Within the framework of the competition to attain the presidential candidacy within Brunettewhere each applicant has ventured into various strategies to appear among the supporters, the journalist Raymundo Riva Palacio ironized with an alleged “subliminal propaganda” of the head of Government of Mexico City, claudia sheinbaum Brown.
Through his Twitter account, Riva Palacio shared a photograph of a giant bottle cap located on the Mexico-Cuernavaca highway, which he ironically described as propaganda of the candidate to occupy the chair of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) in 2024. “I found a subliminal advertisement for @Claudiashein on the Cuernavaca highway”wrote.
And it is that the termbottle cap” is used to refer to political figures who seek to relieve the head of the federal Executive. This expression began to be used by López Obrador himself to refer to his possible successors. “There are no longer covered, I am the bottle opener and my favorite bottle cap is going to be the one from the town”, expressed the president in June 2021.
In this sense, Sheinbaum, the Secretary of Foreign Affairs (SRE), Marcelo Ebrard Casaubón and the head of the Ministry of the Interior (Segob), Adán Augusto López, have participated in various public events where they have been received among choirs as “president, president” or, in the case of Claudia, “president”.
In addition, they have also tried to appear on social networks to get closer to the electorate present on the internet. In this way, various public figures, including Sheinbaum and Ebrard, have implemented the use of platforms like TikTok where they take the opportunity to upload “fun” content.
However, the attempt to appear does not stop there, since the capital’s manager has also been singled out for resorting to paint fences with the legend #EsClaudia. Since last June, painted fences have appeared in various parts of the capital, with which the image of the local president is promoted in the face of the 2024 elections.
For this reason, the parliamentary group of National Action (BREAD) in the local congress prepared a complaint before the National Electoral Institute (INE). However, at the beginning of September, the Complaints and Denunciations Commission of the electoral body considered that there were not enough elements to issue precautionary measures against the official for the alleged commission of anticipated campaign acts.
“The Complaints Commission considered that there is no justification for, at this time, to issue a precautionary measure that has as its purpose the withdrawal, removal or suspension of the messages, tarpaulins and fences denounced, because the Federal Electoral Process 2024 begins in September 2023″, reads the INE resolution.
Meanwhile, Riva Palacio himself assured in recent days that Claudia Sheinbaum will be the person that López Obrador will choose to succeed him in power. The analyst wrote through his opinion column that it is not a surprise that the Tabascan already chose who was his Secretary of the Environment when he was head of Government of the Federal District.
In addition, he charged that Claudia will not be able to grow her preference among the people on her own, so Sheinbaum’s success, first in the Brunette and then at the polls, it depends on AMLO. He even considered that Andrés Manuel could request permission to leave the presidency and start coordinating Sheinbaum’s campaign in the last months of his term.
