MALLORCA TODAY - Call for island councils to be abolished

The UPyD (Unión Progreso y Democracia), a party which was formed nationally in 2007 and which has only made its presence felt in Mallorca quite recently, has called for the councils in the Balearics, such as the Council of Mallorca, to be scrapped. This is on account of a lack of transparency and of the duplication in bureaucracy and public administration that they represent. (I have, on several occasions, drawn into question the purpose of the Council of Mallorca, suggesting its abolition or that its responsibilities be reduced significantly.)
