New Spain opposition leader vows to get country 'back on track'

New Secretary General of Spanish Socialist Party (PSOE) Pedro Sanchez gestures on the second and last day of the PSOE extraordinary congress in Madrid on July 27, 2014The new leader of Spain’s main opposition Socialist Party vowed Sunday during his inaugural speech to lead the party back to power and get the crisis-hit country “back on track”. Pedro Sanchez, a 42-year-old economist who was virtually unknown only a few months ago, said Spain was “exasperated, angry, hurt” after six years of “unprecedented” economic crisis during a speech to an extraordinary party congress in Madrid. “We are standing up again to get Spain back on track,” he said to the applause of some 3,000 party delegates at the congress. Sanchez replaces veteran politician Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba, 62, who stepped down in May after the Socialists suffered their worst-ever election showing in a European Parliament vote.
