The insistence of Ricardo Monreal to be included in the “presidential list for the 24th” has forced the hand of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who has twelve months to ensure that the nomination of the successor is smooth.
That and no other is the cause of the confrontation with the governor of Veracruz, Cuitláhuac García, who is supported by the President, thus supporting a lawsuit that, sure they are in the Palace, will stop Monreal and return him to the lane.
The President and the Zacatecan come from the PRI diaspora of ’88; They know that, if in the past absolute presidential control of the successor selection process was vital, it is more vital today, since the Official Party is still just a pot of tamales.
Against the INE, moral authority, not the law
Despite the fact that the left created the complex and expensive institutional framework that is the INE, now they rely on a fallacious concept of austerity to dismantle the institution that guarantees us free and democratic elections.
As if having moral authority empowered to violate the Constitution and its laws, they want to change the operating rules of the INE and force it to submit to those who believe that the institutional parameter of the Republic should be “Juarista austerity.”
But, as the classic says, “for the new generations”, any economist proves that, in today’s pesos, the salary of Don Benito Juárez would be equivalent to a salary almost four times higher than that of President López Obrador. Just imagine!
Splurge, change ongoing projects
Those who were with the architect José Luis Ezquerra in the construction of the hotel “Las Hadad”, in Manzanillo, witnessed how many changes were made at the whims of the owner, the Bolivian Antenor Patiño, “the king of tin.”
For example, an engineer changed the style of the windows in a villa. As Mr. Patino toured the work, he said: “I like that style, that’s how I want all the windows,” it was necessary to change the ones in the entire hotel.
Many and very expensive changes of opinion; but Antenor Patiño paid them with his money, not the Nation, as if he paid the cost increases of the Mayan Train where the project undergoes so many changes.
There are those who suppose the decline of the Attorney General of the Republic Alejandro Gertz Manero is near. Without speculating on the reasons for his lawsuit with the former head of the FIU Santiago Nieto, one can assure that if someone is fully aware of the autonomy of the prosecution is its current head … The agreement between the Hidalgo governor Omar Fayad and the PRI national leader Alejandro Cárdenas Moreno suggests that, despite everything, in future appointments realism will prevail and should not be one of the illusionists of politics … today Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard will give the line to heads of embassies and consuls meeting in the SER … Senator Napoleón Gómez Urrutia is preparing a mining law initiative that, he says, will tame the market … The great political scientist Giovanni Sartori left us this valuable reflection: “It is necessary to take into account that, Sometimes elections can kill a democracy ”…
