Pedro Sánchez has become indisputably the protagonist of recent days. After a few weeks full of controversy due to his pacts with the Catalan parties, the investiture debate of the socialist politician began yesterday in the Congress of Deputies.
On the first day of the debate we were able to see two of the most important women for the man from Madrid: his wife, Begoña Gómez, and his mother, Magdalena Pérez-Castejón. Both followed the session from the guest box of the official building.
The truth is that, despite the fact that Sánchez is one of the most popular faces in our country and has undergone countless interviews, little is known about his private life, just as there is little information about his family, friends and loved ones. dear ones.
Sánchez's mother is an ordinary 71-year-old woman who has worked her entire life to feed her children and ensure them a promising future. Daughter of a man from Murcia and a woman from Madrid, Pérez Castejón's father set up a hardware store in the Puente Vallecas neighborhood of Madrid to get ahead with work and dedication.
After living a humble childhood in the outskirts of Madrid, Sánchez's mother worked hard and managed to pass the exams and work as a Social Security official. In 1971, the woman walked down the aisle and married businessman Pedro Sánchez Hernández, very much in love. After receiving the sacrament of marriage, the couple moved to the Tetuán neighborhood to have and raise their two sons: Pedro and David Sánchez.
As has been learned, Magdalena studied law years later (she was 40 years old). Although the woman completed her studies and joined the bar, she has never practiced law professionally.
Pedro Sánchez is not having an easy few weeks. Since it came to light that they were negotiating the amnesty with the Catalan parties to obtain their support in the investiture and ensure that the elections are not repeated, Spain has been filled with demonstrations against said measure.
Although millions of people are disgusted with the socialist's position and show it clearly on social networks and in rallies throughout the territory, Sánchez has felt more supported than ever by his people. In particular, Sánchez feels close to the encouragement of his mother, who instilled in him a sense of duty and who supports him in each and every one of his decisions.
