Ana Botella Serrano (born 23 July 1954) is a Spanish politician belonging to the Spanish People's Party and Mayor of Madrid since December 2011.

Political career

She was sworn in as mayor on 27 December 2011, after having been deputy mayor to Alberto Ruiz-Gallardón, mayor of the capital from 2003, who had resigned to serve as Justice Minister in the new government formed by Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy.

Botella has served on the Madrid City Council since 2003 where, as well as being deputy mayor, she has also headed the Departments of Social Services (2003-2007) and of the Environment (2007-2011).[1] She has been criticised for failure to tackle Madrid's air pollution which frequently exceeded permitted levels while she was responsible for the city's environment.[2]

On September 9, 2014 at 5PM, Ana Botella called a press conference after having cancelled all her appointments where she announced that she would not be running in the May 2015 municipal elections for mayor. [3]

Family life

She is the wife of the former Spanish prime minister José María Aznar.

Ana Botella and José María Aznar married in 1977, and have three children: José María Aznar Botella, Ana Aznar Botella, and Alonso Aznar Botella. Their daughter married Alejandro Agag at a lavish ceremony at the royal site of El Escorial on 5 September 2002.[4] Ana Botella has four grandchildren, Alejandro (born 4 June 2004 in Madrid), Rodrigo (born 13 December 2005 in Madrid), Pelayo (born 20 January 2008 in Madrid) and Alonso (born 22 December 2010 in Madrid) Agag Aznar.
