ALDE Leader Welcomes Regional Government Formation in Spain’s Andalusia

BRUSSELS – The leader of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe in the European Parliament on Thursday hailed one of his allied Spanish parties’ ascent into local government in the southern region of Andalusia, which required a deal with another center-right party and a far-right outfit the prominent politician has criticized in the past.

ALDE head Guy Verhofstadt congratulated Ciudadanos, a member of the liberal group, which recently struck a deal with the Popular Party to govern in coalition with the support in the chamber of hard-right newcomer Vox.

“Happy to see Ciudadanos in the Andalusian government with a centrist and reformist program and without concession or deals with Vox,” he wrote on Twitter.

Verhofstadt had already taken to the social media platform to criticize Vox on Dec. 3, a day after regional elections in Andalusia in which the far-right outfit took 12 seats.

The PP took 26 parliamentary seats, while Ciudadanos took 11 and the leftist Adelante Andalucia took 17.

It ended a 36-year uninterrupted rule by the center-left Socialist Party in the region.
