After the resignation of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) of the licensed mayor of Cuajimalpa, Adrián Rubalcava, as well as the former governor of Oaxaca, Alejandro Murat, the national leader of the tricolor, Alejandro Moreno Cárdenas, launched a series of criticisms of those “They have enjoyed great opportunities, they have benefited from them and when it comes to making them commit to work, to strengthen the party before achieving personal advantages, they stand up, they- blackmailing the party and trying to weaken us.”
Separately, after completing his registration as a presidential candidate for the PRI and the PRD, Xóchitl Gálvez called for the closing of the ranks and assured that, for his part, he proposed that the most competitive will be in the state and Mexico City that election for next year. “I didn’t make the decision, period, the decision was made by the presidents of the parties,” he stressed.
Alejandro Moreno was welcomed this Sunday with the cry of “Alito, Alito” by PRI members who attended the registration as Gálvez’s pre-candidate. The event took place in a hotel in the Polanco area, in a room with a capacity of almost 200 people.
Delivering a message that lasted twice as long as the one issued by the presidential candidate, Moreno continued that “no one can put the destiny, democracy and freedom of our country in danger. Nothing is greater than a party, no one put pressure on PRI, no one blackmailed PRI. In PRI, decisions are made and in PRI we go with militant strength.
Without directly referring to Rubalcava, Murat, or the PRI senators who were expelled from the party a few months ago, he added: “We witnessed the expulsion of some cadres who left, political cadres from our party , but who “In the end , it is shown that more than the military of our political institute, they are enrolled in the order of opportunism, which is called not only by the non-committed members of the PRI, but they are dominated by their ambition, trying to take over our organization in an abusive and irresponsible way.”
He pointed out that their expulsion, or in cases where they leave the PRI, “instead of diminishing us, it strengthens us. We lost a peso that became useful, a burden that undermined the PRI, a group of cynics who, because of this, society does not give us their trust because they are a group of corrupt people who are ruining the party.”
And when it was defended that in the PRI they listened to all the militants, he added that the party decided to go to the most competitive, after that, he said, “we all go in that direction, because that is our members in the PRI, we are the same and close ranks together.” “.
He also took the opportunity to attack Samuel García, presidential candidate of the Movimiento Ciudadano, a party he described as Morena’s “servile squirrel and lackey”.
Regarding García, he classified him as “an irresponsible and mythomaniac,” as well as “a pseudo candidate to hit, diminish and try to intimidate the opposition, especially our partner, the next presidential candidate, Xóchitl Gálvez.” He announced that the PRI would conduct “a fierce campaign, even more, to show the Citizen Movement.”
Interviewed after presenting his registration, Gálvez regretted Rubalcava’s decision to resign from the PRI, and argued that “the same thing will happen in Morena, there are those who left Morena, those who left PAN, there are those who left PRD and in The PRI itself, but I think what they are counting on here is to convince the 97 million Mexicans that they must issue a decision, we must try them, obviously welcome the leadership, but many moment when the participation of citizens is heavier.
Asked if he saw a weak PRI, he replied “a PRI that is developing, with good members of the PRI” and even expressed his happiness at the departure of some tricolor militants, among them the former governor of Hidalgo, Omar Fayad.
