Rivera, in the orbit of the PP
Since he left politics, after the elections of November 10, 2019, Albert Rivera has been moving away from his party and closer to the PP. What’s more, he has not even participated in the political conference last weekend despite being invited.
Rivera signed last year with the Martínez-Echevarría law firm, on which the leader of the PP, Pablo Casado, has relied to appeal some laws, such as the Catalan rental law. In this time, the popular ones have not only not closed the door to Rivera, but have also opened the door to his signing.
Moreover, the former secretary of the Citizens’ organization in Rivera’s time, Fran Hervías, works for the PP, where he has an office in Genoa from which he is presumed to be responsible for the disbandment of orange leaders to the PP after the failed motion of censure that the oranges promoted with the PSOE in Murcia.
