Regulatory Council of Denomination of Origin of Vinalopó Bagged Table Grapes.
One of the most striking cases has been that of the results obtained in the votes held for the Regulatory Council of Denomination of Origin of Embolsada Table Grapes of Vinalopó, where the Alicante organization has obtained 134 votes for Census A, that of the producers in front of 50 of the Unió de Llauradors, which means 4 members for ASAJA compared to 1 only member that the Unió achieves, with the consolidation as president of this DO of Pepe Bernabéu, who repeats in the position of presidency.
In Census B, that of traders, there were no votes and the joint candidacy of ASAJA and FEXPHAL reached an agreement that was settled: Fexphal and ASAJA, 4 members; La Unió, 1 vowel.
Ecological Agriculture Committee (CAECV)
In the case of CAECV, ASAJA Alicante has obtained historical results in the four tables in Alicante. It should be remembered that the CAECV is the only Council in which the elections are autonomous, and that of the 454 votes obtained by the joint candidacy of ASAJA Alicante and AVA ASAJA in the entire Valencian Community, 299 have been obtained among the four tables of the province of Alicante, in front of the 82 of the Unió. Specifically, the Almoradí county office has been the one that has registered the largest number of voters in the entire Community, with 142 voters, of which 122 have voted for ASAJA Alicante.
Thus, the joint candidacy of ASAJA Alicante and AVA-ASAJA has obtained more votes and members than La UNIÓ and COAG in all the censuses: in Census A (producers) it obtained 454 votes by 262 from La UNIÓ and 45 from COAG; in census B (elaborators) it gathers 89 votes by 67 of LA UNIÓ; and in census C (importers) it accumulated 10 votes by 6 of LA UNIÓ. These results imply the achievement of 6 members by ASAJA Alicante and AVA ASAJA compared to 4 by the Unió and, therefore, a change of presidency in the CAECV, which passes from the hands of the noveldense representative of the Unió Antonio Rico, to the candidates of AVA ASAJA and ASAJA Alicante, Vicente Faro and José Vicente Andreu, the latter, also president of ASAJA Alicante who joins the board of directors from CAECV for the first time.
