Always with you, fellow Rubalcaba

In tune with the high emotional intensity presided over the 40th Federal Congress of the PSOE, the closing day opened with a tribute to Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba, former Secretary General and former Vice President of the Government, died in 2019 at 67. It was a moment that moved the more than nine thousand people that the socialists convened at the Fair of Valencia.

The tribute included a video by remembering his figure, and some of his most important interventions, the discovery of a bust of the deceased leader and some serene and sincere words of Pilar Goya, the widow of Rubalcaba. The images included the praise of the former president of the Congress of the PP, Jesus Posada, a "a great figure of parliamentarism" and some of the most passionate phrases with which Rubalcaba referred to the pride of him belonging to the PSOE.

"I am a socialist militant, and that is never left." "The PSOE does not owe me anything, I owe everything to the PSOE." Ximo Puig, the president of the 40th Federal Congress, defined the former deceased leader as a "great honest, brave, bold, decent and humble."

The widow of Rubalcaba, excited but serene, thanked the affection and the affection he has felt of the PSOE and Spanish society since the death of her husband. "She could have chosen another thing, but she chose the difficult path of politics. She never regretted. The PSOE was the house of her and you the people of her," said Pilar Goya.

She also milita for decades in the PSOE - "I am also here in my house and with my people" - and he remembered some of her husband's words about the values that socialists defend, such as equality - who nobody is more than Nobody-, the freedom and the rights of people.

Pilar Goya remembered the special emotion with which he lived the end of ETA, after the "loss of so many friends", and quoting her husband proclaimed that "Socialists are more necessary than ever."
