SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, 22 Apr. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The president of the Canary Islands and PSOE candidate for re-election, Ángel Víctor Torres, has stated that on May 28 it will be necessary to decide between consolidating the political changes that have taken place in the Canary Islands and in Spain “or going back”.
This has been revealed this Saturday during the presentation of the PSOE candidacies in Tenerife, an act that was attended by the Minister of Industry, Tourism and Commerce, Héctor Gómez.
“Four years ago the political change took place in the Canary Islands and after 26 years the PSOE returned to the Presidency. I picked up the baton from Jerónimo Saavedra, but also four years ago the political change took place on the island of Tenerife with the arrival of Pedro Martín and we got the mayoralty of Puerto de La Cruz again,” he observed.
Torres made special emphasis that compared to others who say what they are going to do without giving an account of what they did and did not do, the Socialists “come to give an account of what we have done in these four years.”
“On May 28 – he added – we have to decide if we want to consolidate the political changes that have taken place in Tenerife, the Canary Islands and Spain, or we go back.”
Here, he defended that whenever the PSOE governs, what the party does is change people’s lives “for the better”, transform society to make it fairer and work “for a better Canary Islands”.
