Valle Gran Rey:
Angel Piñero has been elected mayor of this municipal area on La Gomera last Saturday. His Coalicion Canaria party came out strongest in the recent local elections, winning four of the eleven seats on the local council but unable to gain a majority. However, his candidature was supported by all but the two Si Se Puede councillors and it now appears he will form a minority local government with the support of most elected councillors.
The other 5 municipal mayors on La Gomera were elected as follows:
San Sebastian de La Gomera:
Now ruled by the new socialist party ASG (6 seats) in coalition with Antonio Luis Arteaga of Nueva Canarias (1 seat) with Adasat Reyes of the ASG as mayor.
Emiliano Coello of the ASG elected mayor with absolute majority held by the ASG.
Rosa Chinea (ASG) is new mayor, also with absolute majority of the seats held by her party.
Pedro Negrín of CC (2 seats) elected mayor, forming local government in coalition with ASG (2 seats) and PSOE (1seat). Former mayor Solveida Clemente's party is now in opposition with four seats.
Manuel Ramón Plasencia of the Spanish Labour Party PSOE managed to go against the trend on La Gomera, now being the only mayor to be re-elected with his party gaining an absolute majority of the seats.
