At current political context of Euskadi, we are witnessing key strategic moves by the main parties on the eve of an imminent election. Arnaldo Otegi, general coordinator of EH Bildu, has expressed its interest in forming a government pact with the GNP, focusing on promoting nationalism and sovereignty. This bold and strategic proposal seeks to revitalize a movement that, according to otegi, is currently at a point of stagnation.

Look at Gorrotxategi, Podemos candidate for Lehendakari, for its part, has shown its willingness to resign his candidacy in favor of an agreement with Sumar. This gesture of openness towards the coalition is significant, especially considering the recent electoral results in Galicia, where the lack of unity between Sumar and Podemos resulted in zero parliamentary representation for both.

The search for a great sovereignty pact in Euskadi

El Otegi approach on the possibility of a great sovereignty pact represents a crucial moment in Basque politics. With an estimated 70% of votes directed towards nationalist and sovereigntist options, there is a clear signal from the Basque people towards a specific political direction. otegi emphasizes the need for this popular mandate to be reflected in public policies, the proposal to join forces with the GNP and other left-wing entities seeks not only to strengthen nationalism, but also to promote progressive and Basque nationalist policies.

This approach between EH Bildu and PNV, with the inclusion of other political forces, proposes a collaboration scenario that could have a significant impact on the Basque political landscape. The ability to form a united front that reflects leftist and sovereign aspirations would be a milestone in Euskadi politics.

The imminent call for elections and their political impact

Meanwhile, expectations are growing around the date of calling elections by the Lehendakari, Iñigo Urkullu. With February 27 marked as a key day, political parties sharpen their strategies and alliances. Urkullu's meeting with Andoni Ortuzar, president of the PNV, and Eneko Andueza, general secretary of the PSE-EE, just after the elections in Galicia, highlights the importance of this political moment.

The results in Galicia, where the PP achieved a resounding victory and the PSdG its worst performance in regional elections are a reminder of the volatility and importance of the electoral context. The Urkullu's decision to call elections and the timing of this announcement are crucial and could define the political direction in Euskadi for the coming years.

We are witnessing a stage of political reconfiguration in Euskadi, where the alliances, strategies and decisions of political leaders will have a profound impact on the future of the region. The openness towards collaboration and the search for consensus, as demonstrated by the Otegi and Gorrotxategi movements, are indicative of a constantly evolving political landscape, where the will of the people and the ability to adapt to changes play a fundamental role.
