"
"These citizens and opposition groups, real-time to verify the statement and that positions of power and can not manipulate at will the information to the public accounts of all" explains Belchí
Belchí argues that "the rights of information and citizen participation in public life appear explicitly in the Spanish legal system, including the Spanish Constitution."
The socialist council states that "the transparency index of local councils focuses on five groups that are relevant, information on the municipal corporation, public relations and society, economic and financial transparency, transparency in the procurement of services, transparency in matters of planning and public works. "
He says that "this information must be on the websites of individual local authorities to enable citizens to participate on equal terms and with knowledge of the facts on issues of particular relevance in the life of our towns."
Belchí concludes that "as Municipal Group are very hard to accomplish this task, since the PP is conducting a policy of concealment and handling all the accounts of the consistory, so it is necessary that this proposal be approved plenary. "
