Oh dear

It seems that nothing about political life in Bigastro is straightforward.

When the PP formed a coalition with the UNPLC, they made decisions about the salaries that should be awarded to the mayor and the deputy mayor. On that basis, Charo Bañuls quit her job to work full time as mayor.

The socialists, lead by Raúl Valerio Medina, have now called that decision into question and the ruling in court makes the situation far from clear.

If the court ruling is upheld, then three years salary would have to be returned. To throw a further spanner into the works, Aurelio Murcia claims that Bañuls has not earned the money she was paid which amounts to 84,000 euros to which he says should be added social security and tax - a further 40%.

As you might imagine, the mayor is anxious to have this matter cleared up  pronto!
