Daniel Sirera meets with Xavier Trias and Jaume Collboni in full swing for the Barcelona mayor’s office

Who will raise the rod of mayor’s office Barcelona next June 17 is still unknown. Three days after knowing the results, and with the final count still pending, the meetings, calls and cross messages between the majority of candidates for the Catalan capital city council continue. They are taken for granted between Junts and ERC and also between the PSC, ERC and Comuns. But given the difficulty of reaching agreements between these spaces, especially given the refusal of the Republicans to facilitate the mayoralty of Jaume Collboni, the four councilors of the PP gain relevance. So much so that, as EL PERIÓDICO has learned, the popular Daniel Sirera It has already been seen with the two aspirants to lead the city: Xavier Trias and Jaume Collboni.

The meeting with the socialist candidate was this Tuesday, according to sources familiar with the negotiations, and this Wednesday he did it with Trias. At the moment, the popular ones assure that they have limited themselves to “listening”, but they remember that they will not give their votes for free and that any agreement has to go through their program. For the moment, Sirera allows herself to be loved by both of them and does not close any door, although the collboni operation It would be very complicated and even more with the advance of the general elections. In fact, the mayor of the popular ones already warned this Monday that he saw “very difficult, if not impossible” for his party to enter into an equation that included the Comuns. If ERC does not agree to agree, the socialist could only be mayor with the votes of Ada Colau and Daniel Sirera.

For now, the Republicans have publicly ruled out the possibility of reaching an agreement with the PSC and have chosen to look towards the pro-independence caucus. The ‘president’ of the Generalitat did it first, Pere Aragonesencouraging a independence withdrawal and he finished it off oriol junqueras, who this Wednesday has verbalized that “it is better” a mayor like Trias. But there is no republican unanimity and the PSC aspires to fish in those troubled waters. At the moment, the former deputy of ERC Joan Tarda has once again been the most dissenting voice on the negotiation stage, betting on giving the mayoralty to Ada Colau, despite having finished third. A difficult option, at this point, because she would need the contribution of the PSC. Unless Friday’s count turn in favor of the Comuns and place them in second position, since they were left with 141 votes on election night.
