The Secretary of State for Local Authorities, Carlos Miguel, today announced the appointment of interim elections to the Castro Marim City Council on June 2, after members of the PSD / CDS-PP list resigned.
The total of the effective members and alternates that composed the list most voted in the municipal elections for the Town hall of Castro Marim, led by Francisco Amaral, resigned in February.
"This fact exhausts, definitively, the possibility of filling the vacancy of the president of said city council," said the minister, in the order published in Diário da República.
According to the law, elections must be held within a period of no less than 40 and no more than 60 days from the date of their marking, but because independent parties and the date indicated ensures "the effective exercise of the rights, freedoms and guarantees of political participation", even if this "justifies disregarding the deadlines set in the legal regulations", Carlos Miguel assumed.
Remember, Francisco Amaral, who since October 2017 has managed a minority executive, has decided to resign, similar to the other members of the list he led, to overcome this situation.
The social-democratic mayor announced his re-election and the PS also already approved the candidacy of Célia Brito, who in the last municipal elections lost only 32 votes.
Remember, the PSD / CDS-PP coalition elected two councilors, the PS also elected two councilors and the "Castro Marim Primer" movement elected only one, the former president José Estevens.
