Municipal spokesman Fortuna socialists, Alonso Ruiz, and general secretary of the municipality PSOE, José Enrique Gil, bemoan a "mayor sentenced seconded by the PP in the region has damaged the prestige of Fortune"
PSRM general secretary, Rafael González Tovar, has called this afternoon at a press conference Valcárcel's resignation as president of the regional PP, and "the accused" Miguel Ángel Cámara, as secretary general of the party, for having supported the mayor Fortuna, Matias Carrillo, though Justice had condemned for buying votes in the 2003 elections, instead of forcing him to resign.
González Tovar said that "there are no words to define the embarrassment we feel the Murcia before contemptible and despicable behavior of the PP mayor convicted of Fortuna, which is already proven, and sanctioned by the Justice-took advantage of the good faith and the needs of many fortuneros to buy their votes with promises food stamps and public employment. "
In this regard, the city spokesman of the Socialists of Fortuna, Alonso Ruiz, explained that so far the mayor of Fortuna bought votes in exchange for vouchers redeemable for food or diapers "taking advantage of the need for some residents of the municipality, which shows I was not in politics to help the citizens but by all cost occupy his seat in the hall "
For his part, Secretary General of the PSOE in Fortuna, Jose Enrique Gil, said that it was a sad day for the town and that such actions are what make citizens feel more out of politics: "Still the Socialist Party will continue to work for and Fortuna as we have always done and we want these facts do not happen again in our people. "
Explicit support CP
González Tovar, for crimes Carrillo who pose "an unacceptable mockery of democracy and all citizens of Fortuna and the Region", does not understand how the two heads of the PP in the region, Valcárcel and House, "was allowed to return to stand for mayor in the last election, and was once accused by the Justice for acts committed in 2003, which is a support rather than explicit. "
"Nor-means-Tovar said that a few months later, when Carrillo was sentenced by the District Court, did not resign as mayor on the grounds of the mayor had appealed against the ruling to the Supreme. In this case, as in others - no further than the House itself, which is also charged-People's Party does not meet even its own constitution, which is supposed to force open an information package to militants accused, and disciplinary proceedings that are brought to to trial. "
For González Tovar, Matias Carrillo's sentence is particularly serious because it shows that the Popular Party won the municipal elections less fraudulently, cheating, and the result was an illegitimate mayor, with all the negative consequences that this has taken in recent years to the town of Fortuna and its people, for democracy, and for the credibility of the Partido Popular.
And is that this illegal practice of PP has been denounced by the PSOE on many occasions and in many municipalities in the region.
"And now it has been shown in court that, at least in Fortuna, has been, and Justice has condemned and banned the PP mayor."
"In addition, they took advantage of Carrillo bought votes has another effect, and is also able to benefit Valcárcel votes to the regional PP," insisted the socialist leader, who reiterated the request for resignation of Valcárcel and Chamber "by this big scandal so embarrassed because we all Democrats.
