Calpe mayor stands aside

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - NEWS - By Jack Troughton

POLITI­CIAN Ce­sar Sanchez is to stand aside as mayor of Calpe to con­cen­trate on his du­ties as pres­i­dent of the Ali­cante pro­vin­cial govern­ment.

He was first elected to the helm of the Ma­rina Alta town in 2011 and re­tained the post as mayor fol­low­ing the 2015 lo­cal elec­tions; how­ever, in re­cent months com­bin­ing both roles has be­come in­creas­ingly dif­fi­cult and Mr Sanchez, a mem­ber of the con­ser­va­tive Par­tido Pop­u­lar, will not seek a third term as mayor.

End­ing spec­u­la­tion about fu­ture roles within the town hall, the PP con­firmed the move on Tues­day. An an­nounce­ment about who will suc­ceed Mr Sanchez at the head of the party list and as mayor elect is ex­pected soon.
