Ciudadanos announced that it has broken the pact it made with the PP to govern Churriana de la Vega. It became part of the opposition in response to Antonio Narvaez's popular mayor who rewarded the PSOE councilor who allowed him to be appointed with an abstention.
Francisco Jose Cortes, the spokesperson for the Municipal Group of Citizens in Churriana City Council has released a statement denouncing the breaking of the pact that was formed with Antonio Narvaez (PP), the mayor of Churriana. This was made possible by the positive votes of his party, of the orange formation, and the abstention from Juan Antonio Yeguas, fugitive PSOE fugitive.
Already that day, the PSOE denounced the opening of an inquiry suspecting that the PP "bought wills” from the councilor who abstained. The Councilor for Festivals, Tourism and New Technologies has been appointed and will be the fourth lieutenant mayor.
Cortes has criticised Narvaez's "lackof commitment", which has prevented him from responding to negotiations that led to his appointment as mayor. "In the investiture vote the surprise jumped when a PSOE Councilor asked to do the secret vote with the intention to be able to abstain," stated the spokesperson for Cs. He also said that the mayor had indicated that he would include him into his equipment.
He pointed out that "the first words of the Mayor were to tell us he had the support from Juan Yeguas and that we did not need them, even though he was willingly to include us in government with councils but not those who signed in the agreement to consider them excessive".
Cortes wanted to stress that the pact Ciudadanos signed was not negociated and that he had communicated it to Ciudadanos. He told him that it had to be fully followed or that his municipal group would seek out the opposition to ensure compliance.
"Ciudadanos is firm in his refusal to join a government where Mr. Narvaez receives favors from a turncoat with council appointment," has stated his spokesperson, who considers it "little less that political corruption".
