JAVEA Mayor Jose Chulvi has been appointed General Secretary of the socialist PSOE party for the Province of Alicante.
The 46-year-old Javea-born politician said he accepted the position “with pleasure” and thanked party members for the show of “support and confidence”.
Mr Chulvi, who was elected mayor of the Marina Alta town in 2011, said: “It is an important position that I am assuming with enthusiasm; to continue helping to improve the lives of the people who live in each of our towns and districts.
“Also, I assume it with a sense of responsibility, since the work that lies ahead will demand the best of my efforts.”
He said together with everyone who worked for PSOE in Alicante, the way forward was through “the sum of our joint energy and ideas” that would help the province “arrive at a safe port”.
The politician also pledged to consolidate the good work of the party already achieved and to continue to improve.
