FUENGIROLA town hall is one of the most transparent in the country according to new research.
Transparency International, an organisation which aims to stamp out government corruption, found the city to be more open than many provincial capitals including Huesca and Granada.
The study was broken up into different sections including economic, financial, planning and public works transparency, with Fuengirola achieving an overall score of 88.8 out of 100.
Fuengirola Mayor Esperanza Ona said he hopes the new data will silence corruption claims from the Socialist Party.
“After years of attacking the issue, these magnificent results publicly recognise that we have one of the most transparent municipalities in Spain.”
A 2012 study by the same organisation found that over half of public information requests made in Spain go unanswered, and only 20% of answered requests provided the correct information.
