AMLO, the great distractor

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador assured Tuesday morning that he cannot forgive Mario Aburto, the confessed murderer of Luis Donaldo Colosio, the former presidential candidate of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), as can his son, the current mayor of Monterrey. Luis Donaldo Colosio requested it.  Riojas.

There are two ways in this 2024. First, in an evaluative analysis of how the administration of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador was, considering that this is the last year of his government, he has a few months left in ownership of the national executive branch, because of his incomplete six-year term. ending in. 30 September due to 2014 electoral reforms.

In this context, it is up to citizens to evaluate what the first President of the Republic, originating from Morena and led by López Obrador, did, what he experienced and what legacy he left.

The second path to 2024, at least in the first six months, is dominated by the electoral campaign to elect a successor to President López Obrador. Three candidates are already defined, two women and one man: Claudia Sheinbaum for the Morenista ruling party, Xochitl Gálvez for the right, center and left opposition bloc, and Jorge Álvarez for the political satellite Movimiento Ciudadano.

Of course, the two axes that hold the meaning of 2024 in Mexico are interconnected. A vote to punish or support Morena could be as much a product of the current government’s assessment as it could be a vote to change direction, and even more so if it is considered that federal chamber seats, the Senate The renewal of the Republic is at stake. and the Chamber of Deputies, which can conclude in either a total vote of support or a political balance with differentiated suffrage so that all power is not assigned to a single party. Especially when the President has clearly indicated how dangerous it is to have executive and legislative power, especially when it comes to neutralizing, reducing or destroying the third power of the Mexican state, the judiciary.

Andrés Manuel López Obrador, as head of the executive branch, should not, at least in rule, go through two political paths to 2024. Their role should be referred exclusively to the Government of the Republic and should not influence the electoral process. According to the law, their interference in political campaigns is monitored and can be banned.

But the President is one of the people who knows the devil best because he is old, and twelve years in his own political campaigns has given him more outlets than retaining walls. With the rhetorical skill that characterizes him and his tendency to control politics even in the smallest movements, López Obrador moves like a fish in water in the two political axes of 2024, without falling into approval but imposing his political agenda on the candidates And for public opinion.

The analysis is that in five years and three months of López Obrador’s administration, the popular balance is neither favorable for the national leader, nor for his Morena party, which, in its desire to control everything and win everything, is the same political Rests on achievements. The PRI operated in the worst form of hegemony that had dominated the country for more than 70 years.

Mexico is a more violent country than during the six-year tenure of López Obrador’s predecessor Enrique Pena Nieto, and even bloodier than the administration of President Felipe Calderón Hinojosa, the last national leader of the National Action Party. And who allegedly led the war on drugs in Mexico to control the cartels.

In his fifth year of government, López Obrador has accrued 168,787 executions under his administration through November 2023, according to calculations by the weekly ZETA. Deliberate killings as a result of internal war between mafias with the collusion of state corporations and sectors. This figure is 37.8 percent higher than the murders recorded in the same region during the administration of Enrique Peña Nieto, and 76.4 percent more than the murders recorded in the first five years of the government of Pan Felipe Calderón Hinojosa.

In fact, López Obrador’s six-year term in office would go down as the bloodiest in Mexico’s contemporary history. The war between drug traffickers has continued to fuel the growth of cartels like Sinaloa and Jalisco, with state authority merely a passive witness to it. Furthermore, the resurgence of the Michoacana family cartels in states such as Guerrero, Michoacán, Jalisco, perhaps with other names derived from criminal cells, has contributed to a wave of violence, which in recent times has left more horrific scenes of violence. : Young people were kidnapped and killed, more than ten people were killed in a raid on an inn, residents were kidnapped in Guerrero, transporters’ conditions worsened in Taxco due to extortion, police officers were killed by half a dozen people. Dozens of people have been killed, even officially, in the brutality of the killings and in clashes with the armed forces.

The economy is also not the best. High inflation, increase in price of basic basket, increase in services like electricity (besides its terrible distribution), water and not to mention shortage of medicines in social security hospitals also leave them dead due to lack of treatment and medicines. . Health care did not reach where the President had promised, but on the contrary, due to lack of materials and hospital infrastructure without maintenance or investment, care, supplies steadily declined and surgical procedures were suspended.

Other municipalities in Acapulco, Cuyuca de Benítez, and Guerrero affected by Hurricane Otis showed Mexico that even the federal government was incapable of responding to bad weather. The area ended up in a post-apocalyptic scene after the storm, highlighting poverty, poverty, and how weak public services are in exposing the Confederacy’s looting, inattention and disinterest in keeping the nation afloat.

But there has been little talk about it in recent days as President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has become the great distraction of his government’s failures and promoter of his electoral political agenda. Over the past ten days, three issues brought to the forefront of public opinion by the President have dominated national analysis and distracted attention from the failure that is also represented by his “great deeds”, the failed Santa Lucia Airport, Nature’s Predator . Which is the very slow Mayan train, or the incomplete and failing Dos Bocas Refinery: the alleged second shooter in the 1994 assassination of Luis Donaldo Colosio Murrieta, the incomplete DEA investigation into López Obrador’s campaign financing of the Beltrán Leyva brothers in 2006, and 20 reform initiatives Joe López Obrador presented on 5 February.

These will be campaign topics as the President launches them as election bait and parties, candidates and members of the legislative and judicial branches bite into them. Even the press, propagating the will of the President, comes to dominate the social conversation along with the President’s political-electoral agenda.

Andrés Manuel López Obrador is the mastermind behind the public agenda for the 2024 election year, and is falling into the narrative being established by the opposition, satellites and his own, the president. 20 initiatives will be part of the debate over the next six months. Knowing that he will not be able to get them all, he tries harder to get what he wants, and for now, he has already managed to dominate the national discussion, He is a great man who distracts from reality. Overcome him because he couldn’t do it or simply couldn’t do it. He wanted to express his views to improve the government and the country.
