Socialist leader gives up after poll disaster
Rubalcaba, announcing his resignation on Monday. :: I. B. P.
Following the worst election results in recent history the Socialist party has decided that things have to change. Secretary general Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba announced on Monday that he would be resigning from his post and called a party conference for July.
The announcement immediately sparked speculation as to the name of his successor, a key player being the current president of Andalucía, Susana Díaz.
Nevertheless, despite pressure from some circles to move into the foreground on a national level, Díaz has made it clear that her priority is Andalucía.
For the time being she is refusing to let the upheaval in Madrid spoil her glory, as the Socialists did “win” the elections in the south of Spain.
Nevertheless, the Andalusian leader pointed out, “We don’t have time for much celebrating. We have high unemployment.”
Meanwhile in Madrid, Rubalcaba’s number two in parliament, Eduardo Madina, has said that he will only opt for the leader’s job if the selection process involves a direct vote, open to all party members.
