The trap of pushing through Claudia Sheinbaum as Morena’s presidential candidate hasn’t been made with the polls over the past ten days, as Marcelo Ebrard has denounced.
The fraud was committed. President López Obrador has been sending out all the signals for the past two years that she is the favourite; lineup of governors, cabinet, businessmen and media; providing social programs and servants to the nation; In this way, a flow of illegal money is channeled to launch the campaign, hold rallies and plague the country with billboards and fences. He came to his defense when he got into trouble and rudely allowed public funds to be used in his favour. When Claudia was ahead in the polls, López Obrador designed an internal process to house everything in a way that kept those preferences stationary (debates, criticism, contrasts, interviews are forbidden) and simulated a competition that never even existed.
Fraud is committed. They had no need, but they got stuck in the survey. They didn’t want to take any risks. After bagging it, they had to soil it to prove the impertinence. The consequence of loyalty to efficiency. The dispatch of officials to transport Claudia Sheinbaum to the locations where the survey was to be conducted was documented. Marcelo Ebrard and his team described the irregularities in detail. In a speech reminiscent of López Obrador in 2006, he put the current president in the place of Fox and Sheinbaum in the role of Felipe Calderón. If AMLO had been a victim of what they did to Ebrard, he would be screaming out loud.
There will be fraud. Sheinbaum’s dirty decision is just an announcement of things to come. The president will go to the kitchen in the presidential election. This is all the more true now that the opposition has reawakened and is feeling angry. More so now that Ebrard’s questions to the internal process resulted in the candidate being weakened even more than expected. We will see the public money and power apparatus, the state’s intelligence agencies and law enforcement agencies being used to the full, we will see the governors and secretaries operating, the businessmen threatening, the army where it’s needed and the drug dealers where it is necessary. Everything that makes Morena triumph in 2024. The man who complained the most about voter fraud in our country made his own.
The idea that 2024 would be a trial and that the President would quietly win, whoever he was, is behind him. It’s a new game.
