On Wednesday, interim president Vicente Boluda stated that he is considering changing the elections to June, while many top brass members are looking at May. “It would be a model similar to how they do it in the US,” said Eugenio Martínez Bravo, the president of the Junta Blanca. “Obama was elected in November, but did not take over until January.”
