DON’T RISK LOSING IT ALL – VOTE IN THE REFERENDUM ON UK MEMBERSHIP OF THE EUROPEAN UNION Orihuela Costa’s political party C.L.A.R.O. was founded 10 years ago on the principle that exercising the right to vote was a legitimate, democratic and essential way to defend our interests in relation to the local government of Orihuela.   We think the same principle applies in relation to the 23 June referendum on the United Kingdom’s continuing membership of the European Union. The recent headline in an influential local newspaper “YOU COULD LOSE IT ALL” was…

ORIHUELA COSTA – WHAT IS RELEVANT AND IMPORTANT? The politicians and political parties in Orihuela don't get it. They cannot appreciate what is important for Orihuela Costa and what is not.

They were concerned that the flames could spread to nearby houses. 40 minutes later a fire engine appeared. In the meantime, the…

DON’T DIVIDE ORIHUELA COSTA The political groups in Orihuela are considering a new Regulation on Citizens Participation in the governance of Orihuela. It sounds like a good idea and indeed there are elements being studied which would have advantages for the residents of Orihuela.But as far as Orihuela Costa is concerned, it is of secondary importance and because it could involve the division of Orihuela Costa into different districts, it could have implications which would be definitely negative. It…

DEMONSTRATION ON 12 DECMEBER TO PROTEST DELAY IN COMPLETING EMERGENCY SERVICES CENTRE The shell of a partially completed Emergency Services Centre behind Consum supermarket, near the La Zenia Roundabout, has stood for several years now as a symbol of the neglect of the interests of Orihuela Costa by the local government of Orihuela and the regional and provincial governments.
