Bascuñana says he “feels the love.”
One of the most significant recent developments in Orihuela’s emerging mayoral race is how the current leader, Emilio Bascuñana, now appears to be dipping his toes in the 2019 Partido Popular leadership contest.
The mayor of Orihuela, Emilio Bascuñana, said on Tuesday that he felt that he once again had the support of the Partido Popular to stand as the candidate for mayor in the municipal elections of May 2019.
In a statement to the press he said, “My party knows of my dedication and my character and I feel that I have the support of my party and the people of Orihuela to continue this work for four more years and conclude the project that we started in 2015”.
Bascuñana highlighted the work carried out by the current government team saying that he believes that Orihuela “feels satisfied with my management of the city council. I think we have given a clear example of what can be done, because stability and management have been prioritized to solve the problems of the Oriolan people before any personal ambition”.
He appealed to the Orihuela PP President Dámaso Aparicio, to whom he said that “the party that does not have diversity, discrepancies and different options, would be a poor party “.
To those who oppose his re-election he said “We must show unity to get the necessary strength, for the good of the PP, and for the good of Orihuela.”
