This Thursday, the president Andrés Manuel López Obrador He remained firm in his decision and did not withdraw “the postscript” that he added to the initial announcement of La Mañanera, requested by the Complaints and Denunciations Commission of the National Electoral Institute (INE). However, he decided to add two more sentences and modify the order.
At the beginning of the morning press conference on October 5, a new message was broadcast before the federal president spoke.
“The best president of Mexico, Benito Juarezsaid that the triumph of reaction was morally impossible,” reads the first part.
Then, part of the text that the INE asked him to remove last Tuesday, October 3, continues. The message states:
“If you want the privileges and privileges of a few to return and for corruption, classism, racism and discrimination to continue, we recommend that you do not watch this program, that you do not participate in this circular dialogue because it may cause you some psychological damage, emotional or affect the interests you defend.”
The curtain concludes with a new paragraph.
“You are free, you don’t have to take any risks. “This program, this circular dialogue is for the daring, for rebels, not for conservatives.”
During La Mañanera on Wednesday, the leader of the Executive reproached the new INE resolution and pointed out that, with it, the electoral authorities are violating his freedom of expression.
“We are going to see how we do it, we are going to pay attention to it, so that they do not accuse us of being breaking the law“Even though it is an affront, it is a flagrant violation of freedom, freedom of expression, freedom of expression of ideas, now they become sensors,” he declared.
Likewise, he described the electoral authorities as reactionary, classist and racist, stating that they are in favor of corruption.
According to the INE Complaints and Complaints Commission, the recent order responds to the fact that López Obrador’s “postscript” contains elements and phrases of an electoral nature, which could influence the mood of Mexicans during the 2023 Electoral Process. -2024; which is why from the beginning it was asked to place a “warning”.
Therefore, they ordered the elimination of the text and specified that the Presidency must expressly disseminate in a visual and auditory manner the message previously ordered by the Complaints Commission.
It should be noted that the precautionary measure was approved unanimously, after the person in charge of the Frente Amplio por México, Xóchitl Gálvez Ruizfiled a complaint with the electoral body.
