Mayor accuses parties behind vote of no confidence of “spurious interests”

  • Salado has been in office twice before, once from 2005 until 2007 and later between 2011 and 2015

Current mayor of Rincón de la Victoria, Encarnación Anaya (PSOE), has accused the tripartate pact of the Partido Popular (PP), Ciudadanos and the Partido Andalucista (PA) of having “spurious interests and fear of justice” after they presented a vote of no confidence to the town council last Monday.

The tripartite pact aims to remove the current socialist mayor, whose PSOE party currently shares a coalition leadership with Ahora-Rincón Podemos. If the vote of no confidence, which is scheduled to go to the town hall’s next plenary meeting on 5 June, is passed, former mayor, Francisco Salado (PP), would be returned as the town’s leader.

Salado has been in office twice before, once from 2005 until 2007 and later between 2011 and 2015. In 2015 he received the most votes in the local elections, however a PSOE-Podemos coalition toppled him. At the heart of the vote of no confidence is the ongoing investigation into mismanagement of cleaning company EMMSA.
