THE CLARO party, based on the Orihuela Costa has announced it will contest the next municipal elections in Orihuela as an independent party, without entering into pre-election alliances or agreements with any other party or group.
Councillor and party president, Bob Houliston said: “CLARO’S experience in an electoral alliance in 2011 with the Centro Liberal Renovador (CLR) party was disastrous and its experience later of an agreement with the Popular Party of Orihuela was equally disappointing.”
Previous experiences have convinced the party that CLARO must fight the forthcoming election entirely on its own.
Bob added: “CLARO is a local party born of the need to correct injustices and unfairness in the government of Orihuela Costa. We are a democratically run party without political ideology. The first initials of our name stand for Closeness to the People and Honesty.
“Our task in Orihuela Costa has been to create, in a diverse, multinational population, a political consciousness and determination to participate in local government.
“In response to the many people worried by the present fragmented and uncertain political situation in Orihuela, CLARO will offer to the voters in May the promise that we will work for change, fairness and efficiency on behalf of all those living in the municipality.”
