ACTING Science minister Pedro Duque, who has strong Javea ties, attended the recent March for Life organised by the cancer charity, AECC.
Duque, who has a home in Javea and is married to the Javea-born diplomat Consuelo Femenia, also met members of AMARAC, an association for high-performing children.
While in the area he found time to visit Javea’s lighthouse and the Riurau market in Jesus Pobre.
Duque, who will head the PSOE’s voting list for Alicante province on November 10, was accompanied by socialist candidates Patricia Blanquer, Alejandro Soler y Jose Asensi as well as Jose Chuli and Javier Scotto, mayors of Javea and Jesus Pobre respectively.
Campaigning for the November 10 general election does not begin officially until tomorrow, November 1 but while the party were in Javea, Patricia Blanquer accused the Partido Popular leader Pablo Casado of scaremongering.
During Casado’s recent visit to Alicante he claimed that the PSOE was ill-prepared to solve Spain’s economic problems.
“It’s not good for the country,” she said, “and besides, he didn’t put any initiatives on the table apart from saying that the PP were economic champions.”
