Agreement in the meeting

Looking at the agenda for last night’s council meeting, I spotted items 9 and 10 – motions to prevent imputed councillors from appearing on the lists for the forthcoming election. I assumed that the ruling PP would be in favour but would the socialists who have more seats at council?

The answer came in the papers this morning when I read that motion 9 had been passed unanimously by all parties. BIgastro was following the model set out in Alicante where the ex mayor Sonia Castedo, who has also been charged with corruption, agreed not to stand this year. Motion 10, put by the Liberals was in a similar vein.

However, there is a twist to the tale because Raul Valerio Medina claims that he will still be eligible to stand for election on the basis that the alleged offences against him cannot be considered to be corruption.
