ORIHUELA COSTA: deserves a stronger voice in the Orihuela City Council Photo credit: Concejalia de Infrastructura, Orihuela
ORIHUELA politician Peter Houghton recently said that much of what he said a few years ago still stands.
“Not only the city council is fighting each other, but the Partido Popular (PP) and Ciudadanos parties have internal battles to fight,” said Peter, spokesman for the new Partido Independencia Orihuela Costa (PIOC) party.
“The crucial votes of PSOE, Cambiemos and Ciudadanos recently ousted then-mayor Emilio Bascunana and the PP, installing a new mayor and a new coalition,” he pointed out.
“It remains to be seen how this affects Orihuela Costa’s future,” said Peter.
“Orihuela Costa should and must forge its own future, but we need advisers from the coast to make sure the region gets a fairer share of the budget, not just the leftovers.
Peter explained that PIOC supports both independence and integration, uniting the coast to speak with one voice.
He just needs to make sure everyone who is eligible to vote does so in May 2023, he said.
“No more sitting on the fence,” he said. “If you don’t vote, don’t complain. More votes means more advisors, it’s as simple as that.
“Every vote counts, every vote counts, so vote to make a difference.” insisted Peter. “Vote for the independence of Orihuela Costa.”
