The PSOE of Castilla y León demanded this Thursday the resignation of the president of the Board, the popular Alfonso Fernández Mañueco, after a judge has called to declare two charges of the PP in Salamanca and the conservative formation itself as a legal person for the alleged irregular financing in the internal primaries held in 2017, in which Mañueco was the winner.
The regional socialist leader, Luis Tudanca, called his political rival an “exemplary son of PP corruption” and stated at a press conference that “corruption is at the origin of the Mañueco project.” The open cause analyzes whether prominent figures of the conservative formation in Salamanca paid about 60,000 euros to update the debts of hundreds of affiliates so that they could vote in the 2017 primaries. Mañueco, then mayor of the Salamanca capital, won this internal process to the councilor of León, Manuel Silván.
Tudanca cited this Thursday other irregularities that dot the Board, such as the wind plot, on the collection of bribes in exchange for licenses to install wind farms, or the Black Pearl case, in which the former regional president Juan Vicente Herrera must declare for cost overruns in the construction of a public building in Valladolid.
The leader of Ciudadanos en Castilla y León and vice president of the Board, Francisco Igea, expressed his support for the presumption of innocence and assured that only an indictment can be considered sufficient to confirm irregularities beyond accusations or accusations.
