The president of the Popular Party, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, will propose tomorrow Monday to the National Executive Committee the appointment of Carmen Fúnez as the new vice-secretary for Social Policies and Demographic Challenge.
In addition, one year after the Seville Congress that elected Feijóo as president of the party, the PP will expand its Steering Committee with two new Vice-secretaries: Culture and Open Society, which will be occupied by the campaign spokesperson, Borja Sémper; and Studies, which will be directed by Carmen Navarro, the party has reported.
Carmen Fúnez, current secretary of Electoral Action, will assume the Vice-secretary for Social Policies and Demographic Challenge, with which the PP wants to give relevance to the main challenge that, in their opinion, Spain must face in the medium term, given the low birth rate and the high aging of the population.
The PP thus puts the focus on the need for policies that favor the birth rate, combining them with a deepening of plans and policies for the elderly.
Together with Íñigo de la Serna, responsible for the electoral program for the next regional and municipal elections, Fúnez has extensive political experience.
She was president of Nuevas Generaciones, senator, deputy in the Castilla-La Mancha Parliament and president of the Confederation of Women in Equality. She emphasizes that she, as a parliamentarian, was a speaker for the Law on Effective Equality between Women and Men and the Social Economy Law. Precisely, she Fúñez promoted the creation of a special commission on demographic evolution and its consequences.
For his part, Borja Sémper, who after his return to politics assumed the responsibility of Campaign spokesperson, will now also serve as the new Vice-secretary for Culture and Open Society.
By raising Culture to the category of Vice-secretary, the PP wants to emphasize the rank of State policy that it should have. In the same way, this newly created Vice-secretariat will have the key competencies of Education and the Digital Challenge, which are fundamental pillars in Spain's future strategy, the PP has highlighted.
For her part, Carmen Navarro assumes new powers within the PP organization chart, for which she will coordinate the studies and analyzes in the party to enrich her project at a moment of great importance in terms of the configuration of the political ideology with which they are going to face the year-end elections.
His new organic responsibilities will be made compatible with his recent appointment to the Board of the Congress of Deputies.
Likewise, the vacancy that Fúnez leaves in the Electoral Action secretary will be assumed by David Parry, who has a long professional career in the PP Communications department, where he started working in 2002.
Parry has worked in the municipal group of Barcelona, in the Parliament of Catalonia and in the Congress of Deputies. In addition, she has assumed different party responsibilities, both on the regional and national sides.
