Communication of the resignation to G.L.E. from W.B. Manuel Torres

COMMUNIQUE OF R.H. MANUEL TORRES

Los masones de España ante el reto de su democratización

Òscar de Alfonso ha sido reelegido este sábado gran maestro (equivalente a presidente) de la Gran Logia de España (GLE), la principal obediencia masónica española por estructura y número de miembros. Se mantiene en el cargo desde 2010. En estas peculiares elecciones tan sólo concurrían dos candidatos: el continuista De Alfonso, que obtuvo 480 votos (59%), y el renovador Manuel Torres, que se quedó en 334 votos (41%). Los dos son abogados, originarios de Valencia, aunque el segundo ha desarrollado toda su carrera profesional en Barcelona.

Austerity transparency and accountability. The Treasury belongs to everyone.

We ought to vote in freedom and in conscience. The future of G.L.E. belongs to everyone.

Depending on your vote the G.L.E., benchmark of the ancient Landmarks, is for everyone.

Regularity requires ethics, aesthetics and open spirituality.

Dear Brethren:

The date on which it is possible to establish the foundations of the future of the Spanish regular Freemasonry is approaching.

With the participation of all the brothers and integrating all the Masonic sensitivities that enrich our institution, we will achieve a positive, strengthening in order to obtain an initiatory command in which we achieve with effort and work the fullness that we all yearn and that was the reason for our decision to embark on this journey.

At the same time, we will be in a position to transmit to society the values and principles of the tradition that we have inherited from our ancestors.

You can count on many brothers involved in the project that I have the honor to lead with a sincere attitude of service to make it a reality. Obviously, we are open to continuing to incorporate all those Brethren, whatever their degree, that identify themselves with a promising future.

The progress and modernization of Freemasonry are demands of our personal commitment and our permanent contribution to humanity.

I remain, as always at your disposal, kind and fraternal salutations.

Manuel Torres Izquierdo
