PSOE and Asamblea Ciudadana Portuense (ACP) have reached an agreement to reissue the government pact signed four years ago, in order to offer stability to the municipal institution and give new impetus to the policies that have been developed in the city. Thanks to the progress agreement reached, Marco González will continue to be the mayor of Puerto de la Cruz in the 2023-2027 term, with the support of the ACP, headed by David Hernández.
After the conversations held by the respective negotiating teams, the Socialist Party and the Portuense Citizen Assembly have reached an agreement both at the programmatic level and in relation to the distribution of responsibility for the different areas of the City Council. The sum of the ten councilors obtained by the PSOE and the two obtained by the ACP in the elections of May 28 offers the city government a reinforced majority compared to the previous term, which will be reflected in the vote that will take place this Saturday in the constitutive session of the new municipal corporation.
Over the course of next week, the document containing the programmatic agreement between the two formations will be made public, which consolidates the government action that over the last four years successfully faced the most serious tourist crisis in the history of the city, caused by by the global pandemic, and which, as a result of the coordinated work of the two political forces, has offered very favorable results in terms of employment, public and private investment, and improvement of public services.
With this pact, therefore, it is intended to reinforce and develop the line of work deployed up to now, open to the participation of citizens and the different groups of the city and endorsed with a comfortable majority at the polls, with the aim of continuing offering tools for progress that allow Puerto de la Cruz to face the challenges that lie ahead, improving the life and well-being of the society of Puerto de la Cruz and the hundreds of thousands of people who visit the municipality each year.
