Francisco Molina, who stood in the municipal elections at the head of the Izquierda Unida list in the municipality of Líjar and was removed from the organisation after reaching a government agreement with the Popular party, gave an interview to La Comarca Noticias in which he explained the reasons for his decision.
Now in his capacity as deputy mayor for two years (he will be mayor of Líjar for the last two years of the legislature), Molina assured that the decision of the local assembly was to reach an agreement with the PP, giving priority to the interests of the town. “We are here to make life easier for our neighbours. We are people committed to our assembly and to our town.
“Above political acronyms is the welfare of the residents. What we know how to do is to work,” the former IU member said when asked by this newspaper.
As for the relationship of the party he represents with the socialist group in Líjar, -IU governed in coalition with the PSOE two legislatures ago-, Molina assured that the silence of the PSOE government in the face of important questions during the last legislature, caused them to turn to the Andalusian Ombudsman. “They do not answer our questions, the Provincial Plans are not executed, the urban furniture is not repaired, such as the litter bins that have been broken since 2020, four rural houses have to be legalised and put into operation, and the motorhome site. From the opposition we have presented 120 actions”.
“Líjar must take precedence over any ideology,” said Francisco Molina, who in this legislature, with two councillors, reached a government pact with the PP which means two years of government for each of the formations.
