Cesar Sanchez Ahead In Calpe Elections
WITH another general election on November 10, Calpe’s former mayor Cesar Sanchez again heads the Partido Popular’s Alicante province voting list. In Sanchez’s case, his election to the Madrid parliament is a foregone conclusion as he heads the voting list. There will also be a clear run for former astronaut Pedro Duque, currently acting Minister of Science, who occupies the first position of the PSO Esocialists’ list.
The coming elections will be preceded by an eight-day official campaign that begins on November 1, although provincial politicians are already preparing the ground for polling day. Speaking recently in Alicante, Sanchez criticised Duque, asking where he had been all these months, querying what he had done for Alicante and where were the promised increases in student grants.
