The president of the SPT, Roberto Pagán.
The lawyer Ángel Miguel García Pardo filed a complaint with the Office of the Electoral Comptroller (OCE) in which he imputed the Victory Citizen Movement (MVC) and the Puerto Rican Union of Workers (SPT) violate Law 222 for the Financing of Political Campaigns by coordinating to pay for the political campaign.
The lawyer not only asks the OCE to investigate this matter, but also order the SPT and the MVC leadership to “immediately stop” the alleged violation of Law 222.
“With the election so close, it is useless if in the sight of hundreds of voters, a flagrant violation of the basic rules on the issue of campaign finance is allowed,” reads the 11-page complaint.
García Pardo argues in his complaint that the president of the SPT, Roberto Pagán, to coordinate with part of the SPT leadership to finance the MVC's political campaign, which is prohibited by Law 222.
Although this is the first complaint against the SPT, there was already a complaint for the same matter before the OCE presented by the new-progressive representative José Enrique “Quiquito” Meléndez and the candidate for senator for the district of San Juan, Nitza Morán.
Pagán has denied the accusation and has been confident that there will not be a favorable determination by the OCE regarding the complaints.
