Four towns of the Axarquía, pending agreements

Four towns of the Axarquía, pending agreements

Peláez / E. Cabezas. At 24 hours for the constitution of the Malaga city councils for the next legislature, there are still four municipalities in the Axarquía region where it is not clear who will be the new mayor until 2023: Alcaucín, Almáchar, Arenas and Cómpeta. In contrast, in another six, in which there were no political forces with absolute majorities on 26M, the picture is clear. Algarrobo, as it advanced yesterday this newspaper, has been the last one in which the pact that will be in front of the Town Hall has been revealed. There the PSOE candidate, Alberto Pérez Gil, will repeat at the Mayor thanks to the support of Cs, leaving the PP in opposition.

Benamargosa has also been clarified this week. The PSOE regains the Mayor's Office with the support of IU. The new alderman will be Salvador Arcas. Moclinejo has been another of the municipalities in which the future municipal government has been cleared. Also in this case, the Socialists will recover the Mayor's Office thanks to a pact with Por Mi Pueblo and Adelante Moclinejo-IU. In Vélez-Málaga he will continue as the socialist mayor Antonio Moreno Ferrer, after an agreement with the GIPMTM. They both add 14 councilors. In Rincón de la Victoria, Francisco Salado will also be re-elected with the support of PMP, Cs and Vox. And in Nerja, José Alberto Armijo will recover t

In Almáchar, the three groups that have obtained representation (PSOE, with 4; IU, also with 4, and PP, with one) are all talking to everyone. Arenas also has the negotiations blocked. The PP as the most voted force (four councilors) tries to reach an agreement with both IU (3) and the PSOE (2), formations that are also negotiating with each other and with the popular ones independently, but without any results. In Alcaucín the contacts do not advance. PSOE and Citizens, with four councilors each, aspire to the Mayor, as the PP, with two coun

In Cómpeta, where the PP is the most voted force with four councilors and only needs the support of one of the other three groups that make up the corporation (PSOE, three councilors, PMP, two, and Cs, two), neither have produced advances. The popular candidate, Obdulio Pérez, insists that the mayor corresponds to the PP, as the most voted force, so he does not accept the proposals to assign the position or share it, as some formations have proposed.
