POLICE and Guardia Civil are investigating allegations of votes being bought by members of the Izquierda Unida party in Manilva during the recent municipal elections. The allegations were presented by the PSOE, Partido Popular and Agrupacion Socialista de Manilva, and were passed on to the authorities.
The Marbella Area Electoral Committee reports that Izquierda Unida obtained eight councillors in Manilva, although an initial report put the number at seven.
Meanwhile, Izquierda Unida has come forward to deny the accusations, and claim that the votes were obtained legally. The party has said that the other groups are trying to get them out of the town hall.
