The president of Morena, Mario Delgado Carrillo, urged the Senate yesterday to discuss and debate the draft of reforms to the secondary electoral legislation to approve it in the current period of sessions.
Nobody can be called surprised or that they do not know what the electoral reform is aboutsaid Delgado.
He also regretted the vote against from the Morenista Adela Juárez:
We disagre. The truth is that it is a pity that deputies, deputies who arrive because of the movement, suddenly, well I don’t know if they allow themselves to be influenced by the right.
Consulted in relation to the opposition’s criticism that the so-called electoral reform plan B has been approved by fast track, he said that it leaves something to be desired
to the rightbut not
for the people.
It is a reform that will save many resources; that it is going to put an end to excesses, luxuries and privileges that the right and the conservatives were used to having. But now we already live in times of austerity, where most of the resources have to go to the people who need it most.he added.
According to the President
He was also reminded that Senator Ricardo Monreal stated that the draft will be submitted without haste to the legislative process. Delgado replied that
is what has to happen. It is a much discussed topic, much debated, nobody can be called surprised or that they do not know what the electoral reform is about. I believe that they can respect the times and the formalities of the Senate, I believe that they are in time to remove it in this legislative period.
Are you satisfied with the reform that Morena achieved?
-A step is taken on the issue of austerity, also sanctioning vote buying, which is undoubtedly a reform in line with what the President has been promoting.
