RIVAL political leaders have descended on the Costa del Sol to visit flood-struck communities.
Susana Diaz, president of the Andalucia Junta and regional PSOE general secretary, Juanma Moreno, president of PP Andalucia and Antonio Maillo, left wing IU Andalucia head, have all announced visits today.
They are coming to assess damage caused by the devastating weekend floods that claimed the lives of two people.
Diaz is currently at the Plaza del Toros in Marbella, with visits to Estepona, San Roque and La Linea planned for later in the day.
She will meet victims, emergency workers and town hall staff at Estepona’s Centro de Salud at 12.30pm, before heading to the San Roque station for 2pm and La Linea for 4pm.
Moreno will go to Cartama’s la Barrlada Dona Ana at 12.30pm before moving onto the Arroyo Vaquero urbanisation in Estepona at 2.15pm with Malaga PP president Elias Bendodo.
Maillo is currently meeting with Pepe Carrasco, the Casares mayor, before heading to Estepona later this afternoon.
Last night, Juan Ignacio Zoido, the central government’s interior minister, came to Malaga to visit the flood emergency headquarters.
King Felipe VI has not visited but has been in contact with a number of town leaders.
