Ciudadanos proposes making voting easier for foreigners

  • The motion was presented on Tuesday

Spokesperson for Ciudanandos in Fuengirola, Javier Toro, on Tuesday presented a motion to make it easier for foreign residents to vote in the European and municipal elections in May 2019.

He proposed launching an informative campaign in Spanish, as well as Finnish and English, which would run until January 2019.

According to Toro, "The administration must make sure to include all of our European residents and get them involved in our electoral system."

He also added that a number of European residents were unaware of their rights and that the language was a major obstacle.

Fuengirola has the fifth largest number of foreign residents in Europe and Toro believes that "the town hall owes it to them to make an effort".
