“We never stopped”

Óscar Noda was a councillor in Yaiza for several years until he stepped up to the Mayor's position in 2018, and was elected to the post in the 2019 elections. This month he'll be standing for re-election as Mayor, as well as a seat in the Cabildo.

Eye on the island

Lanzarote is well-served by the press. There are several digital news sites online, some of which print monthly editions; two Canarian newspapers which also carry coverage of the island and a number of local radio and TV stations too. Journalism and a free press are regarded as essential elements of Spain's democracy.
