| "For two months, the socialist mayor of Las Torres de Cotillas has governed by decree" | Since February Joaquín Vela has not had the opposition at all.
In the course of that time, the first mayor has neither called plenary sessions nor Informative Commissions and Boards of Spokespersons nor any other type of meetings with the councilors of all the political groups that make up the Local Corporation.No type of meeting for the municipalities to contribute their proposals and solutions both in the fight against the coronavirus and for the health, social and economic recovery of the town.
As far as the state of alarm is concerned, the socialist mayor has closed all official channels so that the opposition councilors can carry out their work as representatives of the Torrena citizens.
After repeated attempts to request plenary sessions and other meetings by various means, the PP councilors have only found a situation of emptiness in the Torreño mayor.Null predisposition and attitude of silence of Joaquín Vela to the wishes of collaboration of the councilmen of the PP in order to contribute initiatives in the fight against the Covid-19 in the town.
Thus, the mayor of Torreño passes the municipal democracy Olympics, blocking the operation of the Plenary and the work of the councilors.What is said to hinder the powers of the opposition in terms of exercising the development of the representation that the neighbors granted at the polls to the councilors of the PP refers to Nothing of transparency and democratic exercise in the City Council that directs the PSOE.With a mayor who ignores the opposition, closing the possibility of defending his ideas and measures in the main body of the democratic representation of this people, such as its plenary session.
Mayor, are we facing a dictatorial practice on your part under the pretext of a state of alarm? Let us hope that our city council does not degenerate into authoritarian vices.Don't silence the opposition.
With the law in hand, from the PP Torreño we demand democracy and transparency in the political management of the city council.With the signing of its 8 councilors, the PP of Las Torres de Cotillas requires the mayor to immediately call an Extraordinary Plenary to try and carry out a comprehensive package of urgent actions for the sanitary, social and economic recovery of the municipality (presented by the first week of April and expanded with more proposals over the course of so many days) and the creation of a Special Commission on Covid-19 made up of all the political groups of the Local Corporation.
