Patxi López and Pilar Alegría will be the new speakers of the PSOE

A Man and a Woman. A veteran and an emerging figure. Pedro Sánchez has already communicated to those elected his proposals to assume the new singing voice of the PSOE, beyond his own. These are the exlehendakari Patxi López (Barakaldo, 1959), who will be the new spokesperson for the socialist group in Congress, and the Minister of Education and Vocational Training, Pilar Alegría (Zaragoza, 1977), who will be the new spokesperson for the federal executive of the PSOE.

The Basque Patxi López will thus replace the Canarian Héctor Gómez, who held the post since, in September last year, he relieved Adriana Lastra, who last Monday announced his resignation as Deputy Secretary General of the PSOE.

“It is an honor and an exciting challenge”, Patxi López pointed out before his new responsibility. “From the dialogue I will work to reach agreements that protect the middle and working class of this country”, he has promised.

Pilar Alegría, from Aragon, will take over as spokesperson for the socialist federal executive from Andalusian Felipe Sicilia, a leader very close to Lastra who took office at the last PSOE congress, held in Valencia last October.

"Together we are going to continue working to improve the lives of Spaniards with measures that benefit families and workers," said Pilar Alegría, who will make Ferraz's spokesperson compatible with the Education portfolio. "We are going to continue working to improve the present and settle the changes that strengthen the future of our country", she has transmitted.

The appointments of Patxi López and Pilar Alegría will be ratified this Saturday, at the meeting of the PSOE federal committee to be held at the Ferraz headquarters.
