Zapotlán de Juárez, Hgo., Underlining that the referendum to revoke the mandate
it’s already a factto be held on April 10, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said that the exercise is a mechanism to evaluate the rulers in the middle of the six-year term, if they gave good results or went crazy for power.
In a press conference held in this entity, he pointed out that it is a constitutional mandate and, therefore, the Magna Carta cannot be violated;
that’s already solvedand it remains to wait for the call to know operational details.
“On April 10 the people, the entire town, are going to be asked, words more, words less: ‘Do you want the President to continue or to resign?’ (…) Revocation of mandate is that the people put and the people take away, it is a right and it will be done every three years, ”he explained.
This helps a lot, he added,
because that is how you choose for six years, but if halfway there are no good results and the rulers go crazy… Because power is a temptation when there are no principles, when there are no ideals, power stupefies the intelligent it drives fools crazy.
Before, he said, “it was ‘I arrived haiga been like haiga been’, the philosopher would say, and they last me six years. Not because?”
The time is short
Later, when speaking of the value of democracy and, therefore, banishing fraud and the use of public resources for political-electoral matters, he once again expressed his rejection of re-election.
“The one who thinks ‘I have to stay longer, because I am irreplaceable’, (is) one of the mistakes of the last progressive leftist governments in Latin America, thinking that time was not enough.
And yes, indeed, time is short and that is why more is needed to be able to consolidate the work of transformation, but no, no, no. No to reelection, that is a major teaching, not to reelectionhe warned.
