The inclusion of a turn and beg questions as the last item on the agenda, in which any opposition councilor can question the government team in relation to the problems of the city and its neighbors, is a legal obligation whose fulfillment should ensure the Mayor.
However, it is useless to be given formal compliance if almost never gets to that point because, as in the city of Cieza, plenary sessions end when you reach twelve o'clock without having exhausted these discussions.
According to Joseph E. Illueca complaint, a spokesman in the House of IU-Greens, "this is a situation that has dragged on since the beginning of the Corporation, which, instead of being resolved, has gotten worse."
Specifically, "the last Full Council of Cieza where you could will formulate questions and requests was for the month March, ie, there have been six ordinary plenary sessions for six consecutive months, in which it has been impossible to Opposition councilors make use of this right, essential for the performance of its oversight of the government for the democratic functioning of the organ. "
Ecosocialists councilors understand that "it is unfortunate for all that this repeat itself as continuous, not only for opposition councilors, but also for the government team and, more importantly, for the citizens, who Private sees a relevant instrument for the protection of his interests. "
The problem for Illueca deserves a joint reflection of all groups to address regulatory changes to become what is now the norm in an exception.
However, "the Mayor and government team seems unconcerned kind of a situation would be solved easily be plenary starting one hour before and avoiding unnecessary breaks in their development or sometimes call for extraordinary and compelling Plenary five minutes before time start of the regular plenary session, which inevitably delays the development of this. "
He also criticizes the limited use that the councilors have another option that the government team, "and that is the written reply to the questions raised by the opposition, in the case of IU-Greens, with few exceptions, all questions are formulated in writing and recorded before each regular plenary, but in most cases, are not answered in writing According Illueca, "the written response should be enforced when the plenary is not reached to shift. questions and answers, so they do not accumulate unanswered questions and the obligation to fulfill the government control, inherent in any democratic institution "
