The PSOE has started its race towards the primaries for the regional and municipal elections of 2023 in a more abrupt way than expected. This Saturday, at the meeting that the President of the Government, Pedro Sanchez, maintained with the barons of the party in Zaragoza, an attempt was made to transmit a message of unity from all sides in the face of the next electoral challenges. However, it seems that it did not last long.
As EL ESPAÑOL already advanced, different voices from the party expressed their concern this weekend about the fact that the wear and tear that Sánchez may have ends up dragging the electoral mark of the entire party. One of the most critical in this regard, who has had no problem showing his opinions in public, has been the president of Castilla-La Mancha, Emiliano Garcia-Pagewhich has attacked the strategy of alliances in Congress that the PSOE is carrying out, in clear reference to United We Can and the rest of the minority partners.

The Minister of Education and national spokesperson for the party, Pillar Joyunderlined at a press conference held this Monday that “the image of unity was clear this weekend and all [los barones]”.
However, Ferraz sources have acknowledged that Page’s words and attitude have gone wrong within the formation. They accuse him of be waging a “lone war” and, curiously, they say it for the same reason as Page: for the acronym. They assure that in most places -except in small towns where people know the candidates face to face- people vote for the brand and that image is damaged after attitudes such as those that are being seen in recent days.
They recognize that everything is open to debate, but what is agreed must prevail. In that direction, Page wanted to respond this Monday when in a conference he assured that on Saturday he only spoke for 22 seconds.
