Rosa Aguilar announces that she is leaving politics and will not repeat on the electoral lists of the Andalusian PSOE


Rosa Aguilar (Córdoba, 1957), historical leader of IU, former mayor of her city, former deputy in Congress, former socialist minister, former counselor of the Junta de Andalucía and current Andalusian parliamentarian has announced this Thursday that she will leave the front line of politics when this legislature ends and after a career of 35 years.

She has announced it in her hometown, accompanied by colleagues, friends and the general secretary of the Andalusian PSOE, Juan Espadas, who will not include her name on the provincial lists for the next Andalusian elections. She herself told him that she would not continue, according to what she has related, although the new socialist leader had already announced a “total renewal” of the team, inherited from the stage of Susana Díaz.

Rosa Aguilar is currently a deputy in the Andalusian Parliament with the PSOE. In 2009, the former president of the Junta de Andalucía, José Antonio Griñán, recruited her by surprise for her first government, appointing her Minister of Public Works and Transport. She barely spent a year in that brief stage, because in 2010 she was signed by José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero as Minister of the Environment, Rural and Marine Affairs. Aguilar entered politics from grassroots Christians and became a benchmark in the IU call for Andalusia by Julio Anguita, another distinguished Cordovan. She was one of the toughest deputies against the Government of Felipe González and, years later, she joined the PSOE, in which she has spent more than a decade in the last stretch of her career.

This Thursday, excited, she highlighted above all her time at the Mayor’s Office of Córdoba, which she governed between 1999 and 2009. After her time at the ministry, she returned to the Andalusian Government to the portfolio she had held. Susana Díaz appointed her Minister of Culture in her first Executive in 2015, and in the following legislature she went on to occupy the Justice and Interior portfolio. Díaz kept her in starting positions on the 2018 electoral lists and currently she is part of the socialist parliamentary group -with 33 seats-, although the arrival of Espadas at her direction relegated her to the background.

Swords wanted to give all the prominence of the day to Rosa Aguilar, he thanked her for her work and assured that he will continue to count on his experience, although he is no longer part of the front line.
