This Sunday, February 18, the elections were held in Galicia. Citizens of the region went to the polls to elect the next president of the Xunta. For the 2024 elections, the candidates were Alfonso Rueda (PP), Ana Pontón (BNG), José Ramón Gómez Besteiro (PSOE), Marta Lois (Sumar), Isabel Faraldo (Vamos) and Álvaro Díaz-Mella (Vox). We must also not forget Armando Ojea, the candidate of Democracia Ourensana (DO). He is deputy mayor of the municipality of Orense and “number two” to the controversial municipal councilor Gonzalo Pérez Jácome. The party assures that “there is no better candidate to defend the interests of Orense in Santiago.” And the party trusts him since its leader, Jácome, could not participate because Galician law declares mayors ineligible.

He was denounced by socialists Xuventudes Socialistas de Galicia (XSG) in the province who denounced the councilor in 2019. They demanded his immediate resignation after a series of “infamous transphobic comments” posted on Facebook. All this is the result of the PSOE’s proposal to include an “X” in the DNI for minors who consider themselves neither men nor women. Ojea gave his opinion on the social network. “Of course, what matters is how you feel. For example, I feel hairy. And with the age box, the same. What you have to indicate on the DNI is the age at which you feel”, he wrote.
