THE Junta de Andalucia has demanded that the Partido Popular in Torremolinos remove billboards in which they “attack” the Andalucian government. The Junta’s delegate in Malaga, Remedios Martel, has demanded that the Partido Popular tell mayor Pedro Fernandez Montes to remove the billboards which request that the town “be paid what it is owed as a tourist area” for work carried out on the seafront.
They are referring to money owed from a grant to repair the seafront between the Bajondillo and Calle de la Playa. Some €475,000 is still owed. Although the Junta claims that Torremolinos has never provided bills to justify where the money was used.
Martel also demanded that the Partido Popular apologise to the President of the Junta de Andalucia, Jose Antonio Griñan, and the Tourism Councillor, Luciano Alonso, for naming them on the billboards located in Los Alamos, the seafront and the Albergue de la Musica roundabout.
She claimed that it was ‘political disloyalty’ to put up the billboards during the electoral campaign.
