President Andrés Manuel López Obrador attacked opposition parties, whom he described as undemocratic and with very afraid, since they presented an action of unconstitutionality to overthrow the Mandate Revocation Law, as well as the consultation on ratification or replacement of the agent which is scheduled for March 2022.

“No doubt they are very afraid of the people, who are badly accustomed, They want politics to be a matter for politicians only, that politics is a matter for the upper echelons of economic power and political power.

They still have the idea that the people do not exist or that the people are not ready for democracy“, Asserted the president from Ensenada, Baja California.

The president went on a tour of the entity, where this afternoon signed the decree that will regularize the so-called chocolate cars of Foreign origin.

“They bring this tradition that politics corresponds to or is nothing more a matter for minorities, not for the people, that is why they are now opposing the holding of this consultation,” said the president, recalling the permanence of Porfirio Diaz in power for more than three decades.

López Obrador celebrated that the law was approved so that Every three years the citizens can decide if the head of the Federal Executive is removed, because with that bad governments should not be put up with and wait a six-year term for elections where a new or new representative is elected.

For the consultation to determine if the Tabasco man is removed from the position he holds, that is, to make it binding, 40% of the electoral roll must participate. This means that if the majority of the votes choose to revoke the president, but the turnout was 39%, López Obrador will continue in his position.

I invite all the people to participate, to vote, for or against, but that we all participate to establish democracy as a way of life, establish the democratic habit in our country, because I believe that this inheritance is the legacy for the new generations, it will be very useful, because this way, there is democracy Yes, the people are in charge, ”he summoned.

The mandatary assured that the great problems of Mexico have originated from a lack of democracy. Hence, the vote must be respected and fraud avoided as, he reiterated, happened in 2006 when Felipe Calderón obtained a controversial advantage of 0.58 percent. Back then, López Obrador came in second.

Fifteen years after those elections, the current president recalled that the lack of democracy originated a wave of violence unleashed by Felipe Calderón that is still suffered in the country. He even qualified that the mistakes made by the PAN amounted to crimes.

“Imagine how much sacrifice we would have saved if the vote had been respected in 2006If the fraud had not been carried out to impose Calderón, because he did not win the Presidency, they imposed it.

“Many, many dead, disappeared, until now we are suffering from that wrong decision, from that mistake. There is no doubt that in politics mistakes are like crimes, especially when it comes to blunders, such as wanting to solve everything with the use of force, “he criticized.

According to the Alliance members of Goes Through Mexico, the revocation consultation is an act of presidential promotion. In addition, they point out that the consultative exercise would use four billion of the treasury that could be used for other needs.

The partisan representatives went to present a lawsuit of unconstitutionality against the Mandate Revocation Law on October 14 before the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN). The opposition organization is made up of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), National Action Party (PAN) and the Party of the Democratic Revolution (FART).

“With this Law of Revocation of Mandate question is unduly broadened because instead of simply and categorically asking how the mandate should or should not be revoked, it denatures it, broadening the question whether it should be ratified in the mandate, when the Constitution states that it is asking the people, you and me, who are you listening to me? is it a yes or if it is a no ”, said in a conference the PAN member Jorge Romero.
