Marcelist representative Selene Ávila does not regret having described her pro-government peers as “traitors” who refused to allocate additional resources for the victims of the hurricane. Otis in Guerrero. “If they send me to President López Obrador's ranch, I will buy a ticket back and forth. They can separate me from the Morena bench, but not from the Chamber of Deputies,” he told us in a cell phone conversation.

Already on the right track, she attacked Ignacio Mier, coordinator of the cherry bench in San Lázaro: “His ambition (to be a candidate for governor of Puebla) left Guerrero without a penny,” he says.

The brave legislator affirms that the aforementioned coordinator saw the face of the group of deputies related to Marcelo Ebrard. He swears that he first said “yes” to the reservation presented by the deputies related to the former chancellor to label 15% of the oil surpluses, calculated at 300 billion pesos. But as the hours progressed, he postponed the approval of the reservation until he flat out told them that it was not passing and it did not pass in plenary. A majority of deputies from Morena, PVEM and PT voted against and there the hell broke loose. Selene knows that she is out of Morena's camp. The PAN, the PRI and the PRD have already invited her to join their respective benches. She also has the option of remaining independent. She still doesn't decide.


In San Lázaro we spoke with another Morena deputy who is not a Marcelist, but who is aware that in Congress there is no longer room for negotiation. “You do what the President says. That's why we don't move a single comma. The problem is that at the polls the people are going to teach us a lesson,” he summarized.


Today is “D-Day” for the 54 candidates to support Morena in the nine governorships of 2024. In Mexico City there are five shooters, but the thing is between Clara Brugada and Omar García Harfuch. Alejandro Armenta and Ignacio Mier are emerging in Puebla. The option of a woman is not ruled out, however. There are two who have possibilities: Olivia Salomón and Claudia Rivera. The polls assume in Veracruz that it will be Rocío Nahle, while in Jalisco, where Antonio Pérez, Checo's father, is competing, the odds are in favor of Carlos Lomelí.

In Guanajuato two candidates stand out: Antares Vázquez and Ricardo Sheffield; while in Chiapas the decision is between Sasil de León and Eduardo Ramírez. In Tabasco they assume it will be Javier May. While in Yucatán, everything favors Joaquín Huacho Diaz. There the strongest female option is represented by Verónica Camino Farjat. In Morelos, finally, they assume that Margarita González Saravia, director of the National Lottery, will be the candidate.


The same day that Xóchitl Gálvez registered as a PRI candidate for the Presidency, Javier Corral, resigned from the PAN, after more than four decades of militancy. The one from Chihuahua explained his reasons: “The party is entangled with the most corrupt PRI in history.” Xóchitl, on the other hand, recognized the “historical role” of the PRI in the construction of institutions.


Let those who want to re-elect Ernestina Godoy, head of the Attorney General's Office of CDMX, for four more years to learn. In accordance with The New York Times, the FGJCDMX ordered Telcel to hand over the telephone and text records, as well as the location, of several Mexican politicians and activists, including Morena militants. In the list of spied on, Santiago Taboada, mayor of Benito Juárez, appears; the Mexican Morenistas Higinio Martínez and Horacio Duarte, the PAN senator Lilly Téllez and the activist Alessandra Rojo de la Vega, among others. Of course, Ulises Lara, spokesman for the Prosecutor's Office, denied that spying was taking place. “It is investigated exclusively for legal purposes,” he assured.


The Inai is one of the autonomous organizations that López Obrador wants to erase from the map. Not only does he suffocate it by taking away its budget, but since March 22, 2022, he left it, first, with five commissioners, then with four.

The senators of the ruling majority, subject to the dictates of the National Palace, do not lift a finger to elect the three missing commissioners. They are not popular representatives, but subjects of the President. It is clear that the president does not want transparency or the right to information, much less the protection of personal data. It is not advisable to drop the anti-corruption speech.

This blockade of the “Transparency Institute”—as it is called—led its president-commissioner, Blanca Lilia Ibarra, to denounce the attacks against the Inai before the IACHR in Washington. There she said: “The autonomy of the guarantor body matters, because the human rights it protects are essential for democracy. Attacks against its autonomy, such as the lack of integration of its plenary session, matter, because the effectiveness of the right to information and the protection of personal data depends on that independence.”
