  • Ciudadanos and PSOE now have an absolute majority guaranteed until the next municipal election in May next year

The two ruling parties on Mijas council have added the all-important support of the one councillor belonging to the Podemos party to secure a pact to bring stability to the town hall until the end of the current legislature in May next year.

The socialist PSOE party and centrist Ciudadanos run the council but don’t have an overall majority. Now, with the vote of the CSSP-Podemos councillor, they can get budgets approved and other changes through a council vote with a majority. The parties recently signed a three-way deal document with 28 points.

Among the initiatives agreed to is an office to support the local LGBT community and a relaunch of the closed CIOMijas hospitality school.
