MADRID, 24 May. (EUROPA PRESS) -
Morocco has responded to the accusations that it could be behind the purchase of votes by mail in Melilla ahead of Sunday's elections, which it has attributed to the electoral "context" in which they take place, while stressing the good currently existing relationship with Spain.
At a press conference reported by the local media, the government spokesman, Mustafá Baitas, stressed that the accusations against the Alaouite kingdom take place in a "known context" such as the elections in the autonomous city.
Thus, it has denied any interference in Spanish internal affairs. "The Government of Morocco cannot interfere", Baitas has maintained, who has taken the opportunity to value the good current relationship with Spain and influence the "full sovereignty" of Spain.
The Moroccan spokesman has spoken in this way after some parties, such as Vox or Ciudadanos, have pointed to the Alaouite kingdom as ultimately responsible for the plot to buy votes by mail in the autonomous city.
From Cs, it has been expressly requested that the alleged involvement of Morocco in this plot be investigated, which led to the arrest on Tuesday of ten people, including a councilor from the Coalition for Melilla (CPM) who has already been removed from his position.
Also in the party led by Santiago Abascal they have pointed to Morocco in this matter. The leader of Vox has blamed this Wednesday "the lackeys of Morocco", in reference to the Government, and the "obedient party of Morocco", in reference to CPM, of buying votes in Melilla.
