Cartagena citizens want to clarify that, contrary to what has been published in some media, we have not reached any agreement for the creation of neighborhood councils of Cartagena, or the People's Party, or the Socialist Party-Movement block citizen.
We will divide up chairs and armchairs with anyone.
That belongs to the old policy, a policy that prefers reaching power at any price.
Citizens has followed this pattern in the last regional elections, which has not been part of any government team, and neither will the neighborhood councils in Cartagena.
If you do not have enough support to chair the neighborhood councils exert a labor of sensible and constructive opposition.
Moreover, while the PP will continue to govern with defendants in Mazarrón, and keep as mayor of Torre Pacheco Josefa Marin Otto, charged for an alleged case of corruption, citizens did not provide, or his vote, or his abstention, the presidency the Popular Party in the neighborhood councils of Cartagena despite being the most voted.
Our decision, the only possible on consciousness has been postularnos to chair the neighborhood councils where we have representation.
"In any case we will 'play' to divide up the chairs as if they were playing cards, or the PP or the PSOE-block Movimiento Ciudadano" said Councilman Citizen Cartagena, Alfredo Nieto.
Cartagena citizens think that the only sensible option and consistent with our understanding of politics is postularnos to chair the meetings.
If we do not receive enough support to preside, we will exercise a sensible and constructive opposition as we have been doing since we entered the city of Cartagena.
Who enables the government in a municipality or a neighborhood council presidency is the voter.
We would have liked to have enough electoral support to implement our electoral program in Cartagena and start implementing attitude of dialogue and consensus, but so far it has not been possible.
