THE Popular Party emerged the clear winner in Mojacar in Sunday’s municipal election.
The party led by Rosa Maria Cano increased its absolute majority. PP won 57.67 per cent of the vote, up from 45.9 per cent in 2015. This gives the party an additional seat on the town council, taking the number of PP councillors to eight out of a total 13.
This compares with the Socialist PSOE-Somos coalition’s 39,03 per cent share of the vote, translating into five seats, also up one on four years ago. The United Left was pushed into a distant third, polling just 3.31 per cent.
Voter turnout in the Mojacar election was high, at 71.26 per cent, up from 65.3 per cent in 2015.
