THE “Bloc” coalition which forms part of the ruling government team on Palma City Council claimed yesterday that the feasibility of the multi-party pact has come to an end.

Eberhard Grosske, Bloc spokesman and Citizen Welfare Councillor is demanding that Mayor Aina Calvo dismiss three Majorcan Unionist (UM) councillors - Mique Nadal, Cristina Cerdo, and Baldomero Oliver. His call comes after a City Council Policy Board meeting yesterday, in which it was decided that Nadal, who is allegedly involved in a property corruption scandal, need not leave his post.

Grosske claims that the decision has broken a clearly defined code of ethics whereby any politician who is tainted with suspicion of involvement in illegal dealings should resign.

The Bloc spokesman said that he hoped that the Mayor will “move in the right direction”, particularly as a judge in a preliminary court hearing on those involved in the scandal had demanded that Nadal surrender his passport and prohibited him from leaving Spain.

Grosske said that if UM don't ask Nadal to leave of his own accord, it should be the Mayor who asks him, and the other councillors to leave as well because of the support they have shown to their colleague Nadal.
