Just noticed today in the press that the former mayor envisages a possible alternative to Ada Colau, through a “saint alliance” of basically all the other parties.

What is interesting in this is that the single point of substance mentioned by the mayor (“what most worries me”) is precisely the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. He says that many cities “would fight for such an event and that we need to handle it with care”.

UPDATE: on may 29th, Colau validated the offer from the previous alcalde for the MWC. Apparently her party “has always been in favour of MWC”. However, in her first press conference, she said she was in favour “but that its benefits should spread all over the city, the jobs should not be temporary, and all the social benefits of the the apps should be exploited”. A bit of bipartisanship and diplomacy emerging here.
