The Municipal Socialist Group in November 2015 filed a motion on transparency with a dual purpose:
1- Meet and develop point 23 government agreement reached by the two political parties that make up the government team, and saying "Let's open the website of the City of Totana portal TRANSPARENCY where they are in real time expenses and income, works contracts and services contracts, the resolutions adopted by the governing bodies, income from municipal politicians, etc.
We want a town hall with glass walls. "
2- Meet the 80 indicators established by Transparency International as necessary for the City of Totana, a transparent institution condition.
And ask this non-governmental organization within a maximum period of two years examine this council.
This motion was passed with the votes for the PSOE and Citizen, and the abstention of IU Totana Winning and Popular Party.
Subsequently, in January of this year, the Mayor took full a motion to publish on the municipal website the amount of remuneration of the municipal corporation, which is referred to in the indicator 74 Transparency International.
The Municipal Socialist Group states that agreements are to meet them fully in its entirety, that is, to publish the salary of the entire corporation not to make a partisan use.
From the Socialist Municipal Group, we believe that restoring the credibility of institutions and elected officials, not only passes through the publication of the salaries of elected officials, but also pass by shredding all economic indices of a municipality, subsidies receiving and destiny, public contracts signed, the works tender, the status of implementation of their budgets, which invests public money from taxpayers.
This is to make an overall policy of transparency.
Likewise, in the motion filed it impinged on the commitment by all political groups not standing for election candidates marked by suspicion of corruption, to cut 500 signatures to request the referendum on issues of vital importance for the municipality since municipal accounts are audited by an independent body beginning and end of each legislature.
Finally, from the Municipal Socialist Group to be consistent with our political philosophy expressed in the government agreement, and successive motions in Parliament that develop the pact of government, we will also publish the remuneration we perceive to develop our political action the areas of Agriculture and Roads (Andrés García Cánovas), City Services (Victor Balsas Canovas) Urbanism (Carlos Ballester), Finance (Ana Canovas), Sports and Health (Isa Mill) and Human Resources (Gertrudis Ruiz).
