BENALMADENA Councillor Beatriz Olmedo has been elected as national spokesperson for Contigo Somos Democracia(Together We Are Democracy), Spain’s newest political party.
Contigo Somos Democracia are centrist, socio-liberals who have pledged to put the power back in the hands of the people.
Their website describes how Spain “needs a new social, political and ethical commitment, where people participate actively in decision-making and where their voice is really represented.”
Contigo promises to “work to build and defend an open, free, fair, egalitarian and solidary society where no one is a slave to poverty, conformism and ignorance” and describes how they “believe in the need for public authorities to play an important role in the protection of equal opportunities, as well as respect for all types of freedom of belief.”
Beatriz – who was born in 1983 and studied Labour Relations at the University of Malaga – will be joined on Contigo’s committee by some familiar faces from Benalmadena: David Almagro and Pablo Zugasti together with Bethlehem Caballero (Rincon de la Victoria), Daniel Salcedo (Mijas) and Julio Gonzalez (Malaga) from the Costa del Sol.
