Moreno confirms that he will call elections in Andalusia “before summer”: “The legislature is over”

The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juan Manuel Moreno (PP), has confirmed this Sunday that he will call elections “before summer”, alleging for this the need for the community to have a budget for 2022 and 2023. “It is clear that the legislature is over”, Moreno has sentenced to questions from the media during his attendance at the procession of the Virgen de la Cabeza in Andújar (Jaén).

“Andalusia needs a budget and it needs it for 2022 and 2023. That leads us inevitably to call the elections before the summer”, the president asserted. After this, he has assured that, after “thinking and reflecting”, the legislature “has finished” and that “what it touches is to make a decision that is good for Andalusia”.

Once this open secret has been revealed, it remains to be revealed on what date the elections will be held. Although Moreno himself raised the possibility that they would be on a Friday or a Saturday, everything indicates that they will be on a Sunday, and taking into account that 54 days must elapse between the call and the holding of the elections, there are two dates available for them to be before the start of the holiday period in July and August: on Sundays June 19 and 26.

For it to be June 19, the summons decree would have to be published this same Tuesday, April 26, which would in turn entail the dissolution of Parliament and the cancellation of the plenary session scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday (27 and 28), in which the approval of two measures of important political significance is planned: on the one hand, the Circular Economy Law (to which the PP and Moreno himself have attached great importance); on the other, the final opinion of the Faffe investigation commission, the public foundation from which funds were diverted for payments in brothels and whose conclusions point to former socialist presidents Manuel Chaves and José Antonio Griñán as “politically responsible”, while Susana Díaz blames “lack of collaboration” with the judicial investigation.

With these elements on the table, the way seems clear for the chosen date to be Sunday, June 26, which would imply convening the next May 3. In any case, the exact date is the last letter kept by the president, who will finish stripping the daisy in the next few hours.
