MADRID – Eyeing Catalonia, Sánchez promises social and territorial dialogue

Newly re-elected socialist Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, vowed “social, territorial and generational” dialogue to be at the core of his mandate, with an eye on the political conflict in Catalonia.  

Sánchez’s gender-balanced cabinet, which happens to also be the first coalition since the restoration of the country’s democracy, intends to “speak with one voice”, whilst drawing inspiration from different sources. Out of the cabinet’s four vice-presidencies, three will be female, while the fourth will be the far-left leader and former MEP Pablo Iglesias (Unidas Podemos). (Beatriz Rios |
