In November 2009 he was appointed coordinator of the PPCV and since then it has been gaining weight in the party. Camps announces his resignation as President of the Generalitat Valenciana. Operation Gurtel: chronology of the investigation into alleged corruption. Alberto Fabra, current Mayor of Castellon and coordinator of the Popular Party in the region of Valencia, will be the next President of the Generalitat valenciana and the new leader of the popular Valencians.
So Francisco Camps, proposed it this Wednesday following his resignation as head of both charges, the Regional Policy Board, which approved by acclamation the option of Alberto Fabra, who has no family relationship with Carlos Fabra, former President of the provincial Council of Castellon. The Favorites in the beginning were Rita Barbera, Mayoress of Valencia, and Paula Sanchez de Leon, Vice President of the Consell. However, neither conservers at the resigned Camps. Barbera, the leader of the Valencian PP with greater popularity, has 63 years, compared with the 47 of Fabra, a leader with greater political distance. For its part, Sanchez de Leon is a policy of maximum confidence of Francisco Camps, which helped him to be appointed Vice President, but also options being the successor now that Camps were in a situation of extreme political weakness has subtracted him. Valencia will have for the first time in the history of democracy a Castellon at the forefront of the Generalitat. Alberto Fabra (Castellon, 1964) is Deputy Regional since 2007 and Councillor of the Castellon City Council since 1991, as well as Mayor of this city since 2005. In November 2009, with one of the Gurtel crisis, he was appointed regional coordinator of the PPCV, which fired its options as a possible successor to Francisco Camps.
In fact, Alberto Fabra counted in his favor with the support of the general secretariat of the PP and President of the Junta of Castilla – La Mancha, Maria Dolores de Cospedal, who before the repeated refusals of Rita Barbera – the option initially prria Rajoy – opt to relieve Camps surveyed the option from the Mayor of Castellon. Alberto Fabra consensus solution can be considered a solution of consensus among the different sensitivities of the PP in Valencia. Not in vain, is a person who has always maintained loyalty to Francisco Camps, who has been giving him greater inner power. It also has the support of the provincial direction of the PP in Castellon. Even is well seen by the still provincial President of the PP in Alicante, zaplanista Joaquin Ripoll.
