Socialist executive members resign en masse in bid to push out Sánchez

A total of 17 members of the Socialist Party’s executive committee resigned from their positions on Wednesday, in a bid to force out the group’s general secretary, Pedro Sánchez. The 17 resignations, combined with three previous vacancies, account for the majority of the governing body, meaning that Sánchez’s position at the helm of the group is effectively untenable.
