The PSOE and Más Madrid try to paralyze the advance of Ayuso with motions of censure.
It is not yet clear if they can be discussed, leaving the advance without effect, or on the contrary, they will decline, as the electoral advance prevails.
The opposition has reacted quickly this Wednesday to the electoral advance of Isabel Díaz Ayuso, a complete blow to the political scene in Madrid. In an attempt to paralyze the advance, Más Madrid has announced that they had registered a motion of censure, with deputy Mónica García as the candidate. A few minutes later, the PSOE has done the same, this time with Ángel Gabilondo as a candidate.
None of these initiatives has previously been negotiated between opposition groups. Nor with Citizens.
And it is not even clear yet whether they can be discussed, leaving the advance without effect, or on the contrary, they will decline, as the electoral advance prevails.
There will be a legal fight. The law regulating the faculty of dissolution of the Madrid Assembly states in its article 2: “The dissolution Decree will be published in the Official Gazette of the Community of Madrid and will enter into force at the time of its publication.”
The PSOE and Más Madrid interpret that Ayuso’s advance would not enter into force, therefore, until tomorrow, Thursday, so the motions of censure would have priority and should be discussed, canceling the advance. The PP is opposed.
In any case, before the conflict reaches the courts, it will be the Madrid Assembly Table that must make a decision. And here Cs, a party to which the elections are not suitable at a time when it is in frank decline, could add its votes to those of the left groups to stop the advance.
