  • Francisco Santos has been sworn in after Fernando Fernández stepped down to take on a role with the Junta

Following the resignation of Fernando Fernández, Coín town hall has elected Francisco Santos Cantos as the town's new mayor. Santos was sworn in during a special plenary session held earlier this week, after Fernández stepped down to take up his new position as delegate for Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries for the Junta de Andalucía.

Santos acknowledged the support he had received from fellow councillors, promising to fulfil the role to the best of his ability.

"Over the last four years we have worked with humility, dedication and transparency, and we will continue to do this until the last day of this parliamentary term," he said.
