Pello Otxandiano was born and lives in the Biscayan town of Otxandio. He studied Engineering in Mondragon Unibertsitatea. In 2011, along with the legalization of Bildu, he began to be a councilor in his village. Today, EH Bildu’s programme is director.

At the press conference offered by Otegi on 11 December, Pello Otxandiano explained that this is a “qualitative investment”, as he is currently director of the coalition program. He has underlined its virtues: reliability, certainty, commitment, soul and passion for the Basque Country. He adds that he is Euskaldun, committed to the Basque and father of two daughters.

Candidate President Man

At the press conference, a journalist asks whether they have had the candidature of being a woman on the table. Otegui replies that yes, the genre is always on the table: “Our commitment to feminism is obvious. So far we have presented women, we have presented women in Nafarroa Garaia”, and he has also recalled the female candidatures of the Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa and the municipalities of Vitoria and Bilbao. He adds: “Pello Otxandiano represents, among others, feminist commitment.”

Spokesperson for the Parliamentary Group and President of Parliament

The coalition will elect for the first time the spokesman of the parliamentary group, as well as the candidate for the presidency of Parliament. Both functions have been chosen taking into account “political and electoral importance”. However, Otegi has not given the names of the two chosen, claiming that they are still to be decided, but that they have “profiled”.
