Manuel Gomez frontrunner to become new San Fulgencio Mayor

After seven years as the San Fulgencio mayor, Carlos Ramírez finally resigned his position at last Wednesday morning’s Plenary having previously been disqualified from holding public office   for a crime of prevarication, although the sentence of the Orihuela Criminal Court has been appealed before the Provincial Court.

Councilor Susana Ortuño  assumes the office of mayor until a new plenary session is held when the councillors will elect the new mayor of the municipality.

For the last 6 months the ruling body has been formed by five councilors who were all expelled from the Partido Popular, along with Ramírez, together with a councillor from the UPyD.

Following the announcement councillor Manuel Gomez, the one PP councillor who has not been expelled from the party, said he will now try to form a municipal government, but he has asked for the support of his 5 dissident colleagues, stating that he will not take the reins without their backing.

Negotiations will take place during the next week or so with a final decision being taken at the next Plenary session.
