The first meeting of the executive was held at the PSOE headquarters on Friday night. Juan Angel Perez, the general secretary of the town group, described the group as "excited executive" and stressed the importance of this first meeting to discuss, not only the guidelines for what will be the work to do from now but also to comment about some current issues.
Some of these points were already made in his short speech before the militancy on the 27th of July, the day that the assembly elected him to head the PSOE in Alcala. Perez Arjona started by saying that he was trying to reach out to all militants to find their opinions. "We have to make an effort to join forces," he continued. He hopes that the role of militancy will gain more weight in this new stage, and that members will be and will be encouraged to take part more than they have done before. He acknowledged that there have been more PSOE members since his election and that it is expected that they will increase in numbers.
Juan Angel Perez stated that they had already met with the municipal group. The latter was also invited to the first meeting of executive. In this meeting, the PSOE councilors as well as Antonio Lopez Cano, Secretary of Municipal Policy, participated. Perez said that it was a productive meeting with a desire and desire for work.
The Secretary General stated that one of the objectives of the new executive is to recover headquarters. This would allow for the reunion and gathering of the militancy. Ideas and activity will arise there.
The executive will also be looking at the point about militancy. This is the point that was mentioned by Juan Angel Perez. They insist on the need to examine the society's relationship and develop new communication strategies through social networks and with local groups. A calendar of meetings will be established. Juan Angel Perez stated, "It is essential that we recover the streets again." This was a point he has always defended and which he feels has been lost in the previous stage.
The discussion included the defense of the socialist legacy and current issues like the return of class and the agreement between the FEMP/Ministry of Finance. Perez feels that the mayor of the city "is doing theater" again and is making opposition to the government, which may be what he knows best.
"I would love to hear from you all. The current secretary general said that although we have a large executive, everyone can contribute. He also pointed out that the best way to move forward in the new journey is to make the town council "socialist". He recalled that his fellow candidates, Carlos Hinojosa, who are largely within the municipal group, could be part of the new executive. He stressed that "Since 27th, we are the same entity." Concerning the resignations by Carlos Hinojosa, and Cecilia Alameda, he said that he had contacted the other colleagues on the list. They hope to find out, in a short time, if they are interested in joining the group. municipal . His figure was not "absolutely required in the plenary room, even though it is the most relevant forum on a political level."
