The decision made by the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) to create lists of multi-member candidates for the chambers of senators and deputies includes leadership figures but also PRI members competing for governorship and was defeated by Morena.
In this case, there are, for example, Alejandra del Moral, a former candidate for governor of the state of Mexico, and Christian Castro Bello, who lost the election in Campeche and is the nephew of the national leader, Alejandro Moreno Cárdenas.
To PRI members’ surprise, the Senate lists did not include Senator Beatriz Paredes Rangel, who registered to run for re-election.
As part of the list’s surprises, Come on Moreno is included as a candidate for the deputy Juan Carlos Hank Krauss, son of Jorge Hank Rhon, owner of Grupo Caliente and former mayor of Tijuana, and grandson of Professor Carlos Hank González, who was Secretary of Agriculture in the six-year term of Carlos Salinas de Gortari.
“Hank’s coming home!” he celebrated. In a tweet, he announced the nomination of the current PES councilor for mayor of Tijuana.
In the lists revealed, because the leadership of the PRI is still hiding them, it is confirmed that they will seek again the Chamber of Deputies, the coordinator Rubén Moreira, and the current president of the Board of Directors, Marcela Guerra, who is in first and second place in the second constituency.
Then, in the third place, Moreno included the former governor of Zacatecas, Miguel Alonso; in the fourth, Senator Verónica Martínez; in the fifth, the federal representative from Tabasco, Erubiel Alonso; and in the sixth again, the representative Fuensanta Guerrero.
The local representative for Oaxaca, Eufrosina Vázquez, will return to San Lázaro, where she is already a legislator.
In the first place of the fifth constituency, the leadership includes the president of the Colosio Foundation, Samuel Palma César, who replaced José Murat in that position.
