José Luis Ábalos officializes his resignation to be the 'number 3' of the PSOE remembering Pedro Sánchez his loyalty in these years

An official expected by the PSOE is already official, especially by the Dome of the Party after the departure of the executive until Monday Minister of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda in the recent government crisis executed by Pedro Sánchez.

José Luis Ábalos has submitted its resignation to the Secretary Organization of the PSOE, in a letter aimed at both the PSOE Secretary General and the Federal Executive Committee. It is already firm what most in the party were for granted.

In the letter, Ábalos wanted to highlight the loyalty and sense of duty that for four intense years, exposes the former number 3 of the PSOE, has been carrying out within the game. In the midst of rumors and controversy by the departure of the government and the PSOE, he has defined the goodbye of him as a "matured and necessary decision from the personal and family point of view," socialist sources explain.

After its departure, and as already organized within the Party, Santos Cerdán, until now Secretary of Territorial Coordination, will assume the competences of the Organization Secretariat, as well as the tasks of preparation of the Federal Congress.

At only three months for the great socialist appointment, it has been chosen for not making a new appointment to occupy the emptiness of Ábalos. Cerdán, in fact, already exercised de facto as number two organizations and now it will expand the field of action.

The other figure that assumes the control of the PSOE is Adriana Lastra. The Vice-secretary general assumes "plenipotentiary" powers and takes the reins of the party. Lastra, which was already the lieutenant in the game, "assumes the address of everything in the game to Congress," explains socialist sources. She will spend more time in ferraz with that purpose to reactivate the political project.

Ábalos, in his farewell letter, reveals that he leaves the direction of a "cohesioned" party around the leadership of the Secretary General and president of the Government, Pedro Sánchez. Likewise, he moves to his colleagues that the party "is today a stronger and more aware of his hegemonic role on the left" and much more capable of "mobilizing" society.
