A FOUR-party coalition in Marbella that would see PP Mayor Angeles Munoz ousted is edging closer. 

PP Mayor Angeles Munoz could be kicked out of government

The PP narrowly missed out on a majority in last month’s elections with 13 seats, down from 15 in 2011.

The four other left-wing parties – PSOE, Opcion Sampredena (OSP), Costa del Sol Si Puede and Izquierda Unida – began negotiations on a pact immediately after the results.

Various meetings have been held, and reports state the parties are on the verge of finalising the coalition that would kick the PP out of Marbella.

Munoz ironically requires the support of OSP, an anti-corruption party, to stay in government after she herself has been mired in controversy, mostly due to an offshore bank account and a shady boundary deal with Benahavis.

Rafael Pina, of OSP, said: “We are going to see which policies we have in common with all parties, and when we have the two potential models for government we will decide what is best for Marbella and San Pedro.”

The meetings are continuing this week.
