THE Mojacar Positiva Se Mueve party is calling for the District Electoral Board to keep a close eye on postal votes.
Party leader, Jessica Simpson, insists citizens are already seeing irregularities in the build up to the May elections.
“We believe the Board should put procedures in place to ensure that the democratic system is enforced and respected,” she explained.
“In past elections the scale of postal votes in Mojacar, Almeria, has been suspicious.”
In 2007 postal votes accounted for 12.6 per cent of the total in Mojacar – where 70 per cent of the population are foreign residents – far exceeding the national average of less than three per cent.
Moreover, nearly 90 per cent of the previous postal votes were all for the PP.
It follows similar accusations by PSOE candidate Manuel Zamora that local residents have reported receiving offers from certain political parties in exchange for their postal votes.
