At the start of an election campaign, political parties are dedicated to launching their proposals, which are presented with great fanfare in their respective election programs and which are then half-baked. In the city of Albacete, the campaign focused on these searches, until a dispute over the scoreboard at the Carlos Belmonte Stadium, owned by the municipality but which had not been functioning properly for years.
The city council, under the mandate of socialist Emilio Saez, decided to temporarily hire a marker to proceed with works to replace the lighting and installation. From that moment on, the marker of the Carlos Belmonte stadium was placed at the center of the electoral campaign and statements and reactions between the Popular Party and the Socialist Party followed each other during the last days. Populares call socialists opportunists, while the latter justify their decision by the actions of the municipal government that they have carried out during the past two years. Meanwhile, Albacete Balompi in the first division of Spanish football continues in a playoff position that is ultimately necessary for the thousands of fans who fill the stands game after game but, alas, do not enjoy the scores by category -Second Division- in which Albacete Balompi currently plays. Of course, the club collects fines for bad lighting and since last season the scoreboard has not worked correctly.
If one of the star issues at the start of the election campaign is the scoreboard at the Carlos Belmonte stadium, it gives us an indication of the level of political struggle that will take place in the days remaining until the election is appointed. On 28 May. A minor issue – no matter how well Albacete Balompi is doing and thousands of members and fans flock to the stadium – it cannot attract so much attention during an election campaign. There are too many fundamental issues at stake for the city’s future to focus on electronic equipment in a municipal facility.
Citizens want to know the city project of each of the political parties in dispute or what is their formula for creating jobs in the next four years so that the well-being of families increases, to give just two examples. It is essential that political proposals take a higher approach in this election campaign and do not stay in the “bread and circuses” prevalent since ancient Rome, much less in the “and you more”, which is already used repeatedly. is done. marker case
