The deputy trustee of Compromís in the Valencian Courts, Aitana Mas, will replace Mónica Oltra at the head of the vice presidency, the spokesperson for the Valencian Government and the Ministry of Equality and Inclusive Policies.
Sources of the coalition have confirmed this Wednesday the decision adopted by its four spokespersons, who have already transferred to the president of the Generalitat, Ximo Puig, who has the power to make the appointment official after the crisis opened by the resignation of Mónica Oltra, imputed for managing the sexual abuse of a minor under guardianship by her ex-husband Luis Ramírez Icardi, sentenced to five years in prison.
Aitana Mas, a 31-year-old from Alicante, was general director of Transparency during the previous legislature, between 2015 and 2019, and for three years she was deputy spokesperson for Compromís in the Valencian Parliament and one of those responsible for negotiating budgets by the coalition.
In fact, he was in the pools to replace Fran Ferri after his departure as mayor, although that position ultimately fell to Papi Robles.

The new number two of the tripartite Executive -PSPV, Compromís and United We Can- belongs to the Valencian Country Initiative, the party founded by Mónica Oltra. Aitana Mas assumes the powers in the matter of Inclusive Policies while the 15th Investigating Court of Valencia continues with the investigation to determine if the Ministry orchestrated a plan to hide some events that date back to 2017 and tried to discredit the minor .
The new councilor has closed ranks with her predecessor despite the accusation of Mónica Oltra in various messages spread through social networks.
Aitana Mas, who when she was just 21 years old became the youngest woman to lead an electoral list to Congress in Spain but did not win a seat, assumes the positions of the resigned Mónica Oltra but Compromís does not contemplate, for the moment, that she be her candidate in the next regional elections.
An official version suggests that they will wait for an eventual file of the case that affects the former vice president of the Generalitat so that she repeats as head of the poster. The plan B of the coalition goes through the deputy in Congress, Joan Baldoví, despite the fact that he himself has ruled out for the position.
