A KEY expat property campaigner has won a seat in Albox’s local elections.

AUAN president Maura Hillen will be part of the town hall after a dominant result for the PSOE who claimed the necessary nine seats.

In Albox, 98% of foreign residents who voted were AUAN members but the overall turnout of British residents who were actually registered to vote was less than 30%.

Roughly 40% of those registered on the Padron were also registered to vote.

A poor number in comparison to neighbouring towns where registration of foreign registration is almost 100%.

“As the statistics show there is a serious gap between the foreign community resident in Albox and the town hall,” she told the Olive Press.

“This is something I hope to rectify over the next few years.

“Overall it has been a fantastic experience. My cynical old heart was warmed by the dedication, commitment and enthusiastic engagement of the Spanish community.”
