In recent days the coalition goes to Mexico -formed by the Institutional Revolutionary parties (PRI)National Action (BREAD) and the Democratic Revolution (PRD)- has been in the midst of controversy and uncertainty, because after almost 19 months of training, today their own leaders are unknown among them.
And it is that after the initiative presented by the deputy of the tricolor Yolanda de la Torrewhat are you looking for extend until 2028 the presence of the Army in the streets for public security tasks, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) and National Regeneration Movement (Brunette) have not stopped “flirting” with members of the PRI, thus reviving old rumors about the alliance COUSIN.
To this is added that the national leaders of the blue and white party and the Aztec sun announced a temporary suspension “until the Institutional Revolutionary does not clearly define whether he will honor our electoral platform common coalition goes to Mexico and the Constitutional Moratorium that we signed in June of this year”.
The alliance, announced on December 22, 2020 and officially registered with the National Electoral Institute (INE) a day later, emerged after in November of that year the national leaders of the PRI, Alexander Moreno Cardenas, of the PAN, Marko Cortes Mendoza, and the PRD, Jesus Zambrano Grijalva, supported the agenda that the organization yes for mexico presented.
The alliance, they explained at the time, would seek for the three parties to be a counterweight in the Chamber of Deputies and in the Senate of the Republicwith the aim of preventing the passage of regressive constitutional reforms, defending autonomous bodies and promoting an alternative expenditure budget.
They also indicated that they would seek defend employment, guarantee access to health services, guarantee vaccination of girls and boys and provide oncology drugs.
Despite the fact that the Congress of the Union approved in 2019 a reform for the National Guard to develop its territorial structure within a period of five years, the president López Obrador raised, during the morning press conference on August 12, that the elements of the Armed Forces remained in the streets beyond 2024.
Almost coincidentally, the deputy of the tricolor, Yolanda de la Torre, presented a reform initiative to extend participation from five to nine years of the Armed Forces in public security tasksa project that was well received by the federal president and his party, but that caused surprise and indignation in the leadership of the PRD and PAN.
After the announcement, and after the PRI leadership ratified the constitutional reform initiative, the leaders of the aztec sun and blue and white announced the suspension of the coalition.
As detailed by the parties on September 7, the initiative presented It caused them surprise and “deep discomfort”since by extending the militarization until 2028, it also extends the unconstitutional action of the Permanent Armed Forces and violates the constitutional order.
“Extending the militarization of the country is tremendously irresponsible, since it implies transferring responsibility for public security to the armed forces, its fateful results and the failure of the government strategy”
Given this, Marko Cortés and Jesús Zambrano made a call to the leadership of the Institutional Revolutionary and their legislators so that, “beyond political and even personal situations, they assume with total responsibility the difficult situation that is being experienced.”
“The Legislative Coalition goes to Mexico has the popular mandate of millions of Mexicans and the possibility of an electoral alternative should not be put at risk heading to 2024″, reads a document.
They also demanded the tricolor respect the constitutional moratorium signed in 2022, which was intended to “take care of the Electoral Institute and prevent the continuation of the militarization” of the country.
However, despite the alliance’s call, wing Moreno defended the legislative initiative arguing that at this time the most important thing is “peace and tranquility” of the country.
“This proposal is not a blank check, nor are we doing the job for the federal government, this is a decision we made for Mexico, because It is time that decisions in this country are made with Mexicans in mind and not for personal interests, or groupnor from a political party,” he said at a press conference on September 7.
Within the framework of the discussion on extending the work of the armed forces in public security tasks, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador assured that the tricolor “does well to rectify” and asked the PRI to analyze the results they have obtained with the alliance goes to Mexico: “What has the PRI gained from this alliance?” he stated.
In addition, when questioned about criticism of the alleged PRIMOR alliance by the bloc of opposition parties, the head of the federal Executive assured that at least the PAN has a different project.
“Are different projectswith all due respect, the PAN doctrine of these times is hypocrisy (…) That hypocrisy is what we should not accept We can even disagree, it is even healthy that there is plurality that the right to dissent is guaranteed, that there is opposition, that there is criticism, but in matters that have to do with people’s lives we must put politics aside”, underlined the federal president in his traditional morning.
Likewise, congratulated the PRI for promoting the reform in terms of the National Guard, since, he assured, “the majority of legislators are acting responsibly, I congratulate them even if our corrupt conservative opponents do not like it but is to act responsibly because it is about guaranteeing peace, tranquility in the country”.
Therefore, after the sudden flirtation with Morena, analysts and political figures indicated that the deputy’s initiative would have the purpose of saving Alejandro Moreno from the investigations of the Campeche Attorney General’s Office for alleged illicit enrichment and avoid their outrage.
To this is added that the governor of Campeche and one of the main “enemies” of wing Dark, Layda Sansores, announced that during his program “Tuesday of the Jaguar” he will not speak of the national leader of the PRI.
