The Mayor of Orihuela, Emilio Bascañuna of the Partido Popular, has announced the roles his government will play for the next four year administration.

As well as mayor, he himself will take on the urbanism department as well as security, but the all important councillor of the coast and international residents will be a role filled by Sofía Álvarez, a coastal resident, who will also take on the departments of tourism and urban transport.
