Díez faces challenge for leadership of UPyD

Rosa Díez, spokesman of the UPyD in Congress is facing a challenge from within her party today for the right to head the electoral lists at the forthcoming general election, and thereby become the de facto UPyD presidential candidate.

The party rules allow for any member to contest primary elections for the key posts without the need for a minimum level of support. This has allowed five members of the party to put their names forward to challenge Díez for first place in the lists for Madrid. The election will take place today, and all party members in the country will have a chance to vote.

Similar primaries are taking place in all the provinces across the country, as the UPyD seeks to establish which position each candidate will take in the forthcoming election. In Valencia, actor Toni Cantó (pictured) is seeking to head the lists.
