The socialist spokesman believes that "the cases we are aware of show that we are facing a strategy planned and continued over time by the PP, which should not rely on its policy because it prefers to convince the citizen by exchanging votes for work"
For the spokesman of the Municipal Socialist Group, José Antonio Serrano, "it is already amply demonstrated that for the PP the citizen is only one vote every four years, who tries to tie up by offering him work in return."
These statements arise as a result of the news published about the imputation of the former pediatrician of El Raal for alleged purchase of votes.
"We are not facing the first suspicion or the first case, but in the City of Murcia, under the Government of the PP, we are facing a planned and branched strategy that even Mayor Ballesta is aware of. Just remember that he was present when the Roque Ortiz case jumped, which evidenced the purchase of votes during a meeting in which he urged his comrades in districts to remind people who had given them the job, "says Serrano.
The spokesman, who is "shocked at the seriousness of these events", points out that "we cannot consent that all the management of the City of Murcia, the seventh municipality of Spain, which administers more than 430,000 neighbors, is in doubt or that put all the politicians in the same bag ", and insists that" the PP cannot subject the City Council to a continuous shadow of clientelistic network ".
For Serrano "this is not the strategy of a single person a single day, this is a consolidated procedure and continued in time," in fact, last week another case was known that is in the courts and that points to the former councilor Cristóbal Blacksmith, who had allegedly made finger contracts for 700,000 euros.
Therefore, the socialist spokesman argues that "everything published proves us right and confirms that each case we know is not a day's flower but a planned and orchestrated maneuver on a large scale and with the approval of the same mayor."
In addition, he explains that "client networks continue to differentiate citizenship by adhering or not to a political party, limiting the freedom of thought and opinion to which all people are entitled."
Serrano says that "I am convinced that the PP should not rely much on the power of conviction of its policy or its projects, which should be designed to increase the well-being of all citizens, and therefore prefers to go the middle way by exchanging votes for work ".
Therefore, the socialist spokesman is committed to the conclusion of the Commission for the Investigation of Large Contracts, where the PSOE will require exhaustive information, not only of the fulfillment of the contracts, but also of the templates of the concessionary companies, since "I am convinced that only with transparency can we avoid any attempt at favoritism or abuse of power.
