  • Adelante Andalucía chief Teresa Rodríguez will form an independent left-wing regionalist group

Unidas Podemos' (UP) leader in Andalucía has announced that 11 Podemos regional MPs, under the Adelante Andalucía banner, will break away.

They will form an independent left-wing regionalist group separate from Podemos and its current Izquierda Unida partners.

Adelante Andalucía chief Teresa Rodríguez is unhappy with UP's recent national coalition with the PSOE.
