In Melilla, the stability of the local government depends heavily on the import of Moroccan sheep. The leader of Coalition for Melilla (CpM), a Spanish political party in Melilla, said that he will break his alliance with the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE) if the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture bans the import of Moroccan sheep ahead of Eid al-Adha.

Mustapha Aberchan said, Tuesday, that he will reconsider his pact with PSOE if the central government prevents the Muslim community from importing Moroccan sheep to celebrate the holiday, Melilla Hoy reported on Wednesday.

The head of Melilla government Eduardo de Castro organized a meeting on July 10, inviting the spokesperson of CpM to address the situation.

Eduardo de Castro, from the Ciudadanos political party, called for a meeting with the Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries, Luis Planas, to tackle the issue. For now, it has not taken place yet.
