Elena Duque Merino, PP, has been elected today as the mayor president of Huetor Vega City Council. This is thanks to Citizens and the popular group's votes. Citizens have been part of the government team for three-years. For the past seven months, the new municipal councilor held the position by accident. Jose Garcia del Paso (number two on the Popular Party List) has formalized his voluntary resignation in order to run for the office of mayor.
This is how the Huetor Vega government team, which was led firmly by Elena Duque, conveyed the intention to give "stability to the City Council" and "seek the best for our citizens" in the remaining year. They also expressed sadness at Mariano Molina del Paso's illness, which forced him to retire from politics in March 2020. His conservatorship was established following the final ruling. This has resulted in the end of his councilor status at the Huetor Vega Town Hall. Tomas Jimenez Fernandez has taken over the office of mayor for the Popular Party's municipal group.

Elena Duque was elected president in Huetor Vega of the PP last February. She takes over Mariano Molina's position as Huetena mayor. Duque thanked Jose Manuel Prieto, his colleague, for his "selfless work" (visibly moved by Jose Garcia del Paso), when he assumed the role as accidental mayor at the time of the covid-19 epidemic. The Popular Party hosted several provincial positions at the event.
Carolina Higueras (spokesperson for the socialist municipality group) and David Vladimir Garcia Uceda (spokesperson for the IU-Equo organization), congratulated Huetor Vega's new mayor and emphasized their commitment to constructive opposition. Garcia Uceda also mentioned the inclusion of Tomas Jimenez Fernandez, a young councilor. He said, "Young blood it is what we need."
