It is time for revelations for the 2024 elections and this Tuesday three senators from Morena have registered as possible “corcholatas” to seek the governorships of their states.
In a press conference in the Senate, in the middle of the regular session this Tuesday, the deputies Mónica Fernández Balboa, Antares Vázquez and Verónica Camino Farjat made their political ambitions known.
In the case of Fernández Balboa, he would choose the government of Tabasco, currently held by Morena, while Vázquez would choose Guanajuato and Camino Farjat for Yucatán, both entities owned by the PAN.
Who are the self-exposed Morena senators?
Monica Fernández Balboa – Tabasco
The Senator for Tabasco will seek to become the 4T candidate for Tabasco, a body she represents in the Senate. She has a degree in architecture and design and, among other things, served as chair of the board in the second year of the LXIV legislative session, between 2019 and 2020.
She was a federal representative from 2006 to 2009 and has worked in the governments of Tabasco, Chiapas, Tlaxcala and the Federal District throughout her career. From 2013 to 2015, she served as her state’s social development secretary.
Before he belonged to Morena, he was part of the PRD.
“To all free women and men of Tabasco, I will join this process to renew the coordination of the defense of transformation in the state of Tabasco,” he said at the conference.
In addition to Senator Fernández Balboa, Javier May, who was director of Fonatur and responsible for the Mayan train, seems to be possible “corcholatas” for Morena for Tabasco; and Centro Mayor Yolanda Osuna.
Antares Vazquez – Guanajuato
One of the opposition strongholds is Guanajuato, which was ruled by the PAN for several decades; However, Senator Antares Vázquez will seek to be appointed by Morena to try to take the company away from them.
She is a multi-member MP and holds a doctorate in education and a master’s degree in education and teacher training. In addition, she is a surgeon in La Salle and has a specialty in dermatology at UNAM.
In the political field, she is the founder of Morena, ran for federal representative in 2015, was national and state advisor to the party, also coordinated López Obrador’s election campaign in Guanajuato and was pre-candidate for governor in 2018.
In addition to the senator, the head of Profeco, Ricardo Sheffield, has also expressed his desire to participate.
Verónica Camino Farjat – Yucatán
Currently, Yucatán is governed by PAN member Mauricio Vila, one of the best-rated governors in the country, so the mission for Morena in the entity in 2024 will be complicated.
Senator Verónica Camino Farjat said she would attend Morena’s internal process for the state of Yucatán.
The lawmaker is currently one of the secretaries of the Senate Executive Committee and holds a law degree, a master’s degree in public administration and a doctorate in strategic management and development policy.
She was the PRI’s local representative in Yucatán between 2015 and 2018 and chaired the board. She later won her place in the Senate alongside Jorge Carlos Ramírez Marín, but moved to the Green Party bench and later to Morena.
