The political group of Santiago, led by former governor Leonel Cota Montaño and the president of the municipality of Los Cabos, Óscar Leggs Castro, “closed ranks” this Saturday morning in an event held this Saturday in Bellavista Casino in La Paz.
In front of hundreds of Morenoist militants and geologists, the mayor of Cabeño and the moral leader of the Santiago Group agree that the viable option for the municipality of La Paz is Manuel Cota Cárdenas.
Through the use of his voice, Manuel Cota Cárdenas acknowledged that since 1999, his father taught the gubernatorial candidate something very important to mark his political life:
“In 1999, Mr. Leonel Cota Montaño said that your head will be bowed to the people and not to the rulers. That is why, for us, all of you are very important, because no project, movement, or party can be anything without the people,” said Cota Cárdenas.
In front of the people who attended shouting, “President! President! President!” Manuel Cota Cárdenas recognized the work of La Paz city council staff who were on the streets sweeping and holding the day of cleaning.
“I want to send a greeting to all my friends who work at La Paz City Hall, who came out very early today to sweep and do cleaning activities, and who sent me messages of support.”
For his part, when the mayor of Cabeño, Óscar Leggs Castro, spoke, he said: “Continuing the advancement of the left requires true unity. For the benefit of the Cabeños, the Paceños, and all the inhabitants of Baja California Sur, the Fourth Amendment must continue. Because of this, the joint and united work of all those who support the national coordinator, Claudia Sheinbaum, is necessary.
In the same way, he called on all the people to “when the time comes, not before, participate and vote in the survey that will come to their homes, and in this way, the popular decision is followed and not the imposition of groups.”
“Whoever wins the survey, I myself will raise my hand, but I will not accept any imposition from groups that want to destroy the development of Baja California Sur, and if the survey says that the continuity continues in Los Cabos, the survey is for the people, not for the group,” said Mayor Leggs Castro.
Finally, Leonel Cota Montaño warned: “The will of the people cannot be avoided, and although I am a supporter of gender equality, at the end of the day, the people will decide.”
Among the applause, Leonel Cota Montaño, Mayor Leggs Castro, and Manuel Cota Cárdenas, along with federal deputy Alfredo Porras and Rosa Delia Cota Montaño, took a souvenir photo with Bellavista Casino attendees behind them.
