SPANISH Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE) secretary general candidate Eduardo Madina announced that he believes Susana Diaz’s statement that she will not be running.
The current president of Andalucia, Diaz has decided not to run for secretary general, even though she was previously the favourite, receiving support from previous PSOE leaders Felipe Gonzalez and Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero.
Diaz has instead decided to remain in Andalucia, believing the region to be important enough for the country to require special attention in light of the economic crisis.
After announcing this decision on Cadera Ser radio, Mrs. Díaz added she was also influenced by a desire to demonstrate how “a different type of politics is possible” for Andalucia and the country as a whole.
