PRI National Political Council Tonight approved a reform of the party’s laws so that it has the power to approve the expansion of the post of national president Alejandro Moreno Cardenas Until the end of the 2024 electoral process, in which the President of the Republic will be elected and the Congress of the Federation will be renewed.
For the second time in a row, without calling the National Assembly, Alejandro Moreno proposed 52 amendments to the party’s statutes Including modifying the legal wording so that the National Council itself can expand its mandate.
We advise you: Who is Alejandro ‘Alito’ Moreno, the national leader of the PRI?
Currently, PRI statutes establish that The National Council has the power to “determine the extension of the statutory term”. of the national leadership in cases where the renewal is accompanied by an electoral process or within three months before it”; That is, if the electoral process began in September before the election, on August 18, 2023, the date on which Alejandro Moreno’s term as head of the national PRI expires, it would enter that three-month period.
With 458 votes in favor and 0 votes against, various provisions have been approved to harmonize our regulatory framework with the electoral legal framework and to strengthen the organization of our party. PRI has been strengthened to face bigger challenges! pic.twitter.com/uwNoZj8r9r

But plan B for electoral reform moved the start of the electoral process to the third week of November, a year before the federal election, i.e. not later than November 17, 2023, with which August 18, 2023 falls outside the three months established by the PRI statutes.
Thus, tonight the National Political Council Changed “three months” to “ninety business days”, With which August 18, 2023 falls under that new term and, therefore, the term of the national leadership of Moreno Cárdenas can be extended.
On June 14, when various former national presidents of the PRI requested his resignation, as a result of the 2021 PRI electoral defeat, Alejandro Moreno promised them that he would not remain in the party beyond August 18, 2023. Because for that term he was elected, as Dulce Maria Sauri reported at the time, although tonight’s constitutional reform opens the way to facilitate his stay in the national leadership.
from your social media accounts Former National President of the PRI, Claudia Ruiz Macieu, wrote: “You told us @alitomoreno that you will no longer lead the @PRI_Nacional after August 19, 2023. Are you going to comply?” And he recalled that “Continuity is the basis of the national PRI to regain the confidence of the people. You cannot offer inclusion on the one hand and promote reforms in line with @alitomoreno on the other. Let us guarantee unity To respect the pluralistic, democratic and inclusive work of PRIs.
while, The coordinator of the PRI senators, Miguel Angel Osorio Chong, announced that he would challenge the reform. for statutes and asked PRI members to “raise their voice against this outrage”. And that, all of us, we save and rebuild the PRI into the pluralistic, democratic and open party that our country needs.
