The president of the Partido Popular in the Town Hall of Albox are astonished after the latest accusations of the mayor of the town, Francisco Torrecillas, criticising the Partido Popular for, according to him, negotiating with councillors of his government team a motion of censure to remove him from the mayor’s office. The Popular Group has reminded the mayor of Alboja that “the only person responsible for the internal division of his party is him and his lack of leadership”.
From the Municipal Group of the PP they ask the mayor instead of inventing “false conspiracies against him” to focus on his government tasks because Albox needs a mayor who looks after the welfare of the residents and who does not spend the day thinking about “plots” that make no sense.
The Populars explain that for a motion of censure to go ahead in Albox, nine councillors are needed, and remind Francisco Torrecillas that the remaining councillors who are not part of his political group are seven, so two more are needed to be able to present such a motion. Furthermore, it would not be possible to add two councillors from the government team because it would be in breach of the Anti-Transfuguism Law.
“It is incomprehensible that Mr Torrecillas is unaware of the legislation and does not know that a motion of censure cannot be made by adding two of his councillors to those who are not part of his group. We ask him that instead of throwing his weight around and blaming others, he should solve the internal problems that he has in his party, which are repetitive corporation after corporation and are causing him to forget about his work at the head of the Town Hall”, they explain.
Furthermore, the PP of Albox affirm that “given the lack of knowledge that the mayor has shown about the legislation, we now understand that he has so many open fronts in the court”.
For the Popular Party it is inexplicable that Francisco Torrecillas is more concerned about an “impossible motion of censure” than solving problems that concern the residents such as the lack of industry and jobs, or the need to increase the number of Local Police in the municipality to ensure the safety of all.
Finally, the Popular Municipal Group stresses that they will continue to make a constructive and responsible opposition, passing on to the government team the numerous complaints that come to us from the residents and trying to ensure that the “misgovernment” that reigns in Albox affects as little as possible the day to day life of our town.
