We want to be the answer to all the current and urgent needs of our society. Our MISSION is to promote and defend the“INVIOLABLE VALUES”that belong by birthright to every citizen.
-Based on 10 main points-
1.- THE RIGHT TO A DECENT LIFE:
a) Bonificación of the IBI on the first home (habitual residence).
If you want to understand all the benefits of this social move, read the following press article.
The IBI bonus process on the first home will be as follows:
1st year of government:
Income tax equal to or less than 30,000 euros per year and retirees will no longer pay the IBI on their first home. The rest of higher incomes will have a 50% discount on the fee. Companies, businesses and other properties that are not the first home of an individual are excluded.
2nd year of government:
Income tax equal to or less than 50,000 euros per year will no longer pay IBI on their first home. The rest of higher incomes will have a 50% discount on the fee. Companies, businesses and other properties that are not the first home of an individual are excluded.
3rd year of government:
Income tax equal to or less than 100,000 euros per year will no longer pay the IBI on their first home. The rest of higher incomes will have a 50% discount on the fee.
Companies, businesses and other properties that are not the first home of an individual are excluded.
4th year of government:
The IBI will no longer be paid on the first home. Companies, businesses and other properties that are not the first home of an individual are excluded.
b) Bonification of 100% the rate of circulation on the first vehicle for IRPF income less than or equal to 18,000 euros per year.
c) Increase in the rate of circulation for luxury vehicles:
Super-Cars, Yachts, Private Jets. New rates appropriate to the economic category.
d) Restructuring and optimization of the current social aid organization and distribution system:
Creations of effective economic aid: that depend on and adapt to each particular case and not more generic. Unas Aid adapted to the real and current needs of each individual or family.
2.- EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES:
All citizens regardless of race, sex, age and social status must have the same opportunities to develop without any prejudice.
a) Construction of new kindergartens and improvement of the current ones:
We will build and enable kindergartens in new public and free facilities so that children from Mijas have access to a quality education from a very young age.
These new Nursery Schools will also have better infrastructure, as well as a health post staffed by professionals.
ALL DIDACTIC MATERIALS WILL BE FREE. NO TUITION OR FEES.
b) Construction of a university campus in Mijas (professional training courses are included).
We will guarantee free enrollment to all Mijas and their children (Mijas with at least 5 years of registration in the municipality). We will create a system of university scholarships that support the neediest students.
Apart from the classic degrees (law, engineering or economics...) we will give way to modern and current degrees with specializations in the latest languages informatics and in systems programming, cyber security, internet of things , Blockchain and digital operating systems. In this way we will attract students from all over the world and the large multinational IT and digital companies that will create subsidiaries in Mijas in order to benefit from our "Human Capital".
c) Creation of specialized Social Centers to provide support and training to citizens who are in labor exclusion or who need to update their training.
Recruitment of professionals belonging to different cultural sectors who are capable of guiding, supporting and training workers through current courses related to market demand.
d) We will restructure the municipal company "Inserción Laboral de Renta Básica" to adapt it to current needs.
The function of this company created in 2011 is now obsolete, putting people to sweep streets, although it is a decent job like others, does not give the possibility of creating new jobs, training workers or stimulating innate passions._cc781905-5cde-3194 -bb3b-136bad5cf58d_
The basic income labor insertion company, while maintaining its option for cleaning streets and public areas (selectable by the user), must give each worker the possibility of choosing a labor sector that best suits their desires or passions .
For this reason, we will create, in collaboration with hundreds of Mijas companies (from different economic sectors), a training work program, through "Job Training" contracts (6-month contracts at 1 year) without no cost for Mijas companies with salaries paid by the municipal company.
E) Equality, minors and family
- Enabling a place as a Family Meeting Point, which will be managed by professionals with extensive careers in intra-family and intergenerational relationships (psychologists, family mediators, etc.)? It will be a neutral place for supervised visits and for the collection and delivery of minors in complicated divorces.
- The automation and communication by notification to both parents will be agreed in everything that concerns minors.
3.- THE DEFENSE OF CITIZENSHIP:
We will protect and we will defend the rights of all citizens, so that they once again feel the protection of the State as something good, as a symbol of trust and respect in defense of the common good:
a) We will create a department called “New operations in Mijas”
With an emergency telephone number attended 24 hours a day by a team of qualified people who will have more staff according to the hours of the day and the seasons of the year, increasing in the busiest hours or in the most problematic months:
This new department will deal with all kinds of emergency calls and will immediately process the incident to the corresponding action department: police, civil guard, firefighters, health services.
b) We will create mini police barracks (prefabricated) in the different residential areas of Mijas:
They will be operational from 11:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m., particularly in the areas of urbanizations that are practically unattended today. Each mini police station will have a minimum of 2 cars and at least 6 officers working during these 8 hours of the night. This operation may be extended during daytime hours according to the needs objetivas (for example the summer months when the urbanizations are more frequented).
c) We will reinforce the police presence in the metropolitan areas of Mijas to ensure maximum security for citizens throughout the day and night, especially in the most conflictive areas of our municipality.
d) We will create a new CYBER-ATTACKS department:
1.- We will form a team of professional experts in computer security who will provide direct and immediate support to citizens and companies that have been victims of computer attacks.
2.- Online and face-to-face computer security and attack prevention courses will be organized.
e) We will create a department to combat gender violence, child abuse and protection of the elderly:
Acting immediately is the solution to eradicate the problem, therefore:
a.- We will make an investment in human capital by forming several teams of social workers, psychologists and lawyers.
b.- Shelter centers will be made available to these people that provide accommodation, assistance and social and labor reintegration to all victims who suffer from social abandonment and who find themselves without financial resources.
4.- THE CARE OF CITIZENSHIP:
Health care and healthcare are one of the most important points of this social program and will be our absolute priority:
a.- We will immediately carry out structural improvements, spaces and services in the health center (24 hours) of Las Lagunas de Mijas.
b.- We are going to create new primary care health centers (we will restructure empty and unused properties of the Mijas town hall) to support the current health centers of the Cala de Mijas and Las Lagunas. 2 of them will also have a 24-hour emergency service to support the Las Lagunas service and avoid saturation.
c.- We are going to increase the number of ambulances for urgent transfers from the medical centers in Mijas to the Costa del Sol Hospital in Marbella (the closest) or to the other hospitals in the provinces of Malaga.
d.- We are going to negotiate with the Junta de Andalucía to receive European funds and sufficient capital for the construction of a new macro-university hospital in Mijas. In this way, not only in the coming years will we have one of the most modern hospital structures, but we will also have a medical school that will guarantee us specialized doctors and state-of-the-art medicine.
5.- CONSTRUCTION OF OFFICIAL PROTECTION HOUSING (VPO) AND SOCIAL ASSISTANCE FOR RENT. INTERVENTION FOR OCCUPIED DWELLINGS.
Our proposals are the following:
a.- Construction of VPO housing:
Only and exclusively Mijas citizens who have been registered in the municipality for a minimum of 10 years will have access to it. Homes with 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedrooms will be built in order to give access in a non-discriminatory manner to any type of family unit, from the single person to large families.
We will build officially protected housing from the first year of the Government.
The homes will have complementary services such as swimming pools, gardens and sports areas. Its quality and price will be proportionally correct and accessible.
These homes will be offered for:
1.- Sale at VPO price.

3.- VPO low income rental.
b.- For housing rental:
We will promote monthly subsidies for housing rentals according to their surface area, number of family members, etc.
c.- Occupied dwellings:

6.- ECOLOGY AND ENVIRONMENT (Flora and fauna), NATURAL RESOURCES and OURS PETS
Our municipality treasures an immense natural heritage that we must maintain, increase and enjoy. To this end we propose:
1) Promote and request the declaration of the SIERRAS DE MIJAS-ALPUJATA NATURAL PARK, 29,000 hectares of natural park that affects 10 municipalities, green lung and nature reserve from Malaga to the world.
Protect our mountains by creating jobs for the cleaning and care of the mountains. Promote grazing and livestock. Repopulate with holm oaks, oaks, cork oaks, strawberry trees and native species that do not burn, using the exploitation of pine wood to create a native, sustainable forest that produces social welfare.
2) Promote and request the declaration of the first MARINE NATURAL PARK OF THE COSTA DEL SOL. 21 Square kilometers of coastline, to protect our beaches, the quality of our waters, marine life and our posidonia meadows.
In addition, for our municipality we want:
a.- The construction of new parks (with an average size of 5,000 m2 with wooded areas, lawns, a children's play area and a GYM machine area) in the different urbanized areas of Mijas where there are currently only abandoned vacant lots.
b.- In those areas where it is possible, the containers for organic waste and for the collection of paper, glass and plastic, including the collection of oil, will be buried.
c.- To fight against plastic, we will be the first city council in Spain to enable sufficient and free supply points (redistributed throughout the Mijas city council) of Purified Water with and without gas for domestic use, available 24 hours a day.

Said Department of Animal Welfare will have the following functions, among others:

e. Environment: Rivers and trails
- Cleaning of the last section of the Fuengirola River, since it contaminates the entire area of the mouth, causing poisoning in wild and domestic animals, and construction of a sewage collection collector connected to the treatment plant. The migratory birds will have a stop in Mijas free of contamination.
- Installation of wildlife observation posts, especially migratory birds.
- Restoration of the Sendero de las Minas, in Osunillas, as well as other forgotten trails in Mijas.
- Improvement in the protection and signaling of the reproduction areas of the Kentish Plover during its breeding season (from May to July), as well as other birds that nest in Mijas, through cordoning and surveillance.
7.- STRUCTURAL IMPROVEMENT AND ECONOMIC BOOST PROJECTS
The municipality of Mijas, along with the Costa del Sol, is one of the most popular destinations for tourists from all over the world.
This source of wealth that comes from tourism must benefit all the citizens of Mijas, not only by improving all public service structures, but also by promoting opportunities for the people of Mijas.
For this reason, we propose the following maneuvers:
1.- The creation of a "Growth, Development and Optimization of Mijas" department, which will include the participation of renowned professionals specialized in different sectors: economic, structural and social.
On the other hand, this department will have a team of observers who will carry out their work in the streets of the municipality to evaluate in the first line all the problems that may or are affecting our community, such as broken sidewalks, streets in poor condition, absent lighting or deficient, and any structural and operational problem that affects the Mijas community as a whole.
2.- The granting of subsidies for the creation of economic and social projects, and also to allow the expansion or growth of existing businesses.
The award process will be much easier, and professionals will be provided free of charge to support and assist each applicant.
8.- THE CONSTRUCTION OF A GLASS VIEWPOINT
We are going to transform Mijas into the jewel of the Costa del Sol so that it attracts tourists from all over the world, and in this way produces wealth for all Mijas.
We will build the first glass viewpoint on the Costa del Sol, on one of the hills of Mijas.
This project will be co-financed by regional, national and European entities.
It will be called: THE VIEWPOINT OF THE SUN
a.- Its construction will be ECO-SUSTAINABLE and totally autonomous, it will be based on green energy. We will create a Crystal Platform suspended in the air with a capacity for 500 people.
b.- Your entry for Mijas will always be free.
c.- El Mirador and all its complementary facilities will be fully managed by the City Council, without concessions or tenders.
d.- El Mirador will include a cafeteria and a glass restaurant.
g.- All the profits collected from the Mirador, as well as from the restaurant and cafeteria, will be fully invested in a municipal plan to repopulate trees and in the creation of green areas throughout the municipality of Mijas. In this way we will increase the environmental quality of our municipality.
9.- FIGURE OF THE ELDERLY IN MIJAS
a) Creation of a new Home for the Retired in Las Lagunas de Mijas, and improvements in both the current center in Mijas Pueblo and in La Cala de Mijas.

1. Golf classes and other sports, free for retirees.
2. Artistic and cultural activities (body expression, music, theater, etc.), free for retirees.
3) Offer of aid (financial or labor), when the pension does not reach the SMI.
c) Help dependency:
- Creation of a day center managed by professionals.
- Increase the hours of home assistance, which includes cleaning tasks, for dependent people who live alone.
- Carrying out periodic inspections to verify the conditions of the care services for dependents.
10.- LEISURE AND FREE TIME IN MIJAS
The right to leisure and to be able to enjoy free time should not be reserved only for those with a higher purchasing power, but should be a universal right.
So here are our proposals:
1.- Reopening of the old cinemas of Mijas, with municipal management, with discounted prices for Mijas.
2.- The creation of a leisure space on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays with different music programs, socio-cultural entertainment and concerts (WITH FREE ACCESS FOR MIJEÑOS).
