|Beffa and Gallego|
railed against the situation in a document presented to the press at the hotel, warning -if not threatening- that things could change dramatically if political rights are not respected.
Regarding the change of rules that Ruiz is working on, Beffa says that "they want to change them because San Pablo did not support them (PP) in the elections." He admits that the PSOE lost the elections in Jimena but it was "the most voted list in San Pablo." The current law states that the Junta de Distrito must be established and duly constituted within 45 days of the main Council being sworn in, which took place over three months ago.
Beffa added that "there are recordings" of a converstaion with Ruiz in which he, Beffa, is told that he would never be president of the Junta, which ignores the rules completely.
For her part, Sandra Gallego, who says she has been a member of the PP for many years, also criticized Mayor Ruiz. She, too, demands that the Junta be sworn in immediately. She sits on the un-established Junta but did not figure on the list at the elections, her place being set at the previous local elections four years ago.
In fact Sandra Gallego is no longer a member of the PP, from which she resigned when the local bosses decided she would not go on the electoral list for the elections held on May 20.
