Bowing to public pressure (or so I am told) the winners of the election of 27 May joined with the runners up to form the majority group. The Mayor will be from the winning Partido Popular and the "Deputy Mayor" will be the front runner from the second placed Union Central Liberal. The coalition will have 9 of the 13 seats on the council.
So the stories about the briefcases full of money were untrue which is rather good to know. Maybe it's a sign of the (less corrupt) times.
