This Friday the first meeting between Juan Espadas and Susana Díaz was finally held after the socialist primaries last Sunday that resulted in the victory of the mayor of Seville. Despite the strategy for the former president of the Junta de Andalucía to leave the general secretary of the Andalusian Socialists by her own foot, Díaz has not raised his resignation in this first meeting although he has transferred to Espadas his “total disposition” to execute “what as soon as possible “the transition process in the PSOE of Andalusia.
This has been indicated by sources close to the newly elected in primaries as a candidate for the regional elections by the PSOE-A, Juan Espadas, who has addressed in a first working meeting with the general secretary of the PSOE-A, Susana Díaz, the changes to carry out as a result of the outcome of the primaries held last Sunday. It should be remembered that Díaz, that same night, announced that he would not run for reelection as general secretary of the Andalusian PSOE but would maintain the position until the party’s congress, scheduled for December.
According to these sources, the meeting was held “in a climate of cordiality and mutual collaboration, as was stated by both on the same election night,” having “analyzed the steps to be taken in the coming days to transfer the new leadership in the PSOE- A to the leadership of the parliamentary group “.
In this sense, the proposal of the candidate for the new direction is that Ángeles Férriz be the new spokesperson for the group, replacing José Fiscal, and that María Márquez, Gerardo Sánchez and Araceli Maese be the deputy spokespersons, who are currently Rodrigo Sánchez Haro and Manuel Jiménez Barrios.
This proposal “will be transferred to the permanent office of the executive next Monday, as well as to the parliamentary group to make it effective in the plenary session next week,” the sources detail.
Susana Díaz has transferred to Juan Espadas her full willingness to carry out this transition process as soon as possible, as well as the rest of the changes in the parliamentary group, so that in the coming days they will continue to advance on these issues, the sources conclude.
