They call it a pre-campaign, but the campaign has already begun. There is already a message building and the first election promises. At least in the case of Juan Espadas, PSOE candidate for the presidency of the Junta of Andalusia, who this Saturday held an official presentation with Pedro Sánchez (President of the Spanish government and general secretary of the party) in Torredelcampo, Jaén, one of the provinces where the socialists are most strong.
First, the message: the need for “pride” and the call for “participation.” Swords pulled history and dates back to May 23, 1982, when the PSOE won the Andalusian elections for the first time, the first regional elections. “This should make us proud” that we removed Andalusia “from the backwardness and humiliation where they wanted to put us” compared to “Andalusians, this is not your right referendum” which was before 28F and the approval of the Statute of Autonomy of the conservative parties to call for a vote against.
He also wanted to support this “socialist pride” in the actions of the Sánchez government, boasting about a “government that helps the people” and then accusing President Moreno Bonilla of “failing” to manage the resources of the central government. “We would like the socialist governments to receive the economic transfers that this leftist government provided to Andalusia.” “The socialist government of Spain is the best calling card of a socialist to win elections.”
Espadas also strongly urged participation, believing that “if we vote, we win”. He confirmed to activists and sympathizers that the PP is playing demobilization, that she is using demoscopy “to try to change people’s feelings”, and that they think “voting won’t matter” and “propaganda” to win the media. service. He specifically polled the 350,000 new voters who will come to the polls on June 19 and urged them to “take to the streets.” “We have 35 days to mobilize socialists and explain in the street that the PSOE government is not the same as the PP government, apart from social media.” “Individual mobilization becomes a tide,” says the socialist leader.
In a speech littered with criticism of Moreno’s leadership “el suavón” for not taking on the problems of the Andalusians (“there is nothing that is his problem and he never had the opportunity to solve it”), he made two clear campaign promises. Very ambitious, considering the unemployment rate in the Andalusian Autonomous Community (20% rate): to halve the unemployment rate in one legislature. And he ensured that they were achieved through “projects on the table and public investment.” And another in which he promised that “no neighbor needs 48 hours to be treated at a primary care center”, after criticizing the delays in care during the government of PP and Cs, one of the political flags that most socialists campaigned for past. year.
According to Ángeles Ferris (number 1 for Jaén), Swords raised the 19J nomination as a no-grey nomination: either the socialist party or the PP and far-right Vox govern. “This is not about fear-mongering, but about reality. And you will have to choose between one company or another,” Espadas said. He briefly named Juan Marin and Ciudadanos, and the merger of parties to his left did not merit a single mention in the speech.
For his part, the Prime Minister pointed out that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is not only a dispute between the two countries, but also part of Vladimir Putin’s strategy to wind down the project, and warned, referring to VOX, that “Europe’s enemies are not in the Kremlin,” but ” in Spain”.
The event was attended, in addition to the Prime Minister, by Pedro Sanchez; number one for Jaén, Angeles Ferris; President of the Provincial Council of Jaén, Francisco Reyes; Minister of Agriculture Luis Planas and Minister of Finance Maria Jesús Montero.
