and organic bicephaly. Among other things, because as a single-province community in Madrid two references of power converge: the presidency of the community and the mayor’s office of the capital.

Precisely Ayuso and the mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez-Almeida, shared a table on Saturday night in one of the rooms of the Hotel Astoria in Valencia, seated on both sides of Pío García Escudero, president of the Madrid manager and senator.

It was a dinner with a hundred cadres of the party spread over round tables. They were also present the general secretary of the PP of Madrid, Ana Camíns; the spokespersons of the Popular Group in Congress and the Senate, Cuca gamarra and Javier Maroto; as well as the vice secretaries of training, Ana Pastor, Elvira Rodríguez, Pablo Montesinos and Antonio González Terol, among others.

The coincidence wanted that in another smaller room on the same floor, in a private room with a balcony overlooking the penthouses of the historic center of the capital of Turia, the secretary general of the PP, Teodoro García Egea, the regional president, Carlos Mazon, and the Valencian mayor María José Catalá enjoy another evening of talks and laughter with a group of Valencians, spread over three tables of those in which attendees jump from one to another.

The thing got so funny that even Almeida signed up for coffee and a drink in the Valencian room until after midnight. Also Germán Alcayde, who was head of the office of Jose Maria Aznar, a personal friend of Casado and now a counselor at HVR Energy and president of Atlantic Business Consulting. The one who did not come near was Ayuso. So far and so close to García Egea.
