Spain’s Popular Party to Send Delegation to U.S. Democratic National Convention

WASHINGTON – Spain’s Popular Party will send a delegation to the Democratic National Convention, scheduled to start on Monday in Philadelphia, after refusing to dispatch a similar team to the Republican convention, the Spanish conservative party said on Sunday.

PP spokesman and the vice president of the PP Group in the European Parliament, or EPP, Esteban Gonzalez Pons, will head the delegation at the convention, where former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be formally selected to be the Democratic presidential nominee.

Accompanying Gonzalez Pons at the convention will be EPP secretary general Antonio Lopez-Isturiz and the vice presidents of that group, Lara Comi and Esther de Langue, the PP said in a statement.

In the statement, Gonzalez Pons said that “traditionally” the EPP has maintained relations both with both the Republican Party and the Democratic Party, but on this occasion it is only attending the latter’s convention because it feels that the Democrats’ “program is closer to the principles and values” it defends in Europe.

The Republican convention concluded last Thursday with the acceptance speech by real estate magnate Donald Trump, who was formally selected to be the Republicans’ presidential nominee.

“Relations between the U.S. and the EU are basic, and after the Brexit even more so, for confronting global challenges such as terrorism, climate change, the fight against poverty and the management of big immigration flows,” Gonzalez Pons said.

In Philadelphia, the PP politicians will meet with Democratic representatives to be briefed on Clinton’s domestic and international program and on elements of her presidential campaign.
