Penalva: "In the City of Cieza opposition has trouble controlling government action" (10/12/2013)

Municipal spokesman for IU-Green recalls that the last 24 Plenary only 10 have reached the ample opportunity for questions, which is a "violation of democracy."

The spokesman for IU-Greens in the city of Cieza, Antonio Penalva, has made a damning assessment of the possibility of exercising control work of municipal government by the opposition is not reached in most regular full point question and answer, a fact very serious since "transparency eliminates the management of any democratic government must lead."

According Penalva, "in the last two years have held 24 ordinary plenary, where is included as the last item on the agenda, the ample opportunity for questions, which is by no means secondary to the rest of the matters discussed, as it is, or should be, one of the main mechanisms available to municipal opposition groups to control municipal management. "

Of those 24 Plenary, "only it has been 10 times the ample opportunity for questions, leaving unattended questions from opposition councilors fourteen times as well, as of today, the local group of IU-Greens has yet to answer questions and registered in September 2013. "

In the words of eco-socialist mayor, "is very unfortunate for all, including the municipal government, that this repeat itself as continuous, but it is even worse than no attempt was made to correct the situation but, on the contrary, worse with certain actions by the Mayor as to convene in extraordinary and compelling Plenary times five minutes before the start time of the regular plenary session, which inevitably delays the development of it, that is what happened, for example, on 2 December, the date on which the plenary ended with the last four points of the agenda without debate, partly as a result of this delay. "

He also criticizes the limited use that the council of the government team "have another option and that is the written response to questions posed by the opposition, in the case of IU-Greens, with few exceptions, all questions formulated in writing and recorded before each regular plenary, and yet, in most cases are not answered in writing, but is that the answer should be written mandatory plenary sessions when you do not get to turn question and answer, not to accumulate unanswered questions and are satisfied, even minimally, the right of the opposition. "

In this regard, accurate Penalva their municipal group "filed a brief for mayor listing the questions that remained outstanding defense in the regular full October and requesting his written reply, the result can not be poorer: the five pending answers, council officials have given effect to only two, which shows the unwillingness of transparency with which the municipal government is facing his administration. "

In short, "once reality contrasted with objective facts and given the trend of the last two years, we must find an effective solution to this problem that seriously undermines the validity of the democratic principle in the institutional operation of our City, and something to be made by consensus and unanimous by all local groups of the Corporation.
