In a strategy similar to the one used for the electrical reform, Ignacio Mier, coordinator of the morenistas in San Lázaro, said that he will propose to Jucopo to carry out a broad debate, in which the Canal del Congreso and all its platforms participate. .

We are going to invite, now not only the Radio and Television System of the Mexican State, but also all the concessionaires that have the television and radio spectrum to accompany us and that way they can socialize and Mexicans can exercise the right to be informedhe pointed out.

As part of the discussion, together with academics, scholars and political parties, the different electoral reforms that have been carried out in the country in recent years will be reviewed, he added.

At the same time, Morena’s coordinator in the Senate, Ricardo Monreal, demanded that the opposition in the Chamber of Deputies not disqualify a priori the reform and assume a reflective attitude, review the content of the presidential proposal and try to find an agreement for its approval through dialogue, before assuming definitive positions.

The deputy coordinator of Morena in San Lázaro, Leonel Godoy, stressed that they will prioritize dialogue and give maximum publicity to President López Obrador’s initiative, since it is advanced, very similar to that of Spain, to that of other European countries.

Meanwhile, the deputy coordinator of Morena, Aleida Alavez, announced that the issue will be taken to public squares and that district and state assemblies will be held.

For his part, the deputy Hamlet García stressed that the initiative proposes to save 16 billion pesos for what corresponds only to the prerogatives of the political parties.

In turn, the deputy Reginaldo Sandoval, of the Labor Party, considered it decisive that the document follow the same path as the electrical reform and give it wide dissemination, so that citizens find out what it is about, give their opinion on the initiative and join more actively in your discussion.

Deputy Godoy, meanwhile, noted that the consequences for the opposition, for turning their back on the people, by not approving the electricity reform, are already being felt. Today we saw a poll where we are up in all six states. We are going to win all six states, for this bad decision they made.
