Last Sunday, the local PSOE executive in Bigastro held a meeting during which Raúl Valerio Medina officially launched his candidacy ahead of the May election. However, Aniorte Fidel, another of the Bigastro socialist councillors, also came forward as an alternative candidate for the leadership of the party.
The supporters of Raúl Valerio Medina were apparently not best pleased about this announcement. The executive went on to discuss the various scandals that Medina was involved in for which some believe there has not been sufficient explanation given. Although Fidel Aniorte does not believe that Medina is guilty of misappropriation of funds, he thinks that the party needs a new start if they are to enjoy any success at the forthcoming election.
We will know within a few days which one of the two the socialists have chosen to lead them.
