The mayoral candidate, Francisco Saavedra, attributes the high participation figures in the general elections "to the fact that the population has mobilized to stop the extreme right movement that can end the social gains of the last forty years"
The Sewer PSOE makes a positive assessment on the development of the first hours of the election day.
A total of 30,193 neighbors were called to the polls and between 9 and 15 hours, according to the data collected by the PSOE in the various polling stations of the town, the percentage of participation already exceeds 50%.
"This is a record number because in the general elections of June 26, 2016, in that same time slot, only 40% of the voters had gone to the polls," as highlighted by the mayoral candidate of Alcantarilla, Francisco Saavedra.
"This high number of participation is due to the fact that the population has mobilized to stop the movement of the extreme right that can end the social gains of the last forty years," Saavedra said.
The PSOE candidate for mayor of Alcantarilla has been one of the early risers to exercise their right to vote, because after drinking a coffee with milk in the market place in front of City Hall, he has addressed the Care Center Childhood to vote at nine o'clock in the morning.
"The data that we are recording from the first hour show that the sewer company has realized the importance of this election day and everything points to it being a historic day of participation in the polls," concluded Saavedra.
The candidate is following the development of the electoral day at street level and is visiting all the polling stations of the town, together with the different members that make up his candidacy and his electoral committee.
"It's being a holiday, in a cordial and convivial atmosphere, which we hope will continue without incident."
