SOME people might think fewer politicians is a good thing, but whatever your views two Marina Alta towns will be having fewer councillors soon due to their falling populations.  Parcent’s population has dropped below a thousand while the Vall d’Ebo now only has 224 official residents and both will have two fewer councillors after the next elections.

They will have seven and five respectively, and many of the political portfolios will be shared as tends to happen with smaller municipalities.
