The candidate who lost the vote to preside over the centennial club on June 27 says that “the Board recognizes that the elections are open to fraud”
José Pallarés does not give up. On June 27 he lost the elections to the presidency of the Real Murcia Club de Tenis 1919, a position for which he was a candidate, against Antonio Saura. The result did not add up to him. Suspicions that something had happened are centered on voting by mail. The electoral Board, despite the allegation of alleged fraud, validated the elections. But Pallarés does not give up and announces that he will appeal the result in court. He believes that his complaint is supported by a statement from the Board itself in which, according to him, “it considers it impossible, with the current statutes, to guarantee the validity or non-falsification of votes, and therefore they rule that the winning candidacy is morally obliged to the amendment of the statutes within a maximum period of one year ”.
For Pallarés “it is not possible for the Electoral Board itself to recognize that the elections are open to fraud and have not been declared invalid.” He insists on denouncing that the current directive, “some of whose members are going to chain up to 17 years in a row in the armchairs, perpetuates a system that lends itself to electoral corruption and therefore they have not modified obsolete statutes.”
The last modification of the statutes of the MCT 1919 dates from 2007. Antonio Saura, re-elected president of the centenary club in Murcia, announced some changes in his program, “but without taking away from the member the option to vote as it suits him best. We can not fault the partners, “he says in reference to the possibility of voting by mail.
Pallarés, who assures that he has appealed in a timely manner, complains that he has not been attended by the Electoral Board, and adds that they did not give him the electoral roll he claimed. Saura did not receive it either, who says in this regard that “some have made every effort to ensure that the personal data of the members were delivered to the candidates, despite being prohibited by the regulations on data protection and there are reports that advise against it.”
