Edmundo Bal, the deputy spokesman for Citizens in Congress has stated this Thursday that the alternative formation in Andalusia to the 'orange-colored' formation is "the corruption, the mess and the anger of Vox and PP", ahead of the June 19 elections in Autonomous Community.
Bal spoke at the New Economy Forum and contrasted the "alternatives" to the election with Ciudadanos. He said Ciudadanos represents progress, the future and management, and that Juan Marin, vice president of Junta de Andalucia, is the 'orange candidate'.
He also served as deputy secretary general for Ciudadanos and used his speech to praise Marin. He has given Marin affectionate adjectives, and he assured Marin that he "has performed miracles in his management of the Andalusian government." He said, "Transparency and regeneration, economic advancement, modernization, he's carried out reforms in land that was standing still for a long while."
He has said that Andalusia has "freed itself from a Biblical curse", in which Andalusians are "on small payments and subsidized". He has also praised the fact that Ciudadanos is part of the Andalusian government and "has shattered insulting myths about Catalan nationalism", the one that "lives sub-subsidized" at the expense "productive Andalusia".
He insisted that "we have demolished myths and scams", pointing out the "victimism" of those who "have asked for more and greater assignments for 40 years" (PP/PSOE), alluding towards the nationalist parties.
Bal also spoke out about corruption, stating that "when Ciudadanos entered the door of San Telmo the corruption vanished." He said, "The gangsters and the beach bars, as well as the extravagant spending of public money, are gone," before noting that the money was used for what it needed to be. He has been sentenced to "Marin" and said that he had dismantled patronage networks that were created by the PSOE for 37 years.
