In front of some 200 people gathered in the open-air Paseo del Salón, Granada, Espadas, 54, said he felt it necessary to overcome the “confrontation” of October 1, 2016, when Pedro Sánchez resigned after a federal committee . before the investiture of Mariano Rajoy, and the “self-criticism” of December 2, 2018, after the holding of the regional elections which allowed the PP and the Cs to govern in Andalusia, after 37 years of socialist governments.
Presented by Francisca Fernández, city councilor of Armilla, as the “ideal” candidate of the PSOE to return to govern Andalusia, Espadas stressed that this Sunday began not only the primary process, but the process that “will lead to the PSOE” at the Palacio de San Telmo, seat of the Andalusian executive.
To this, he added that his project is based on four fundamental pillars, such as “illusion, unity, fearless change and to govern with a solid and coherent project”, with a candidacy whose main objective is to put aside the confrontation between the Andalusian socialists. themselves and face “the two problems” which prevent them from obtaining the majority support of the Andalusians.

For all this, he advocated not to “lose hope” in the realization of the proposed challenges and in the “transformation of reality”, helping others and fighting for the “common good”.
Juan Espadas, who had words from memory for the Cadiz writer and poet José Manuel Caballero Bonald, who died at the age of 94 in Madrid; He urged to “ban” the comparative grievances between the Andalusian provinces, because we need a “strong” community that unites a “common” project, forgetting the differences.
