On June 16, 2019 the socialist Airam Gate (40 years) was sworn in as mayor of Güímar, a baton that he will have to give up, two years later, to the nationalist Gustavo Perez, after the resignation that must take place tomorrow.
The socialist received the five votes of his party, the four of CC and that of Sí se Podemos, although this party did not enter the local government, while the councilors of the PP (the most voted force) and the mayor of Ciudadanos opposed.

Pérez: “The pact is fulfilled”
Gustavo Pérez is not clear: “The pact is fulfilled.” Airam Puerta has also said it, but with a small mouth, when he has spoken, before hiding from the press these last days. Perhaps, in order not to leave his party (PSOE) in a bad place, which has asked him, from the Insular, not to comply with the agreement and govern with external support, for example from the PP, even at the cost of him leaving the City Council for a position in the Government of the Canary Islands and leave another socialist at the head of the Mayor’s Office. Yes it can, which will also make a change of councilor in the ordinary plenary session on the 24th by agreement with its ally Izquierda Unida (Nayra Caraballero for Ruyman Expósito) and Ciudadanos (Raquel Díaz) affirm that they have not received any proposal for a new local government .
