Ana Millán: the acolyte mayor of Ayuso who already has her corruption case
“The name of Arroyomolinos is being stained with corruption, as has happened before with so many municipalities throughout Madrid”, explained the formation, which has demanded the resignation of the mayor and, in the event that it is not carried out Afterwards, he urges the parties that support his government (PP, Ciudadanos and PiArr) to withdraw their confidence in him.
“We all deserve a second chance, and above all our municipality deserves a new opportunity, after three consecutive mayors who have gone through the courts accused of different crimes. The opportunity to finally turn the page ”, has defended the formation.
In any case, Podemos has stressed that they will not demand “any compensation” to enter the new government and will continue, as until now, in the opposition. “Respecting Millán’s presumption of innocence, we fervently believe that legal norms are not the only ones that must be applied to public servants: we must be more demanding with politicians than with any other worker, due to their obligation to represent an entire municipality. The shadows of the mayor and her entire party become the shadow of all of Arroyomolinos, something unacceptable”, he defended.
