The Assembly of Melilla has given the green light this Monday to the removal of Franco’s statue from the public thoroughfare, a proposal of the regional government supported by the three parties that make it up – Coalition for Melilla (CPM), PSOE and Citizens (Cs) – and the non-attached deputy and former president of Vox, Jesús Delgado Aboy.

The PP, the majority group in the regional Chamber with 10 of its 25 deputies, has abstained, and Vox, which only has one seat, has voted against.
The three parties of the regional government have celebrated with applause the approval of this proposal, with which, according to the majority party of the Executive, CPM, Melilla begins “that path towards a full democracy”, since the statue “all it did was maintain to the city frozen in the past. ”
