Carlos Carrizosa

The time for the Ciudadanos’ plumber has come

Carlos Carrizosa (1964, Barcelona) made his debut as a Ciudadanos candidate through a discreet press release sent on the night of August 19, when most of his potential voters were on holidays. An emergency solution to the crisis of leadership, implementation and message that the new government of Inés Arrimadas was facing at that time. An organic decision that was not decided through primaries. The eternal plumber of Cs made his way through the chain of command without glamor, or consensus, or the magnetism of his predecessors, but with a mission: to roll up his sleeves and face a campaign with the certainty of an assured failure. An emphatic anti-independence movement politician, Carrizosa brought his long experience as a criminal lawyer to the Parliament - he entered as an MP for the first time in 2012 - where he has often turned the political debate into litigation. With the same insistence with which he takes off and puts his glasses on in plenary sessions, he forced retreats and meetings of the table and the Board of Spokespersons in the full marathon of September 6 and 7, 2017. This was a key moment in his personal career, since it placed him on the map of constitutionalism after years of working in the shadows, building from various positions in the government the praetorian guard that has defended from internal criticism of "Caesarism." “He very much believes in the principles of the party”, his right hand in Parliament, Joan García, promises. That is why Carrizosa, who has been a member of Cs since the party was born, seeks direct confrontation with his rivals. His harsh and implacable tone has made him a hero for the fieriest unionism, but also the perfect independence movement comic book supervillain - one of his hobbies outside of politics. This character without nuances is blurred in the short distances, where he turns into a fan of navigation, Greek mythology and the history of Rome. He displayed his references in one of the tensest general council meetings of Ciudadanos, when the party was plunged into a Cainite struggle shortly after the resignation of Albert Rivera, in an intervention published by Eldiario.es. "We are the ones who are united, and the Romans are out there", he warned: "We will not open up because the media are willing to take our guts and hurt us”. With a meager hope of cushioning the expected crash in the polls, the former supporting actor takes a step forward on these 14-F elections.
