The Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD) announced that it will compete with its federal candidates—deputies and senators—in the 2024 elections.
Through a statement, the party stated that this decision arose because of the behavior of the national leaders of the National Action Party (PAN) and the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), who, according to the PRD, do not value the qualitative contribution that it brought to the opposition coalition.
“They intend to exclude civil society and the PRD itself from the agreements to walk together, determined to consider competing with our federal candidates to contribute to the change that Mexico needs today,” the PRD said in its statement.
The decision was made after a consultation with the state directors of the PRD. In the statement, the party expressed its dissatisfaction with the alleged exclusion of civil society and the PRD itself from the agreements to join the coalition.
The PRD reaffirmed its full support for the presidential candidate, Xóchitl Gálvez Ruiz, whose registration was granted this Sunday.
The party emphasized that Mexico needs “a democratic, inclusive, and left-wing social democratic response” to counter the “authoritarian project” used by the National Palace.
The party is convinced that the Broad Front for Mexico must be inclusive to achieve electoral success, win the Presidency of the Republic and a majority in the Congress of the Union, and promote a coalition government at all levels.
The statement also indicated that the PRD is committed to contributing all efforts to defeat the centralist, authoritarian, populist, and conservative projects that, according to them, Morena represents.
