Mario Delgado says Va por México is like a marriage

Mario Delgado, national leader of Morena, spoke of the temporary suspension of the Va por México alliance between PRI, PAN and PRD and compared it to a marriage where there are fights and reconciliations.

“That’s how marriages are, then they fight, then they reconcile. What unites them is not some project, it is an alliance whose sole purpose is to stop the progress of our movement, but if you measure it by results, it has gone very badly for them. We cannot support ourselves in the married life of these countries,” he said.

Also, celebrated the PRI’s change of heart and support for the army’s permanence on the streets through an initiative extending it until 2028 and said poor election results had forced him to reconsider his alliance “with the worst of the right” and assured that if PRI members made a U-turn he would be recognised.

He denied that the federal government and Morena had pressured the PRI or agreed, in return, that the leader of the tricolor, Alejandro Moreno, would not be an outlaw. “Surely he doesn’t want to lose the governorships and he doesn’t want to go to jail, imagine how wasteful it is to have so many houses. The PRI is going extinct, we will defeat Coahuila and the State of Mexico. The big mistake of the PRI was the electricity reform”.

He argued that the constitutional moratorium negotiated by the opposition was not against Morena. “They thought they were harming us and that they were harming people. I don’t know if this suspension of the alliance is something temporary, what I know is that we do not make agreements in the dark,” he insisted.

A Va por México ‘is united by nostalgia for corruption’: Delgado

At a conference, Mario Delgado assured that in the Va por México alliance “the only thing that unites them is the nostalgia for corruption and complicity. They bet on allying themselves with the worst of the right wing and the results are there. This is a change they are making and I don’t know how long it will last.” and pointed out that “unlike other times, in the Fourth Transformation reforms are proposed for the benefit of the people of Mexico. Morena does not make agreements in the dark and does not collude with anyone.

He added that the initiative of PRI Vice President Yolanda de la Torre is very interesting and his party believes that it strengthens the possibility that the National Guard will continue to grow in such a way that there will come a time when the army no longer has to support the security of working on the streets. He suggested that this PRI initiative be discussed after the National Guard reform bill, which is now in the hands of the Senate, is approved.

Accompanied by the new members of the leadership and councils of state of Morena, asked senators of all parties to approve strengthening the National Guard with a vote in favor of the protocol approved by the Chamber of Deputies. “It is hypocritical for governors of other parties to want the presence of the National Guard and for their senators to oppose it. Paradoxically, those who oppose today brought the army to the streets.

“We call on all senators and senators to support this initiative, especially those from Morena and allied parties not to hesitate to push this initiative from the President of the Republic. No doubt this Guard will continue to grow, it must be protected and not corrupted”.

He also respectfully asked the nation’s Supreme Court ministers to keep unofficial pre-trial detention and said that repealing it would be tantamount to revoking the powers of the legislature that approved the reform.

On the other hand, he assured that Morena is ready to finish its internal renewal process with the National Congress, which will be held on September 17 and 18, at which the National Council will be elected and the party’s statute will be changed. “We now have the task of empowering Morena,” and warned that, aside from the triumphs achieved since 2015, “we still don’t know Morena’s true potential,” as she already has elected state leaders.

He justified that the state leaders are close to the Morena governments in the states, but assured that they will not in any way act as a “governor’s office”.
