ELECTIONS 2015: COMPROMIS LAUNCHES MANIFESTO FOR A NEW PROJECT FOR JAVEA
COMPROMÍS revealed their manifesto in an opening rally in the Plaça de l'Església on Friday evening, pledges that have been outlined in their glossy leaflet which is now available online. Unlike those of José Chulvi's PSOE and Oscar Antón's XD-CPJ Coalition, the manifesto has been published in Castellano and Valenciano only, which suggests that Compromís, headed by mayoral candidate Vicent Colomer, doesn't see the ex-pat vote as important enough to explain their ambitions for the town in English, despite the fact that the foreign community currently makes up half of the population of Xàbia. Therefore javeamigos.com has tried to decipher the pledges and we outline the key issues in the link below.

ELECTIONS 2015: HOW TO VOTE
The electoral system used for the local elections is the “party-proportional representation” system in which the voter opts for his party of preference and the party then wins a certain number of seats on the council that reflects their proportional share of the total vote. In Jávea, it only needs around 450 votes to gain one seat on the council. This is our rough guide on how to vote in the forthcoming municipal elections on Sunday 24th May and have a say in the future of our town.

Two goals from Bertó, a penalty from Santafe and an equaliser from Rubén Ortolá salvaged a point for CD Jávea. Next week - away at Catarroja CF.
