Palma.—President Jose Ramon Bauza, in an attempt to ease the political tension being fuelled by the opposition Socialists who are calling for him to resign, Bauza has published details relating to his tax returns and income on the Internet and all members of the Partido Popular government and high ranking PP officials have been advised to do the same.

The opposition claim that this is a mere publicity stunt which the PP claim it is a sign of the party's transparency and commitment to complying with the wishes of the general public.

All of the financial data is being posted on the PP's official website and Bauza, claiming he has no more information to provide, has declared that his political future rests in the hands of the courts which are still investigating if their is a clash of interests between his political and private business activities as a pharmacist who owns a chemist and various properties.

Yesterday, flanked by the Mayor of Palma, Mateu Isern, the President of the Council of Majorca, Maria Salom, Parliamentary Speaker, Margalida Duran, the central government delegate to the Balearics, Teresa Palmer and the Presidents of the Councils of Ibiza and Minorca, Vicence Tur and Santiago Tadeo, President Bauza, appeared before the media to announce the PP's new transparency programme adding that it will hopefully serve to stop the opposition from making false accusations against the PP.

Maria Salom said that the Council of Majorca has nothing to hide and accused the leaders of the opposition parties of acting as “magistrates” instead of trying to help the democratic process work.
