The head of the list to the Congress of Deputies by the PSRM, María González Veracruz, has reiterated its belief that citizens deserve a law of political transparency, "because citizens are entitled to know the activities of political representatives and hold them accountable it "and has reprimanded the regional PP refusal to support such a rule" because it would force them to condemn acts such as buying votes or the transgression by their mayors. "
Veracruz Gonzalez made the remarks during his visit to the town of Fortuna, which still governs recalled a mayor convicted of graft and vote buying in the municipal elections of 2003: "Fortune is an example of what can not be in politics. No citizens can trick or coerce the political bosses so right to vote because this is an attack on democracy that can not emerge unscathed. "
In line with the condemnation of the current mayor of Fortuna by graft and vote buying, the number one said Congress "is an example of the mode of the Partido Popular regional and national level as well, trying to bury the case political corruption of their political representatives to the shame of decent citizens. "
He recalled that the regional PP has gone a step further in that line to oppose a transparency law, coming into conflict with Rajoy, who said a few days ago that he would support the project.
"A demonstration of the incoherence of a party that does not know what to do with the more than 30 high charges and / or convicted in corruption and fraud that has in this region."
According to González Veracruz, "we need greater control by citizens in the functioning of institutions and representatives who run them. This will avoid cases such as Fortuna and there will be a greater ability to react to them and contribute to policy work to regain public trust, "he said.
"Our candidate Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba leading this call for transparency to which we join all socialists. PP If you prefer to hide information from citizens, the Socialist Party will not endorse this course of action back to the Spanish," he said.
