A notably civilised election campaign has taken a turn for the worse in the last few days, with Cabildo President María Dolores Corujo announcing legal action against a local publication and responding to allegations that she has lost her licence for drunk driving.
Following rumours and accusations on social media, Corujo called a press conference yesterday in which she offered the press a statement from the Traffic Department proving that she had not been fined for, nor committed any driving offence.
The day before, she announced legal action for defamation against Lancelot publications, which had accused her of concealing documents from a meeting of the island’s Water Consortium.
Elsewhere, campaign posters for the Primero Teguise and Nueva Canarias parties appear to have been systematically vandalised.
