Former mayor of Nerja, José Alberto Armijo, (1995 and 2015) was reelected as president of the town's branch of the conservative Partido Popular (PP) political party last Friday.

The meeting was attended by Malaga province's PP leader and president of the Diputación, Elías Bendodo.

Armijo will stand for mayor in the 2019 local elections.

Amid ongoing rumours of a vote of no confidence against the current mayor, Rosa Arrabal (PSOE), controversy over the town's unfinished sewage treatment plant, as well as the illegal rubbish dump at Arroyo de la Miel, Bendodo said at the meeting that the PP has been the only party that has “demonstrated its responsibility and capacity.”
