The members of the Board of Directors of Ciudadanos Talavera resigned en bloc last January because they did not agree with the lines and guidelines that the party was taking. At that time, the former coordinator of the Board of Directors of the orange party in the city, Beatriz Illescas, stated that they did not agree with the course of the party due to the lack of organization.
Beatriz Illescas then announced that she was already working, together with the people who resigned, to launch another project that she did not give more information about. However, as Toledodiario.es has learned, this new formation is already registered, it bears the name of Here Now, it has its headquarters in Toledo and Beatriz Illescas appears as its president.
The Cs crisis in Talavera comes from afar. in March 2019, More than half of the local Board of Directors have already resigned for the candidacy of Juan Carlos Girauta to the Congress of Deputies, as well as Susana Hernández -former councilor of the PP until 2017- for the Mayor’s Office of Talavera. After the municipal elections of that year, in September, Susana Hernández became a non-attached councilor after she was relegated as spokesperson for the municipal Citizens group.
Last June the councilor of the orange formation Miguel Ruíz left the party, which caused the Municipal Group of the Talavera City Council to disappear, as it did not meet the required quota, a minimum of two people. Now this new party arises from the former members of Cs, facing the regional and municipal elections scheduled for the spring of next year.
