This has been expressed today the coordinator of IU-Greens in the Region of Murcia, José Antonio Pujante, in a press conference in which also involved the spokesman of that political organization in Fortuna, Salvador Alarcón, and IU-lawyer Joaquin Green Dólera to assess the judgment of the Supreme Court confirming the conviction for election.
Pujante indicated that the PP regional president has maintained a "political responsibility" with Carrillo, and pointed out that the purchase of votes by the latter took place in a year in which local and regional elections held, and consequently " party of power "Valcárcel" was based on an illegitimate and illegal. "
"Valcárcel has to make a self-criticism and now send the head of communications of his party to throw balls out, it has to be that of the face, clearly say he was wrong and apologize less if you do not want to be responsible all the terms of what is clearly raised the TS ".
Also considered that Carrillo's performance by buying votes "is an obvious attack against democracy", so if the president of the region "have some respect, you have to do is to apologize" .
Meanwhile, Joaquin Dólera, has started his speech by paraphrasing a Cuban song that says "Fun's over, came and he commanded justice," said the ruling confirms that the TS commanded an absolute majority of Carrillo " began as a fraudulent ".
Dólera has also emphasized that the decision "comes to agree with him that for nine years has been raising both political and legal IU alone because, although now no lack brides this victory, even with the PSOE councilors who went to court to testify said not remember or do not know anything about it. "
"But this alone allows us to savor this victory and political justice not alone, but accompanied by the whole society of Fortuna", she added the lawyer.
Has described as "fair" although he qualified that statement is "benevolent" with Carrillo because "while recognizing that committed an electoral offense, which is a fraud and a kidnapping of popular sovereignty, does not give rise to the offense of trespass accuse us of that. "
And, as explained Dólera, TS does not rule out the case of corruption, but the District Court found that the variety comisiva was already included in the electoral offense, which did not go to the Supreme, who did Carrillo hinting that there could be transgression committed by the comisiva.
Salvador Alarcon, who has appeared on the same terms and Dólera Pujante, has welcomed the decision and insisted that "confirms the important end of the thesis and our private prosecution" shows the trickery with which Fortuna's PB got its first absolute majority. "
As for the political responsibilities, Alarcón said that "we are waiting for the Minister José Ballesta, that campaign was to Fortuna to say that the mayor would take 3,000 or 4,000 votes of fortuneros the audience to prove your innocence, ask publicly apologize for democratic outrage so great. "
