Juan Antonio Lorenzo Cazorla was the candidate for general secretary of PSOE of Almeria. He wanted to express his gratitude to more than 1,000 militants who endorsed him candidacy. Lorenzo Cazorla thanked those who signed the guarantee. He expressed his gratitude via social media for the "wave of enthusiasm and commitment" that was generated by the more than a 1000 guarantees that were sent to him in less than three weeks since the PSOE of Almeria groups met. This is the same message that we just presented Friday>>. He stressed in this context that the signatures are support for "the union and municipalism" as well as that "behind these groups and their affiliateds, crucial for their active role of militancy", and he is tremendously grateful to you for your support.
Juan Antonio Lorenzo's candidacy has received the endorsements from the provincial headquarters in Almeria of the PSOE to allow him to participate in the primary process to elect the next secretary-general of the PSOE. The candidate has been on a tour of the province, meeting in many municipalities and gaining the support of local militancy.
Lorenzo Cazorla's candidacy decided to deposit Friday afternoon -one-day before the deadline - all guarantees received up until this point so that the Organizing Committee gets the maximum guarantees and proceeds to dispose of the rest once they have validated the ones necessary to concur in the process. The range for this census is between 3 to 6%, that is 140 to 280 guarantees.
"The mayors, mayors, councilors, or spokespersons are a very clear illustration of what active listening our secretary general Juan Espadas promulgates now," says the candidate to lead Almeria socialists. He believes it is vital to include the municipalist vision into decision-making and party strategy. Juan Antonio Lorenzo believes this is the best way to ensure that the party stays "permanently updated" in terms of what society needs and demands of a political organisation like ours.
"Municipalism is going to lead us to get electoral spaces that are not ours now because it's the tool to reach governments which are the ones that end-up changing and improving society," said the mayor of Seron during the days spent in meetings with groups and affiliates.
