Patient, Alejandro Fernández (Tarragona, 1976) waited for his moment. More than 20 years after joining the PP, this Saturday, he was officially declared president of the party in Catalonia. And he did it as the only candidate and with the support of the state leader, Pablo Casado. In fact, the election of Married in July has flattened a path that Fernandez had so much wanted to do.
Councilor of the PP in the city council of Tarragona from 2003 to 2016, deputy to the Congress of Deputies of four years (2011-2015) and deputy to the parliament of Catalonia from 2015 and until now, even if the 21-D goes He left without placed at the beginning and recovered it after counting the vote by correspondence. Alejandro Fernández's political career in institutional politics is dilated, but it is also his way to the party. The current People's Deputy began his career in the PP of Catalonia as a member of New Generations (NNGG), from where he was the local, provincial and even of Catalonia. In this moment, in addition to taking the leadership of the party, he will also remain in the position of provincial president of Tarragona – even if he intends to leave him in the future.
His great affinity with Pablo Casado, with whom he participated in the Congress of Deputies, is not only personal, but also ideological. Alejandro Fernández has always been established as a conservative and lawless person. And this is what wants to feed the game. In fact, transfer the right turn that Casado did with the PP state in Catalonia. Fernandez is not tired of saying in recent weeks that he wants to achieve an "ideological rearmament" for the party that serves to defeat independence. The People's Deputy is in favor of not leaving room for maneuver to the independentist parties and is in favor, like Casado, to apply again 155.
His oratorical ability is the distinctive feature that has also been recognized by his political adversaries. Fernandez has spoken in phrases already known as the one that was left a few weeks ago by the president of the Generalitat, Quim Torra: "You and I are two pieces of Spanish jokes". Or what he said in the speech of October 27 last year at the time President of the Government, Carles Puigdemont, to give him his doubts with the DUI. "Is there anybody on the planet who is not a fan? In fact, you've been there for a few hours," he said, after examining the people who, according to Fernandez, are "fatigues" according to the independence party.
His oratorical ability that he was able to demonstrate in the House of Parliament allowed him a certain notoriety. A notoriety, however, that until recently was scarce, even within the party militancy. Now, the challenge that appears to him is capital: revive the part of the well where it is located and that its conservative discourse serves to stop independence.
