The recent accusation against Councilor Ivone Delgado, who was allegedly receiving a full salary as Councilwoman, despite simultaneously holding the position of head of the Cape Verde Post Office on the island, provoked a wave of discontent and controversy. This accusation was promptly denied by the Mayor, Francisco Tavares, who defended the integrity of municipal administrative management.

In response to the official denial, PAICV deputies were quick to counterattack. They now demand that the Brava City Council provide quarterly financial statements, seeking transparency and accountability in the administration of public resources. This request comes as a direct consequence of the growing tensions between members of the local legislature and the municipal executive.

The population of Brava, an island known for its tranquility and community cohesion, has observed with increasing concern the increase in political disputes that seem increasingly centered on personal accusations and financial management, with each day approaching the elections. The lack of consensus among local political leaders threatens not only the stability of municipal government, but also citizens' trust in the integrity of the democratic process.

Meanwhile, both Councilwoman Ivone Delgado and President Francisco Tavares face increasing pressure to clarify the allegations and restore order within the local legislative and executive body. The community's expectation is for a quick and transparent resolution of these disputes, allowing local governance to resume its focus on the well-being of the population and the sustainable development of Brava.
