The residents of Carmenes del Mar have invited the Andalusian president, Juanma Moreno, to spend a few days of his summer holidays in the urbanisation to remind him of his promise to carry out emergency works to reduce the risk of further harm to the homes and residents of Carmenes del Mar.
The home owners want to remind Moreno that in February 2016 his political party the PP, who were then in opposition, tabled a resolution to the Andalucian Parliament that asked for emergency repairs to Carmenes del Mar. The non-binding resolution, supported by the PP, Ciudadanos and Podemos, was approved. Four years later Moreno's party now governs Andalucia, and the Carmenes residents wonder if an issue that he once claimed was "a matter of justice" was merely a cynical political ploy to unseat the PSOE in Andalucia.
"Our houses continue to fall down and the administration continues doing nothing to secure the safety of the home owners, and residents are outraged to learn that the President of the Junta de Andalucía has had time to visit Aquatropic in Almuñécar to spend a day with his family, but he has not had time to call us”, say Ricardo López and Dolores García, spokespersons for the residents of Cármenes del Mar.
