The parties start negotiations to decide who will become Sitges Mayor

Following the local elections that took place on Sunday 28 May, the negotiating teams for the main political parties in Sitges have been working to get a majority of at least 11 councillors. 

Since the votes were counted, there are multiple scenarios. The victory of Junts per Sitges, with a three-way tie of 4 councillors each with the Esquerra Republicana (ERC) party and the Catalan Socialists (PSC), has been the starting point of the first week of contacts between parties to form a local government. On the horizon is the deadline of Saturday 17 June, when the Investiture Plenary will take place that will kick off the new legislature.

The goal of the negotiating teams, therefore, is to obtain a majority of at least 11 councillors to ensure the election of the Mayor in the first round, without this necessarily implying that the executive has an absolute majority. This already happened four years ago with the Comuns party, who voted in favour of Aurora Carbonell but declined the offer to join her local government team.

In the event that no candidate obtains these 11 endorsements in the first vote, the Mayoress would automatically be Mònica Gallardo for having been the head of the list with the most votes on 28 May.
