The demand for transparency in political and administrative action will be present at the deliberations of the municipal Plenum of Cieza.
IU-Greens defend, at its meeting of January, a motion some very concrete measures to improve the situation arising in this field, in the field of administrative contracts and the control of the government by the opposition.
José Eduardo Illueca Councilman IU-Green signed the proposal, explained at a press conference last Tuesday that "the extent of corruption has shown that the mechanisms of control over the actions of public representatives with management responsibilities are insufficient ", so that" transparency becomes a key to prevent these acts of corruption, in which the private interests of certain companies or individuals of certain subjects and devoid of scruples public office converge to get their enrichment at the expense tool to defraud the interests of citizens ".
Cieza City Council joined in September 2010, approving a proposal for IU-Greens, the statement of Principles of Good Governance of the Federation of Town, "but have not been seen in the city of Cieza, since then, significant changes on transparency, quite the contrary, it has gotten worse, as evidenced by the fact that since March, has not been opened even once, in this City, the mandatory ample opportunity for questions at the end of plenary sessions, which makes impossible any effective control of government action and, what is worse, deprives citizens to know both the content of questions to the government team as their answers and explanations. "
As recently as last November plenary, the City Council adopted a new agreement, under an amendment to popular replacement to an initiative of the CCCI, "from our point of view completely insufficient, as it is limited to a stunningly wording vague and a reference to any discussions on the Council of Elders, of which two months after we know nothing at all. "
Therefore, as Illueca explains, "it is necessary to raise again immediate measures to provide for greater transparency".
In the field of municipal contracting, "we must address at least three aspects: the award of smaller contracts, negotiated procedures without advertising and fragmentation of works of greater amount objectively unit in awarding contracts under free; is of the three areas where probably the most irregular or corrupt practices that have proliferated in recent times and fuss have occurred in citizenship when they have been known "fall.
Regarding the control of the government, "it is necessary to enable formulas for the interpellation of political groups the government team is always possible to ensure the answers and, above all, to ensure that both the content of the questions and answers is known by the public. "
Entering the specific content of the proposal raises "post already in the first quarter of 2014 the quarterly list of minor contracts requiring the transparency law, without exhausting the legal deadlines for adaptation, and to report briefly on the reasons that have been concluded with the undertakings provided that the amount of the contract exceeds 12,000 euros, in negotiated without publicity, "we want a minimum of 5 invitations are sent, unless this is impossible, and to report to the Procurement of the reasons why you selected these companies to participate in the proceeding. "The fragmentation of contracts is an irregular practice that also worries IU-Green, and might be removed shadows of suspicion" if at all potentially questionable cases, the relevant legal report was requested and report to the Board of Trade of the causes that can be considered divisible its object ".
Regarding questions and interpellations of the opposition, "would be perfectly feasible when the turn of questions and answers is not reached, the councilors of the government team will answer in writing within one week, when these had been made by written and recorded, or to be given to opposition groups the ability to formulate in writing with equal obligation to answer. "
Also requested in the motion that "all written questions and replies of the councilors of the government team are accessible to citizens on the municipal website, by enabling the corresponding section."
