    No it doesn’t, It will be decided between the remaining members of the party who will decide who will be mayor, Maura has said she doesnt want to be mayoress. However as the sentence hasn’t been finalised and Rogelio is appealing the sentence and resigning from the PSOE and will act as an independent mayor until the appeal has been seen and finalised.

    a little more information on the case which wasn’t mentioned in the press, Juan Pedro Quiles would in every plenary session ask for financial information sometimes from as far back as 2005, in the court case, the financial information that he has asked for, sometimes as many as 15-20 facturas a week said files were presented to show just how much he had tried to inconvenience the secretary at the town hall. Some files were hard to access and others werent not allowed to be photocopied due to the Data Protection Act. Another point to make that the Mayor was supported by 8 of the PSOE party and a member of the PP who resigned due to conflicts with Juan Pedro Quiles who testified for the Mayor, however Juan Pedro was not supported by members of his party and had his lawyer with him. Lets hope Rogelio gets the conviction overturned because there is no way in this world would I want Juan Pedro Quiles as Mayor.

      Thanks Clare! That makes sense.
      Rogelio has been mayor for most of our time here and accomplished a huge amount. The constant barrage has been painful to watch!
