The PP incorporates the former general secretary of Ciudadanos Adrián Vázquez in its list for the European elections

The 'popular' have also signed two Cs MEPs for their candidacy: Susana Solís and Eva Poptcheva

MADRID, 1 May. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The former general secretary of Ciudadanos Adrián Vázquez confirmed this Wednesday that he will run in the next European elections on June 9 on the Popular Party list, which will also include two other orange MEPs Susana Solís and Eva Poptcheva.

According to the newspaper 'El Mundo', Vázquez and Solís will be in starting positions, accompanying Dolors Montserrat in the top 20 places on the list, while Poptcheva will appear in the next section of the candidacy.

"At a critical moment in our democracy we must be on the side of defending the rule of law and the founding values ​​of the Union," Vázquez wrote in a message on the social network 'X', collected by Europa Press.

Adrián, who resigned from the General Secretariat of Ciudadanos last March, justifies his jump to the PP with the argument that the formation led by Alberto Núñez Feijóo at "this moment is the only political alternative" capable of "reconstructing" the " civic and constitutional coexistence".

"I proudly announce that I will attend the European Parliament on your lists to contribute to that objective," continues Vázquez's message, who also takes the opportunity to thank Feijóo for the trust placed in him and "recognition" of his work in recent years.

It was on March 22 when Vázquez resigned from his position as general secretary of Ciudadanos, in which he remained for just over a year. The decision was made after the failure of the negotiations that the orange party had opened with the PP to participate together in the Catalan and European elections.

Then Vázquez assured that he could not commit to a cause in which he no longer believed and nor "be an obstacle." He was a supporter of that electoral alliance with the 'popular', which was opposed by another sector of the party, especially its head in Catalonia, Carlos Carrizosa, Ciudadanos' candidate for the Catalan elections on May 12.

Vázquez assumed the General Secretariat of Ciudadanos in January 2023, after the refoundation process launched after the 2022 Andalusian elections to try to overcome successive electoral debacles.

He won the primaries forming a duo with Patricia Guasp, who assumed the political spokesperson for the party. That internal process opened wounds within the party, which split in two when Edmundo Bal proposed an alternative candidacy to that of Vázquez and Guasp, supported by the party apparatus.

Trained in international relations, Vázquez (Madrid, 1982) served as an advisor to Ciudadanos in the European Parliament before becoming an MEP.
