DESPITE great pressure from the United Left (IU) to step down from her post, Antonia Muñoz has announced her intention to continue to continue on as mayor of Manilva.
She has, however, agreed to cut ties with the coalition. Joining her in leaving the party are her six councilors, who support the mayor’s decision to remain in office. They will exist as an independent political group.
This separation is meant to distance the IU from the recent allegations against Muñoz, who has reportedly been employing illegal hiring practices.
Muñoz has not yet announced whether she will be running for reelection.
