The Socialist parliamentary group spokesman Retegui Begoña García and the former mayor and current City spokesperson Moratalla Socialist Juan Llorente, have come out against the ongoing accusations People's Party of the municipality towards the management of the previous socialist government team in the consistory .
As explained García Llorente Retegui and the worrying economic situation in the City of Moratalla is a result of management's Party ahead of the session: "Of those mud, sludge. The popular Moratalla can not escape their responsibility and look away, because the Socialist Party received a council with an unsustainable economy. "
Retegui Garcia has expressed concern not only the situation of the City of Moratalla, but by the overall regional economic situation and the lack of "tension" of the regional government: "At this point we see no tension in the regional executive. We a very complicated situation with budgets closed, thousands of suppliers remain unpaid, more than 2,000 million of debt and municipalities are now creditors of the regional government can not continue to maintain basic services for non-payment of the Autonomous ".
"Employment, tourism, local development, social policy, equality, police. Are some of the services provided by local councils under the responsibility of regional government, being impossible to maintain. The regional government not only maintains a debt municipalities, has also reduced the amounts for multiple services offered by the local consistory. "
"The situation is extremely serious," said García Retegui who said that "when we go through in the Region of Murcia in tension would require a government and making decisions, not a government semivacaciones, which makes many statements but not decisions to correct this situation. "
García Retegui deplored that the regional government also has tried unevenly socialist municipalities sign: "Remember that in October 2009, the City Council received millions of euros Santomera to meet the current expenditure while the PP from other municipalities, as in the case of Moratalla, voted against the government's resources to reach the regional council, who suffered the same economic strangulation that the City of Santomera but it was socialist. "
Cynical and irresponsible

The popular cynicism rub with the avalanche of statements to local media, regional and national "
"In the stage from 2000 to 2007 was Mr. García Rodríguez, the current mayor, who borrowed the Town Hall at 10 million euros to rule in a time of economic boom. He had extraordinary income of planning agreements, building permits and sales of assets up to 7 million euros and are spent. When we come together as a team of government that money was no longer in the City, "said Llorente.
"In addition to expanded from 80 to 138 the workers of the City, untenable in times of crisis. He caused an unsustainable situation in the consistory of Moratalla coming to ask banks to EUR 9 million at the time, so that at the stage of socialist government could not go into debt with these any entity. "
"The ultimate responsibility for the situation which is now the City is the PP of Moratalla. The only thing that has made these 2 months of government is to throw balls out, blaming the previous government and not solve anything. They will do an audit four years of socialist rule but do not make the two terms they devoted to wasting money moratalleros "he concluded.
