Cadiz mayor in battle with Mariano Rajoy over new bridge

THE MAYOR of Cadiz is in a war of words with prime minister Mariano Rajoy over the city’s new 3,000m long bridge.

José María González claimed the town hall hadn’t been officially informed of Thursday’s official opening of the 1812 Constitution Bridge, which the PP leader is attending.

And with Manuela Carmena and Ada Colau (the mayors of Madrid and Barcelona) invited, the PCSSP is angered at the perceived slight.

“This is disloyal to the Cadiz people,” he said.

“This isn’t the PP’s bridge, the bridge has come from the citizens’ incredible efforts in a time of crisis.”
