Juanma Moreno, the president of Andalucia gave an update at the end of the meeting of the Governing Council which Mr Marin had been attending when he was taken ill. He reportedly began to notice some tension and dizziness issues as he was posing for a photo with the rest of the councillors in the Alcazaba of Almeria.
Jesus Aguirre, the Health Minister – who is a doctor – offered assistance at the first sign of t problem. Marin is known to have suffered recurrent heart problems in the previous legislature, from which he recovered. Sources close to Mr Marin indicated that he had suffered several weeks of severe stress, due to various circumstances, including politics.
Prominent members of the other Andalucian political parties spoke out on social networks expressing their concern about the state of health of the vice president, after hearing the president’s announcement.
