The 2017 Podemos state assembly—officially the 2nd Citizen Assembly, and more informally referred to as Vistalegre II[1]—was held between 7 December 2016 and 12 February 2017.[2] From 4 to 11 February, party members would be allowed to vote on the party's strategic proposals as well as on the new leadership composition.[3] While Pablo Iglesias's re-election bid as Secretary General was not disputed,[4] there was strong media interest in the assembly because of a strong internal debate between Iglesias and his Political Secretary, Íñigo Errejón, on the party's strategy and main lines of action for the ensuing years.[5]
