Carolina Darias will announce her candidacy for mayor of Las Palmas on Saturday

The Minister of Health, Carolina Darias, plans to announce this Saturday that she will present her candidacy for the PSOE primaries to aspire to the mayoralty of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in the elections next May, sources from her environment have advanced to EFE this Thursday .

Darias, who was born in Las Palmas in 1965, will make the announcement at a public event that will take place on Saturday at the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium in the capital of Gran Canaria, where he was already a councilor between 1999 and 2004.

The Minister of Finance and Deputy Secretary General of the PSOE, María Jesús Montero, is scheduled to attend the event on Saturday in Las Palmas.

She has been Minister of Health since January 2021 and was previously Minister of Territorial Policy, President of the Parliament of the Canary Islands, Minister of Economy of the Government of the Canary Islands and Government delegate in the Canary Islands, among other public positions.

The mayor of Las Palmas, Augusto Hidalgo, also a socialist and who has been in charge of the town hall since 2015, will opt in 2023 to preside over the Cabildo Insular de Gran Canaria.

The President of the Government of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, said this Thursday in an interview with EFE that he would like to see Darias as mayor of Las Palmas "or any colleague who is present in the PSOE primaries, because it is a fundamental square". .

"The decision will be made by her and we will know it in days", Torres pointed out, in addition to wishing "that the good work that has been done in the Las Palmas de Gran Canaria City Council, also with stability, with a background of eight years, can be completed with another mayor's office defended by the PSOE".

Another minister, that of Industry, Reyes Maroto, announced last Monday that she will run for the Socialist primaries to be mayor of the PSOE in Madrid.
