The Colima federal deputy, Claudia Yáñez Centeno, resigned this Tuesday to his militancy in Morena, the party of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, citing “dark interests and top agreements” in the internal process of the party to choose its candidates for the governorships that will be renewed in the 2021 elections.
The In her letter of resignation, a legislator accused the party’s national president, Mario Delgado, the National Elections Commission and the Morenoist Polls Commission of “Having used” the candidates for governor to “simulate” democracy within the organization and pointed out the influence of former federal delegates to win in internal polls, an accusation that was repeated among senators in recent days.
“I’m aware of, destroyed the institutionality of the party and turned it into an appendage of a twisted and questionable parallel electoral structure, it would be useless to go to your National Commission of Honesty and Justice to denounce the offense, “said Yáñez in his resignation letter, consulted by Infobae Mexico.
Also, Yáñez noted that this “condition of dependency” incapacitates Morena “to conduct himself democratically and repair the damage ”that he caused. His resignation, he indicated, has immediate effects. She asked that the party remove her from the list of affiliates that she has registered with the OTHER (National Electoral Institute).
In the letter, the Colima legislator described the internal process to elect the candidate for governor of Colima by Morena, one of the 15 governorships at stake in the 2021 elections, in addition to the total renewal of the Chamber of Deputies and thousands of local positions.
“The infamous use that you (Delgado), the National Elections Commission and the Morena Polls Commission made of those of us who aspire to be democratically elected by that party (…), and that We were registered by you for the respective internal process, ignoring that you were doing it only to give a trace of democracy to the insulting farce that turned out to be”, He expressed.
It offended my citizen dignity to the extent that it is impossible for me to continue affiliated with this party, in which in a disloyal and disgraceful way they trample on the electoral political rights of its members
For Yáñez, “It is inadmissible that due to dark interests and previous dome agreements they imposed ‘superdelegates’ as candidates, some accused of corruption, despite being ineligible for making the competition unequal “, using the letters of adhesion that all applicants signed when registering to” endorse the imposition. “
In Colima, Morena, the most powerful of Mexico, chose last week the former deputy and former federal delegate Indira Vizcaíno as his candidate for governor of the state of Colima, in eastern Mexico, for the 2021 elections.
But not everything will be honey on flakes for Vizcaíno that day. Just a few minutes before the announcement of the leaders of Morena, Federal Deputy Claudia Yáñez assured that the selection of Vizcaíno had been a “shameful imposition”. “On what merit was this covert designation based on an obscure and rigged consultation,” he added.
According to the legislator, Morena cannot avoid “harsh criticism from the people” with the “appointment of candidates with reprehensible records.” Yáñez questioned the work of Vizcaíno as a delegate of the López Obrador government in the delivery of financial support and scholarships, work that he carried out between 2018 and 2021, since according to his accusation, the list of people who received the resources was never structured.
This is not the only accusation against the leadership and the Morenista commissions in this process of selection of candidates. Also last week, the Morenoist Senator Cruz Pérez Cuéllar, aspiring to obtain the candidacy for the governorship of Chihuahua, announced that challenge the process and formally request that the survey be repeated for his entity “after thoroughly considering the conditions in which the results of the candidate selection process occurred.”
According to Pérez Cuéllar, Juan Carlos Loera, former federal delegate and deputy, was selected “against all odds”. Further, the legislator asked that the national leadership of Morena explain “with total transparency and clarity” the parameters to be measured, as well as the methodology of the surveys before they are carried out, “so that the final result is not covered with uncertainty as happened in this first attempt.”
Just this Monday, Pérez Cuéllar went further: he assured that Gabriel Garcia Hernandez, the coordinator of the federal delegates of the López Obrador government is “directly responsible for the manipulation of the process of selection of candidates to the interior” of the party, as well as “spooning” the polls in favor of their favorites.
He tries to impose his subordinates as standard bearers to the governorships, which represents a betrayal of President López Obrador
Precisely in the selection of candidates for governor, Morena has elected four former federal delegates of 11 announced so far, who left their posts a few months ago to participate in the party’s internal process, defined with surveys carried out by a Morenista commission that does not offer details about its methodology no application.
It is about Víctor Castro, selected to be the party’s candidate in the state of Baja California Sur; Lorena Cuéllar, for Tlaxcala; Indira Vizcaíno, for Colima; and Juan Carlos Loera, for Chihuahua.
The also Moreno senator José Narro Céspedes, candidate for the governorship of Zacatecas, who was also defeated, critical last week that, in the case of the Mexican Bajío entity, telephone surveys will be conducted to define the winner, as they are neither “reliable nor accurate”.
To these complications the lack of announcement of candidates for Michoacán, San Luis Potosí and Sinaloa, all entities where the competition, as in Guerrero, the other state that does not have a candidate yet, where the competition is closed.
