Completion Claudia Sheinbaum He was chosen as the presidential candidate of Morena, Marcelo Ebrard These are fewer and fewer options that will appear on the ballot for the 2024 electoral process: if there is a new political party, it will not participate in the next election; He also cannot lead a current within the ruling party, because the laws prevent it, and the deadline to register as an independent candidate has expired.
The only possibility lies in the People’s Movement, party that did not close the door, but that was adopted as a strategic decision to define his presidential candidacy until the legal deadlines for it, that is, next November.
Leaders of The Citizen Movement confirmed that the party is examining the scenario and has not ruled out the possibility of appointing Ebrard, which they found coincident with speech and programming; However, so far they have not been in formal contact with him.
In his appeal, Ebrard alleged that there were quite serious irregularities in the internal process, such as use of social programs of the Ministry of Welfare by Ariadna Montiel, to promote Sheinbaum.
Marcelo Ebrard sent a message to Morena and AMLO
This Monday, the former chancellor assured that he will wait for the resolution of Morena’s national leadership to determine his next decisions, but He threatened to leave the party if the process was not cleaned up.
“I consider that if these different circumstances that occurred, incidents in the process, remain the same, then I will no longer have interest in being in Morena,” he emphasized after meeting with the legislators who supported him and some members of his framework. ..
In a message to the media that did not take questions, Ebrard stated: “If they are given a naturalization letter to use the social programs, so that the governors and mayors intervene; If unions are forced to send their members to events, why should I stay there? (…) This may define the future of Morena more than the future of Marcelo Ebrard. In other words, are these practices valid in Morena? Will this be the case? Will we see the same thing in all surveys to come? ”
He announced that too Starting September 18, it will organize and formalize a “National Political Movement” without their supporters, especially the legislators from Morena, PT and Verde, who had to leave their respective parties.
Although some media outlets interpreted it as the establishment of a new political party, Ebrard’s communication team denied that this was his intention.
“Marcelo Ebrard does not say that he will find a new political party, as some tweets say,” his spokesperson reported.
Besides, no new political party can participate in the 2024 elections, because the Political Parties Law establishes that the creation of parties can only happen after the presidential election.
“Citizens’ organization that intends to become a political party to obtain its registration with the Institute must, in the case of a national political party, or before the corresponding Local Public Organization, in the case of local that political party, will announce that purpose in the month of January of the year after the election of the President,” says article 11.
He also announced that between September 18 and October 2 he will tour the entire country to meet again with those who supported, supported, followed and voted for him.
However, these routes are not able to make a current inside Morena, because its laws prohibit it.
Article 43, which refers to the electoral process, establishes that “there is no form of pressure or manipulation of the will of Morena members in internal groups, currents or factions or in groups or interests of outside the party will be accepted.”
Ebrard himself refused to accept another position in Morena, clearly talking about being a senator, which is the possibility that was opened to him by the leadership of the party at the beginning of the internal process.
“I have great affection for President López Obrador, I am his longest partner, I will not harm him for political reasons, but I have to say this because Morena took a lot of work to organize and do it. Very respectfully, I have the greatest respect for the popular law, but it is not my goal to reach the senatorship or the position. “My goal is that it be resolved,” he added.
With the challenge and its routes starting next week, Ebrard has had time to stay current in and out of Morena, taking advantage of the fact that there are still two months left for parties to register pre-candidacies.
“We have to consider that we are in a process where the pre-campaigns will start on November 4,” warned the aspirant.
