“This is a well-run, financially stable local authority and I would suggest that the opposition party should focus its effort on working constructively to improve the lives of our residents and our communities rather than embarrassing themselves by trying to score cheap political points,” Cllr Jones said.
Cllr Jones also said the Auditor General for Wales has no concerns about the performance of the council that would warrant any intervention.
But Cllr Mann said he wants to see the Welsh Government take more action.
“I’m very disappointed because the minister is failing the people of Caerphilly county and saying ‘no matter how bad the situation is, I won’t do anything’”, he added.
A spokeswoman for the Welsh Government said “it is wrong to suggest we are taking no action.”
The spokeswoman said that after the senior leadership issues have been resolved at the council, the Welsh Government will undertake a review to consider “whether the law on internal disciplinary proceedings needs to be changed.”
