Frans Timmermans in Barcelona ahead of crucial general election

The PES Common Candidate, Frans Timmermans, travelled to Barcelona today to campaign alongside Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez. In just three days, Spanish voters will head to the polls to vote in a crucial general election. 

The campaign of PES member party PSOE is focusing on core progressive principles – strengthening women’s rights, investment in social policies, and a commitment to stand up against the far-right. Prime Minister Sánchez has a strong progressive record, which includes appointing a majority female cabinet – the first in Spain’s history - and significantly raising Spain’s minimum wage, helping millions of low paid workers.
