Spanish Opposition Leader Pressed to Quit by Rival, Pais Says

Dec. 16 (Bloomberg) -- Spanish opposition leader Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba was asked to step aside and allow a new generation to take the Socialists forward by the party’s regional chief in Madrid, El Pais reported.

Tomas Gomez, 44, told Rubalcaba, 61, at a meeting of senior officials in Madrid yesterday that the party needed new leaders with fresh ideas, the newspaper reported, citing unidentified advisers to Gomez.

Gomez was left isolated after the 18 other regional chiefs present declined to support his call, the newspaper added.
