Under two months before Catalonia's early election, Lorena Roldán has made public her decision to leave Ciudadanos to join the conservative People's Party after what she called a "long and difficult reflection process."

Roldán was elected Ciudadanos' frontrunner for the February 14 vote before the party leadership chose Carlos Carrizosa for that position.

According to her, there are "certain decisions made by the party's permanent executive, many of which are made unilaterally, that deviate from the party's essence."

The politician has also resigned from the Senate, though it is not yet clear if she will be leaving the Catalan parliament.
