Andaluces Levantaos, who had requested that Macarena Olona’s mobile phone and her correspondence be investigated to determine her real location between the dates she registered at the end of November 2021 and until the elections were called last April, has to decide now if she resorts to a last instance before the Constitutional Court or gives up her efforts and closes a chapter that leaves the way clear for the leader of the extreme right to be able to be a candidate. However, the ex officio annulment of her registration initiated by the City Council of Salobreña (Granada) has yet to be resolved.

This is the last step in a case that broke out on May 13 when the former president of Vox Granada, Manuel Martín, assured before the Being Chain that Macarena Olona had registered in one of her homes in the municipality of Salobreña to be able to attend the Andalusian elections. That she had done it without a contract and without it being possible to say that she lived “regularly” in this address that is located a few meters from the headquarters of the company that Martín has as a hotelier. That caused Andaluces Levantaos to challenge Olona’s candidacy in the first instance before the Electoral Board of Granada, although it was decided that the leader of the extreme right met the requirements to be able to present herself.

At the same time, as a result of Martín’s statements and in the face of the stir generated by an alleged “fraud of law” in the registration of Macarena Olona, ​​the City Council of Salobreña officially annulled her registration in the municipal census and opened a period of allegations to resolve if the Alicante policy is correctly registered or not. Although Olona has presented evidence of it, as confirmed by the Consistory, a final decision has not yet been adopted in this regard.

no room for maneuver

However, after failing the first challenge before the Electoral Board of Granada, Andaluces Levantaos had tried this Friday to demand again that the presence of Macarena Olona in the Salobreña municipal register be investigated. On this occasion, in addition to considering that the leader of Vox in Andalusia does not usually live in this town on the Costa Tropical, as the Local Police considered in the report by which the City Council annulled her registration ex officio, the party requested the contentious-administrative justice to review his location and his correspondence, confident that they were irrefutable evidence. Despite this, as confirmed by Andaluces Levantaos, the court has rejected this possibility.

It should be remembered in turn that Macarena Olona has filed a complaint against the mayor of Salobreña, María Eugenia Rufino (PSOE), for an alleged crime of “prevarication” by annulling her registration ex officio, considering that it has been a political exercise that was not has suited the right. Judicial sources, consulted by this means, affirm that this complaint has a difficult procedural route for the interests of Olona since she has presented it before the process of ex officio removal from the municipal register has ended.

In any case, after the second challenge by Andaluces Rivantaos of the candidacy of the leader of Vox failed, the deadline to claim before new instances ends this Sunday without the party having made a decision on the matter. From Andaluces Levantaos they admit the possibility of presenting an amparo appeal before the Constitutional Court, but they are in a process of reflection to decide if this new path can really prosper, since the previous two have not done so.

Be that as it may, it seems that Macarena Olona’s path to the Andalusian elections on June 19 is practically clear, despite the fact that there are indications that her registration was not correct and that justice has been based on the fact that the administrative act was firm for the Electoral Board of Granada and the contentious administrative has understood that the second challenge was already out of time.
