WHAT THE NEW GREEN PARTY COUNCILLOR SAID ABOUT PEDRO MANCEBO
In a long interview in the La Verdad newspaper on 3 June, Manuel Gallud, the new Green Party big boy in the government, said that despite its minority status, the Socialist and Green Party government still had hopes of proving that they could govern well now that Pedro Mancebo, CLR party leader, had been expelled from the government. He said that if he would criticise his Green Party colleague, the Mayor, for one thing, it was that he had not thrown out Pedro Mancebo sooner. He continued, Pedro Mancebo had been responsible for rowing with Bob Houliston, who resigned from the government after 8 months, he was responsible for the rows with two other councillors from his own party, who had also left the government. Mr. Gallud concluded that Pedro Mancebo had been responsible for 18 months of confrontations and disloyalty which had cost the government dearly.
