"...Sanchez asked for the "majority confidence" of the Spanish people..."
On Thursday, the campaign season for Spain's general election scheduled on July 23 kicked off. The incumbent Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, candidate of the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party, and Alberto Nunez Feijoo from the People's Party, among others, are the major contestants for the post of the country's prime minister.
While launching his election bid, Sanchez asked for the "majority confidence" of the Spanish people, and assured that his party would be the "first political force;" he also vowed to help relieve the mortgage burden on the people.
"We are going to win the elections on July 23, and on the 24th, Spain will continue to be governed by the socialist party. We are going to be the leading political force in Spain," said Sanchez.
