He noted that the cindependent antics, it is not a matter of political effervescence, but human rights, so it is necessary to continue fighting against legislatures, electoral bodies and political parties that are determined to put obstacles.
“I am not going to participate in the electoral process,” he emphasized, but, in his opinion, the next governor of the state, you must be honest, scrupulously handle public resources, provide transparency, seek the unity of all sectors to build a different life project.
On the issue of security, he indicated that the police forces will have to be dignified, with more dignified salaries and other benefits, not having commitments to drug trafficking and promoting the productive sectors.
From their point of view, the new state executive that is elected must respect criticism, freedom of expression and be tolerant of dissidents, speak the truth, put aside lies, pretense and populism.
