The former governor of Oaxaca, Alejandro Murat, has announced that he will not withdraw his resignation from the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), the party he led in that entity from 2016 to 2022.
In a letter circulated on the networks, the now-ex-member of the PRI said: “I irrevocably present my resignation from the PRI.
Murat Hinojosa said he will no longer be part of “something” that does not define him as a person or as a politician.
“And that does not correspond to the vision of Mexico that encourages me to continue participating in public life. What Mexico needs most today is the politics of fear and hatred as an electoral strategy to win elections. At the end of this election, we are faced with the problem of choosing between the politics of cynicism and the politics of hope,” he said.
However, Alejandro Murat announced the creation of the Progressive Alliance for Mexico.
“The Progressive Alliance for Mexico allows the creation of an open space for dialogue, discussion, and reflection so that all Mexicans without distinction can participate. With the sole objective of contributing to the creation of a nation that deserves ours. So guided by hope, the strength of ideology and courage can write the best pages of our history,” added the Oaxacan politician.
Alejandro Murat argues that in his time, the PRI was created with a vision of protecting the rights of the people of Mexico.
Because of this, he showed that his political career involves both public education, access to a decent universal health system, and creating platforms for social, work, and development inclusion, among others.
“All this in the context of security and social justice for our families. As a person and a politician, actions and results define me. This is what I did when I was a federal deputy, director of Infonavit, and governor of Oaxaca,” he said.
